In recent year, there have been major improvements in magnetic recording tape, culminating in metal tape which makes the performance of cassette tape decks almost equal to that of open-reel equipment. However, this progress in magnetic tape technology requires that the bias and equalization of the tape deck be switchable and that users must operate the switches according to the characteristics of the tape being used. As the cassette format has become more popular, it is widely used, even by professionals and audiophiles. Naturally, it is necessary that the operation of cassette tape decks be simplified, so that people can get the best possible performance from the tape they are using. JVC has conducted research into the development of a cassette deck which meets these requirements and has succeeded in developing a deck which, although it is simple to operate, automatically adjusts its recording characteristics to match those of the tape.
