Default Re: Philips N4520 alignment problems

I've adjusted the heads with the active part of the head just below the edge of the tape and the crosstalk is much worse. So I've adjusted the replay head for minimum crosstalk on a known good recording and adjusted the record head for minimum crosstalk on its own recordings. I don't think I can do anything else. The crosstalk is only really noticeable in quiet passages and then only if the volume is turned up.

The other possibility is to record on one side only.

I did wonder about the apparently wider "tracks" on the heads but not having seen any other examples I don't know if this is "normal" for this recorder.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions.

Keith
