B215 Cassette Deck

The Revox B215 cassette deck was the successor to the legendary Revox B710 and, just like this unit, was far ahead of its time. All this despite the fact that Revox was very late in bringing a cassette recorder onto the market. The B215 is considered by hi-fi enthusiasts to be one of the absolute reference devices in the field of cassette recorders. The special features and quality of this unit were achieved through a number of technical refinements and innovations, and through Revox's long experience with tape machines. Stable and precise tape guidance round off the playback of the B215 cassette deck.
The Revox B215 has the state-of-the-art calibration computer of the time with an integrated tone generator with three frequencies. 500 Hz for the level (Level), 4 kHz for the equalisation (EQ) and 17 kHz for the bias or pre-magnetisation, which is done at 105 kHz. Both channels are measured and adjusted separately. Within 20 seconds, six different measurements determine the settings for recording volume, equalisation and bias, and the data is stored in one of the 6 memory locations. In addition to manual, fully automatic leveling and recording was also possible through peak level measurement and holding. This concept stands for studio sound quality.
