Cambridge P50 funky tape loop.
I have an old Cambridge Audio P50 amp that seems to have weird tape facilities. Here's the problem:
When using the tape monitor switch, I can only control the volume via a sensitivity pot in the back of the amplifier, and the balance does not work. Using the tape in the aux or radio inputs, everything is okay.
Is this normal? I cannot imagine that the tape function is designed this way?
OTOH, the sensitivity pot in the back has quite a large knob; something that looks designed for "easy" use?
Again, help/circuit diagram would help..

I have one of these amps and I have some odd switching behavour. In the end I gave up on it and just connected everything through a switch box (the P50 didn't have enough inputs anyway).
I had it on the bench a while ago to replace some of the now very old and dried up caps and I couldn't figure out what was wrong. I just though my amp was knackered.
If you do get a cct diagram for it I'd love to get a copy.
Best of luck.

Re: Cambridge P50 funky tape loop.
normally tape output level is fixed, and the volume,
tone and balance controls do not affect it.
This perfectly sensible design.
The only thing unusual is the variable output level.
