Bottom Line:   
I agree with the previous review that the noise floor on this unit is quite substantial even through low end speakers. Not the best denon model. I used it as a recording deck only until I decided to get rid of it.

Bottom Line:   
When I bought this deck I planned to use it as a second tape deck just for copy some music on it with and without Dolby. Also planned to use my DBX 224 for some add-on sound track forwarded to a studio. However it did not be able for these purposes.The sound is not acceptable for me. High frequency is not high frequency in my ears. The deck have not enough dynamic range for my purpose. The tape hiss sounds as the Niagara Falls to me. I have tried to adjust and tune in both heads and levels but without acceptable results even though I used Tektronix measurement equipments to get an optimum result of the adjustments.
My opinion when opened the deck is that the electronics and mechanical solutions do not match the price -It's expensive compared to others such as Yamaha etc.
Now I have given the deck to my youngest son -he doesn't care about the sound as he is enough satisfied if the deck is working and the music is heard...

Bottom Line:   
This has been one of the best sounding tape decks that have come in some
time now. It's playback reproduction is very good. There is quite a lot of tape
hiss when the Dolby Noise Reduction is turned off, and the units mechanism is
louder than it should be. Reproducing the CD material wont let you down
since it sounds even better in the car or on a mini-system. It is very easy to
use. For the price it is a little expensive, but it is worth it!
