The Pioneer CT-W830R is a stereo double cassette deck with Dolby B/C and HX-Pro noise reduction, it was introduced by Pioneer in 1990.

The main features of the Pioneer CT-W830R are: 2 heads, electronic tape counter with 4 digits, automatic tape type selection with support for normal, chrome and metal tapes, belt driven auto reverse transport.

Typical front loading double cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on both sides 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.

Level meters used on the CT-W830R are generic digital peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the CT-W830R let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby C-type used in the CT-W830R provides 20 dB of noise reduction above about 1,000 Hz, fully doubling the amount given by B-type. The Dolby HX PRO system provides precise bias control during recording to reduce distortion and improve linearity in the high-frequency range, the result is recorded sound that is highly faithful to the original. To further maintain recording accuracy, the CT-W830R incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the CT-W830R can be swiched on to prevent the standard 19kHz FM pilot signal from interfering with the noise reduction system.

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.
