Dolby B NR

The Pioneer CT-97 is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B noise reduction, it was introduced by Pioneer in 1976.

The main features of the Pioneer CT-97 are: 2 heads, analog 3 digit tape counter and memory stop, tape type selection with support for normal, chrome and ferro-chrome tapes, belt driven single-capstan transport.

Tape eject is operated mechanically and the cassette needs to be placed with the side to be played facing forward in the cassette well.

Level meters used on the CT-97 are analog needle VU reading meters with peak indicator for easy adjustment of optimum recording level. Mechanical transport controls for reliable CT-97 transport function selection.

The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the CT-97 by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. To further maintain recording accuracy, the CT-97 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the CT-97 can be swiched on to prevent the standard 19kHz FM pilot signal from interfering with the noise reduction system.

To make live recordings this deck has 2 microphone inputs to connect microphones with a jack connector. 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.
