Steven L. Bender's Home Page, with Information on:

The BENDER line of Rebuild Amplifiers.


In general, two types of manuals are available in the list below, with some variations among them. Owners or OP Manuals typically tell about the method and sequences of setting and pressing the switches for proper threading and operation of a tape deck or other audio gear. The OP Manuals point out the machine specific functions and their intended uses.

The Service Manual is more likely to include information on the disassembly and technical information for the repair or the testing of such audio equipment. Almost all of the known technical information on a set such as: factory specifications and measurement methods ( for tape speed, W&F, Signal to Noise Ratio, THD, etc.) as well as adjustments of the transport mechanism and electronic level adjustments will also be found. Service Manuals also contain important photo's of the machine and pictorials of the major printed circuit boards, and exploded views of the internal mechanical assemblies and the head block. Detailed full schematic diagrams are included. Some Service Manuals had a separate Parts List; most of the later ones include the Parts List sections.

In almost all cases a Set of Schematics is also available. These are the same as are included with the Service Manuals.

Sets of enlarged copies of the pages containing the internal mechanical assembly views are also available separately.


Here is a List of Copies of Akai Manuals for Sale:



Most of the following AKAI Service Manuals are reprints ( except for early ones ) printed quad-pages on 11" x 17" quad page paper using high resolution copy machines, with 90lb. Card Stock Covers, and center stapled, made to look just like the original factory manuals. Older manuals are typically just double sided copies with a top staple. Overall quality can vary, depending how well the original has withstood the test of time - these can be from 20 years to over 40 years old. All Service Manuals have complete schematics and most feature large pictorials.

Akai (no model number) Stereo Tapecorder - Operators Manual $15.00 plus shipping. This manual has very funny Engrish, and my guess is that it probably dates from 1958-1960 for a two piece stereo tape deck that likely was Akai's first Stereo machine. I guess at the time, Akai couldn't afford a proper translator
