So I just hooked up my new JVC S7600u and played a tape that I just watched on my JVC S3900u the other day. It's a recording of The Maneaters of Kumaon broadcast over some unknown cable network on TBS in what Ive been told is the early 90s. Im not sure what speed it is recorded at....but Im fairly certain it is a tape of a tape....probably 2nd generation. Anyways, the S3900u exhibited unatural redish tint over the whole image, and so did the S7600u until I engaged the TBC, which seemed to remove that and offer more natural looking colors and skin tones.

So far pleased with the unit. Kind of unfamiliar with the jog shuttle FF an Rewind, but both are working. Tape handling seems good.

Is there anything the S9600u can do that the 7600u cannot?


On the Features list on the JVC website, the only differences I can see are...

4MB vs 2MB Memory on the Digipure TBC circuit
Ghost Reduction Tuner
Jog Shuttle on the Remote
J Terminal (whatever that is)
Champagne Colored Chasis and Remote

That is what 200 extra clams bought you.

This thing is really sweet. The TBC/DNR button really cleans up EP mode recorded tapes. Im gonna hook up the S3900u and check out a commercial recorded SP tape tonight, that I looked at yesterday and see how they compare.
