Our take on the JVC TD-W354 by Crutchfield's Barry Montgomery
With this sturdy full-logic dubbing deck from JVC, you'll enjoy top-notch cassette convenience for playback and recording. Along with dual-well auto-reverse playback, and auto-reverse recording on deck B, the TD-W354 offers JVC's handy Compu Calibration system: Load a tape, press a button, and in less than 20 seconds the deck adjusts bias, equalization, and sensitivity for the best possible recording with that specific tape. Dolby B and C keep your music clean, while Dolby HX Pro lets you record at "hotter" levels with less distortion. And musicians will love the microphone input, which lets you mix your own voice or instrument into a recording.
A cool variable pitch control lets you speed up or slow down tape playback great for studying musical passages, or for matching song tempos with aerobics or dance tapes. Thanks to multi music scan, you can get right to the song you want to hear. You can even "relay play" two tapes for four sides of nonstop tunes!
