General Description

The MC 2 is the cassette deck of Telefunken's entry system M 2. It follows the concept of all other components of this system: leave out all features that are not absolutely needed, concentrate on the basics, but keep the overall quality, thereby allowing a good price-quality ratio. The drive control is therefore purely mechanical (except for the PP 100 deck), this is the only mechanical drive among the 1981 devices, and the controls are reduced to the absolute minimum. But it still has High COM, and the electrical values are comparable to devices that are much more expensive.

An interesting detail about the MC 2 is that the High COM circuitry is fully integrated into the main PCB, while all other Telefunken decks so had the High COM circuits on separate daughter boards.


High COM, Dolby-B compatible, Fe/Cr/Metal, 2 LED Peak Level Meters, mechanical tape counter
