Very clear scan, I recommend it. Definitely a must have for any 3362 owner.
Alpine could have written a slightly more complete manual, though. It's already pretty huge, but the unit has so many functions, I feel some more explanation would have been better.
Yamaha's manual of their comparable YDSP-1 is a little better in my opinion.
Immediate response with excellent service - highly reccommended

To keep the tape clean
To clean the head
â¢ Always store the cassettes to their storage cases after use. â¢ Do not store cassettes in the following places: â Subject to direct sunlight â With high humidity â At extremely hot temperatures â¢ Clean the head after every 10 hours of use using a wet-type head cleaning tape (available at an audio store). When the head becomes dirty, you may realize the following symptoms: â Sound quality is reduced. â Sound level decreases. â Sound drops out. â¢ Do not play dirty or dusty tapes. â¢ Do not touch the highly-polished head with any metallic or magnetic tools.
â¢ Do not play the cassettes with peeling labels; otherwise, they can damage the unit. â¢ Tighten tapes to remove slack since loose tape may become entangled with the mechanism. â¢ Do not leave a cassette in the cassette compartment after use, as the tape may become slack.
