Sony TC-K8B Stereo Cassette Deck Meters

The meters on the TC-K8B were LCD, and had both a wide range (-40 dB to +5 dB (a range of 45 dB compared to the 23 dB range of meters of the day, and the 38 dB range of my other deck). In addition, the meters had 64 elements per channel, giving a much finer definition of signal strength than is typical. These meters were also used in Sony's top of the line cassette deck (TC-K88/TC-K88B), which was a slim, rack-mountable unit, with a tray loading system similar to a CD tray.
