Aiwa XKS9000 has coaxial and optical digital inpuls and an internal digital-to-analog converter (DAC). The DAC is activated by a rear-panel slide switch adjacent to the digital inputs; you can switch ii off entirely when you're not using it, thereby preventing the possibility of clock noise gening into the analog circuitry. The recording source (line/Mic'" or Digital") and digital input ('"Optical" or "Coax") are selected by front-panel swi1ches. The DAC aulomatically adapts to the da1a rate: 32 kHz for. Digital broadcasts and some DATs.
44.1 kHz for CD and prerecorded DATs. And 48 kHz for home-recorded DATs. The chip is billed as a dual-channel, 18-bil device fed by an cigh1-times oversampled digital filter.

Video will open in a new window. For sale NEW AIWA XK-S9000 GOLDEN EDITION Flagship model , last well build , KING of all AIWA'a Decks and beat many other brands including Reel to Reel decks. Has Digital inputs TOSLINK and Coaxial and accepts up to 88kHz input signal , getting close to VINYL Sound! Aiwa fills the bill with a well-designed headphone amplifier whose output impedance (54 ohms) is aimed at delivering maximum level into typical consumer headphones.
Achieved when the headphone impedance matches the source impedance. The XK-S9ooo·s four-motor transport is, without question, the quietest lve experienced. When the cassette is loaded (this happens automatically when the cassette is dropped into the door slot), it is clamped against a resilient pad to damp shell vibration.
To optimize torque characteristics during recording and playback and yet provide fast tape spooling, different motors drive the reels in fast-wind and in normal record/play modes. Servo motor, which operates the dual-caps1an drive. Is on a floating mount to reduce transmission of vibration, and a fourth mo1or is activated to operate the door. This deck's speed accuracy is stellar and is independent of line voltage, fast wind times are reasonably swift, and record/play wow and flutter is well below average.
Adding to the impression of solidityand quiet competence are the XK-S9000' s resonance-deadening wooden base with oversize feet, high-gloss simulated-rosewoodside panels. And twin power transformers--one for the analog circuitry. One for 1he digital each extending outside the rear panel.
More important from the performance standpoint is 1he ultra- stiff headbasc casting that is mounted on three points to increase stability and reduce resonance Finally, a head stabilizer is used to reduce vibration of the head assembly itself. The recording and playback sections seem to be well shielded from each other. Each uses an amorphous core wound with'"stress free ultra-pure'" copper. The erase head is built around a double- gap Sendust core.
The XK-59000 has Dolby B- and C-typc noise reduction. It also equipped with Dolby S NR. Although This noise-reduction system has elicited a rather limited following, possibly because a deck must meet stringent performance standards-vis-a-vis azimuth alignment, tapematching facilities..To be granted a Dolby S license. To top it off, a Dolby S chip set (in this case, manufactured by Sony) is more expensive than a simple Dolby B/C chip. But with Dolby S noise reduction and a top-grade tape, cassette dynamic range can approach that of CD or DAT, so Dolby S NR is a system devoutly to be wished for. Aiwa XK-S9000 also features Dolby HX Pro headroom extension. Unlike many of those decks, the XK-S9000 lets you defeat the HX Pro system if you wish. HX Pro was one of the few options whose status is not indicated on the display panel and whose button has such a short throw that it was hard for me to tell whether the system was on or off. Although the XK-S9000 automatically sets bias and equalization for the generic type or tape being used, you can tweak it for the particular brand you're using. These adjustments are made with four controls arranged just under the 0 Record Lever' pot. One knob switches the calibration system on and off and, when on, increases the indicator sensitivity to display level in 0.5-db increments. Aiwa uses 400-Hz and 10.
KHz test tones for setup. The high-frequency signal appears on the upper (left-channel) level indicatory the 400-Hz signal appears on the lower (right channel) level indicator. You adjust bias and record sensitivity until both level indicators hit red tick marks that appear on the display when the deck is in the calibration mode. The fourth knob has an unusual and quite interesting function. It permits you to modify the recording equalisation by :t 2 dB at I 0 kHz prior to adjusting bias and recording sensitivity.
This means you can adjust the balance between a tape>s low-frequency maximum operating level (MOL) and its high-frequency saturation operating level (SOL) to fit the characteristics of the mwic that youre recording and still maintain flat frequency response. For example, if you·re recording classical music, which is likely to have substantial bass and midrange energy but relatively moderate table levels, you can switch.. Rec EQ,, to "High" before adjusting bias and record sensitivity.
This will give you a bit more low-frequency headroom at the sacrifice of a tad of high frequency headroom. For synthesized music with a lot of surrealistic highs, you might want to switch Rec EQ. To "Low, " to augment high-frequency headroom at the expense of low.
Either way, you still get fiat frequency response and proper Dolby tracking, because "Bias" and.. Rec Sensitivity are set after the recording equalization is modified.Another novelty on this deck is Aiwa's Blank Tape Optimized Recording BTOR system. There are two record buttons on the front panel, one marked "Rec'' and the other "B-Rec. " With "B-Rec, the erase head is deactivated since it's not needed with virgin or bulk erased tape. Aiwa claims that the result is well-dampened sound, sound expansion, less distortion, and clear sound reproduction:' On the more traditional front, the Aiwa XK-S9000 has a quasi real- time tape counter (with memory for rewinding to counter zero) with a blinking warning when you're within 3 minutes of the end of the side, a multi-function display (all display functions active, only the tape counter active, all display functions defeated), a defeat able MPX filter, a record mute, and timer-operated record and playback with a play/repeat option. The remote control can be used to open and close the door, reset the counter, enable counter memory, toggle through the display choices, operate the transport (rewind/review, play, fast forward/cue, recordbut not B-Rec, stop, and pause), and activate record mute Tape Section Frequency Response (± 3 dB): 13 Hz to 24 kHz with Type IV tape; co 22 kHz with Trpe II tape and to 21 kHz with Type I tape.
