Nakamichi CR-3
Dolby C logo Dolby B NR Wired Remote Control Metal Tape Full Logic 3 Head

This Nakamichi CR-3 is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B and C noise reduction, it was first sold by Nakamichi in 1988 with a list price of USD $795 and discontinued 2 years later in 1990.

The main features of the Nakamichi CR-3 are: 3 discrete heads and off-tape monitoring, digital tape counter with 4 digits and memory stop, manual tape type selection and capable of handling normal, chrome and metal tapes with additional manual equalization selection, belt driven dual-capstan transport.

Typical front loading cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on the left side of the deck. Tape eject is operated mechanically and the cassette needs to be placed with the side to be played facing forward in the cassette well which is opened by a damped mechanism.

Level meters used on the CR-3 are digital LED peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the CR-3 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby C-type used in the CR-3 provides 20 dB of noise reduction above about 1,000 Hz, fully doubling the amount given by B-type. The 19kHz multiplex pilot slgnal present in FM stereo broadcasts can cause false triggering of the noise reduction system. The switchable MPX filter of the CR-3 filters out the pilot signal, and assuring proper Dolby processing of FM stereo programs.

For undisturbed listening a jack connector for a pair of stereo headphones is supplied. Connection to other audio components for plaback can be achieved by a RCA cable and recording from a source by a RCA cable. All main transport commands can be issued remotely with a wired remote control.
