The Nakamichi Dragon is a truly unique deck.

It is a direct drive, auto reverse cassette deck incorporating the epoch making NAAC system for automatic azimuth correction of the playback head.

Thanks to the NAAC system, sound quality differences between forward and reverse are completely eliminated and perfect playback is possible under all conditions.

Furthermore, manual calibration facilities for record sensitivity and bias permit high precision adjustment to suit the requirements of every tape.
