  • Pioneer RT-909 - Functions explained

    Found this video online and thought it very informative. Printed manuals are wonderful, but it's just so much easier to understand when you have a video guide such as the one posted. This video will be a nice refresher when I finally start using my own RT-909.

    Happy for you Johnny. The RT-909 is a rock solid performer. There are only few things that can go wrong due to age such as the main belt that drives everything (other than FF and REW) and the two pinch rollers. If you see any degradation in tape movement, I would suggest replacing the main belt or just do it since there's high chance it may have been already stretched. The pinch rollers can be sent to Terry for rebuild. As for functionality, I often wished it had the 15 ips and two track capabilities like the Technics RS-1500s. However, playing the prerecorded commercial tapes and moving the cassettes onto R2R, it's ideal.

      Thanks Ki and your recommendations as to parts are duly noted. I have so many things on the go at the moment that take priority, but I hope to delve into tape a little later this year. My focus is aimed at transcribing some valuable LP's onto tape and to make some compilations of various genres.

          I'm a big Progressive Rock fan and have just about everything on vinyl from Pink Floyd, Supertramp, Genesis, Alan Parsons, Harmonium and a smaller selection from most of the other big names like Jethro Tull, Yes, ELP, King Crimson and many more. I'm a huge Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton fan as well. The British Invasion hit me hard!

          I also love female voices. Rickie Lee Jones, Sarah Mclachlan and Linda Ronstadt being my faves.

          I could go on for days Ki as the late sixties, seventies and a good portion of the eighties produced the best in rock music.
