JVC Super ANRS cassette deck
« on: May 15, 2023, 07:12:05 PM »
I have a bunch of 1982-1983 GD uncirculated aud masters recorded with JVC Super ANRS. Does anyone have a Super ANRS deck or decoding unit??

Wow I never heard of ANRS before!
JVC made a portable, all right, and it's cool looking!


None of the ANRS decks seem to sell for all that much, considering age and obscurity!?

The KD-1636 was the portable, ran off batteries, A/C or DC, and there are a bunch of home format models with A/C only.





I hope you figure out something easy, like someone here has one in good shape! Otherwise, Ebay's got one with a "warranty" for under $300.

There’s quite a few available on eBay but I just can’t spend $300 so I could transfer someone else’s masters, I assume skip it at that point. There’s also an outboard Super ANRS / Dolby decoder too. I transferred one shows without any NR decoding and it didn’t sound right. I was hoping that a PEQ would do the job but it’s not the result I was hoping for. Hopefully someone has a working deck.

Looks like I found a cassette deck with Super ANRS, I’m all set!! Hopefully someday I’ll find a JVC NR-50 so I can play the tapes on my Nak CR-7A

This thread on Tapeheads discussed the ANRS and Super ANRS systems and the last few posts specifically talk about the NR-50.

One big problem is that super anrs only appeared on some jvc decks and I’m not not knocking them, but they were not totl decks.
So, you might be comparing a recording made on 2 head deck with sanrs to recording made on a three head totl deck with full calibration , but recorded with Dolby c.
I have used my nr-50 boxes with my luxman k-03 and hk 491. Remember that the nr-50 also has Dolby c and I’ve used it too.
My opinion is that it sounds better than Dolby c. However, unless you have one of these rare boxes hooked up to your Revox , nak , etc , it really is meaningless.

Christiaan Marcum sent me his JVC KD-A55 cassette deck so I should be ok. Hopefully the deck works well enough to transfer these tapes.

glad you found a deck. If it needs repairs or refurbishes, or if you need advice about specific model/brand issues, tapeheads is a great place for it.
I found these two with a brief google search.
