The Marantz PMD510 dual-well cassette deck, created specifically for professional applications, delivers top-quality recording and playback for use by recording studios, DJs, corporate installations, and even the home consumer. Each of the two wells is a completely independent cassette deck--you can record on one while simultaneously playing a tape on the other--and has its own distinct set of inputs and outputs, pitch controls, bar graph meters, linear time counters, Dolby B/C selectors, and transport buttons. In addition, the two wells can work together to record from a single input, or the user can connect several PMD510 decks together to create long-term continuous recording and playback.

Recording studios and mastering facilities will appreciate the enhanced sound quality of the PMD510, in addition to the space saved by storing two decks in a single chassis. DJs can play one deck at a specific pitch while listening to the other on headphones, then cue the second at a different pitch for creative mixing. Other potential professional users include churches--the deck can play background music alongside live vocals and instruments on one well, while recording the results on the second--or dance studios, which can take advantage of the separate pitch control to slow down or speed up music. The PMD510 is flexible enough to integrate into almost any system.

Other features include normal and high-speed dubbing, autoreverse, quick music search, synchro-start recording, and an automatic tape type selector. The unit offers a 1/4-inch headphone jack, and is compatible with both infrared wireless and wired remote controls.
