The Pioneer CT-F9090 is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B noise reduction, it was introduced by Pioneer in 1977 and discontinued a year later.

The main features of the Pioneer CT-F9090 are: 2 heads, analog 3 digit tape counter and memory stop, manual tape type selection with support for normal, chrome and ferro-chrome tapes (automatic for chrome tapes) with additional manual equalization selection, belt driven single-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 directly over the head block. Additionally the heads can be easilly accessed for cleaning.

Level meters used on the CT-F9090 are analog needle VU reading meters with peak indicator for easy adjustment of optimum recording level. Mechanical transport controls for reliable CT-F9090 transport function selection.

The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the CT-F9090 by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. To further maintain recording accuracy, the CT-F9090 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the CT-F9090 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.
