If you are seeking an Akai open reel or cassette deck remote control, please fully review the following item listing for full technical details on compatibility of this remote control unit with Akai tape decks, as well as this remote unit's substitution compatibility for other Akai remote control models.


**** INTRODUCTION
Genuine original
Akai RC-32 wired remote control unit, with special modifications. This particular special unit RC-32 wired remote control has been modified to function as a fully compatible remote control substitute unit for a number of earlier model Akai open reel deck / cassette deck remote control systems. This wired remote control has a connection cord of about 12 1/2 feet (about 3.8 metres), and terminates with a DIN type 8-pin connector that is used on many modern Akai tape deck models that supports an optional external remote control unit.

A wired remote control has advantages over wireless infrared remote controls, including elimination of remote receiver battery usage (this remote requires no power source), and without the need to aim the remote directly at the tape deck. This is particular useful in environments where the tape deck may be hidden, or placed behind tinted glass that may normally obstruct infrared rays from other remotes, or out of direct view of the operator. The 12 1/2 feet remote cord will accomodate a wide range of distances from the tape deck's location.

This RC-32 remote control unit has long been discontinued, is no longer available, and availability is extremely rare.
Made in Japan
