NAD 613 CASSETTE DECK
The recorder may be installed on any stable sur-
face that is not subjected to vibration or intense mag-
netic fields. It should not be placed directly on a loud-
speaker, a television set, or a large power amplifier
where it might pick up hum from the amplifier's power
transformer. if you wish to install the recorder next to
an amplifier on the same shelf, place the recorder on
the left so that its cassette compartment will be locat-
ed away from the amplifier.
WARNING TO UK USERS. If this appartus is not fit-
ted with a UK three-pin plug, do not attempt to insert
the attached plug into a UK mains socket. Instead, cut
the plug from the mains lead and attach a fused UK
three-pin plug using the following safety advice on
IMPORTANT. The wires in this mains lead are
coloured BLUE and BROWN;
The colours of these mains lead wires may not corre-
spond with the coloured markings identifying the ter-
minals in your plug. In this case the BROWN wire
must be connected to the terminal which is marked
L(ive) or coloured RED. The BLUE wire must be con-
nected to the terminal marked N(eutral) or coloured
BLACK. No connection should be made to the termi-
nal marked E or coloured green or green and yellow
To ensure that maximum performance of the NAD
613 cassette deck is maintained over time, please
bear the following precautions in mind:
A. Make sure the heads and transport are cleaned
regularly. Please refer to page 8.
B. Demagnetise both heads and tape guidance from
time to time. Please refer to page 8.
C. The bearings and other moving parts have been
treated with special lubricants and are therefore main-
tenance-free. Additional lubrication can actually cause
D. Do not position the deck near equipment with
strong magnetic fields, such as loudspeakers or tele-
E. Place the deck on a solid, flat surface.
F. Avoid dirt, dust, sand, etc. from entering the deck.
G. Avoid placing near transmitters: they can generate
high frequencies which may cause malfunctioning of
H. Ensure the cassette deck compartment lid is
closed when the deck is not in use. Open it only for
taking a cassette in or out, or for cleaning the heads
and tape guides.
I. Do not place the deck directly on top of a (power)
amplifier or receiver. The deck may pick up hum from
the amplifier's power transformer. Some amplifiers
can also generate a fair amount of heat, even when
WARNING : BEFORE PLUGGING IN THE UNIT FOR
THE FIRST TIME, READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION
Some models are designed for use only with the
power supply voltage of the region where they are
AC 230V, 50Hz
U.S.A. and Canadian models:
AC 120V, 60Hz
THE CASSETTE TAPES
A. Store the cassette tapes in their jewel case, away
from dust. Never store tapes in direct sunlight or very
B. Always use cassette tapes of a good quality.
Besides mediocre results, poor quality tapes can
cause excessive head wear.
C. Never touch the exposed tape itself or take it out of
its cassette casing.
D. In most cases the cassette tape has a five to eight
second leader tape at both the beginning and end of
a cassette tape. As you cannot record on this leader
tape, be sure to commence recording beyond this
REAR PANEL CONNECTIONS &
The numbers in the text refer to the connections in
figure "REAR PANEL CONNECTIONS"
This cassette deck can be connected to almost all
pre-amplifiers, integrated amplifiers or receivers.
Ensure the plugs are fully inserted and the recording
and playback cables are connected properly.
Connect a cable from the deck's "LINE IN" jacks at
the rear panel to the TAPE OUT or REC jacks of your
amplifier. Connect the left channel of the deck to the
left channel of the amplifier and connect the right
channel of the deck to the right channel of the amplifi-
er. Normally, the red plug is used for the right chan-
nel, the black or white plug for the left channel.
Please refer to figure 1.
Connect a cable from the deck's "LINE OUT" jacks
at the rear panel to the TAPE IN, PLAY, or MONITOR
jacks of your amplifier. Connect the left channel of the
deck to the left channel of the amplifier and connect
the right channel of the deck to the right channel of
the amplifier. Normally, the red plug is used for the
right channel, the black or white plug for the left chan-
nel. Please refer to figure 1.
3. NAD LINK.
The "NAD Link IN" connector allows the NAD 613
to be operated by external remote control signals
passed from another NAD remote control component
featuring NAD Link, e.g. AV 716 receiver. NAD Link
works in a "daisy chain" fashion, connections going
from one unit to the next one. Many NAD receivers
and AV components come supplied as standard with
an NAD system remote control which sports buttons
for most used tape transport functions (Play, Record,
Fast Forward, Rewind, Stop, etc.). It is recommened
that the NAD 613 is the second unit in the daisy chain
after the "master" unit, usually a receiver. Connect a
cable from the master unit Link Out (e.g. the AV 716)
to the NAD Link IN jack on the 613.
