Other Notes: "Nakamichi's auto-calibration system is "radically new" for cassette, but in fact is identical to the calibration process as used on professional reel-to-reel machines where the first step in calibrating a machine for recording is to align the azimuth. The flow chart below for the Nakamichi Auto Calibration is comparable to a "quick alignment" on a reel-to-reel deck. A full alignment on a reel-to-reel deck would involve more test tones or a frequency sweep, and a few more iterations of EQ adjustment. The Nakamichi Auto Calibration process for recording goes further than any other cassette deck maker when it comes to calibrating correctly." - The Audio Archive
