One interesting note about the JVC SR-S388E i noticed today when browsing about in manuals, it seems to share ICs and mechanism with the pre-1998 JVC comsumer decks, so it's more akin to e.g the HR-S9400E (albeit without the dynamic drum) than the common JVC TBC decks which are all from 1998 (e.g S9500) or later and which adopted a redesigned mechanism and compacted several ICs into the main Video/Audio IC. How well it works in practice though I have no idea. on

Also different note about PAL JVC SVHS decks, besides ones with Philips badges there are some Thomson-badged variants of the JVC SVHS decks, including some with TBC, though I don't know which ones correspond to what JVC/Philips ones.

I have a number of Chromium tapes that have audio only recorded onto them using a Panasonic NV-HD675B using the RCA inputs on the machine (in SP mode) recorded in 1999. (The audio is from a radio station after limiter/compression but before transmission, so is fairly loud) I want to extract the audio now from the tapes, but have been advised that I should get a machine that produces a cleaner outgoing audio signal, than simply getting another NV-HD675B machine?? Can anyone let me know if that is true? and which machine/s would best lend themselves to extraction of the audio only.

Thank you, very useful!

I really like my HR-S7965EK, but didn't realize or more likey just forgot) it was one of the final with-TBC decks. Some of the EOL JVC decks were the best of the best.

I see the SR-V10E is missing.
Also SR-VS30E, an excellent S-VHS deck (but terrible DV deck).

Isn't the SR-V10E at least German? I thought so. Both German and Australian. In fact, one of the very few Australia native PAL decks, made and sold for that market, not just import from Europe.

I did some more research in regards to the JVC SR-VS30E, JVC SR-MV30, JVC SR-V10E.
I can't find any information in german video magazines, advertisements or video forums.

The only thing I found was a german user manual for the SR-V10E. The SR-V10E is from JVC's Professional series. The SR-V10E can still be added to the list.

For the SR-VS30E, I'm not sure if it was sold in Germany, I can't find any informationen in german language.

For the SR-MV30 I only found information about the NTSC version.

2002: JVC SR-V10E with TBC (JVC Professional Series)

2002: JVC SR-VS30E MiniDV + SVHS with TBC
2004: JVC SR-MV30 DVD + SVHS with TBC (NTSC)

1999: JVC HR-S7600 with TBC (Champagne Color) should have DD and S-VHS ET, At least the HR-S7600AM and HR-S7600U (black) which I'm certain they are.

You have to pay attention to the correct designation of the name.

The full name for the device is JVC HR-S 7600EU.

The JVC HR-S7600AM and JVC HR-S7600U are different devices.

This means JVC-HR-S7600EU with TBC, no DD, no S-VHS ET.

Yeah they used 8xxx for the almost top of the line model in Europe for those years, so the 8600EU/EK does have DD and is more akin to the 7600U than the 7600EU. Some features also came later to the european variants, such as SVHS ET (one gen later) and video stabilizer which is only on the very late European models.

Not sure where the AM variants were sold, they seem to be models designed to handle both standard NTSC and PAL (as opposed to NTSC on PAL playback on the Ex models, may have tuner for both but not sure).

The S388E may or may not have been sold in Germany, at least it was sold in Europe somewhere but seems it was pretty rare according to this post.

Besides that, there were some philips SVHS decks (2000s ones) and some with Thomson/Telefunken (and maybe their other brands?) that shared parts with the JVC ones. Not sure how the relationship was exactly.

Oh I see, So 7600 is the base model and the letters indicate the added features.
@ hodgey: The HR-7600AM was an international model probably made in Singapore, It is the only model ever made including non JVC brands with S-VHS and line TBC with native 525/626 scanning (no conversion between standards), PAL, NTSC 5.58, NTSC 4.43 and MESECAM ( no SECAM).

I would say the letters at the end mostly (if not entirely) indicate the target market. Here is lordsmurf's breakdown of JVC's letter codes. This reply and this one are good too.

Would it be possible to incorporate or list remote control compatibility between the various recommended VCR units?

For example, JVC HM-DH40000U VCR's (refurbished or otherwise) are almost always sold missing their remote (JVC LP21036-013 I think), but they are effectively useless without one since the buttons on the unit are limited. What other remote(s) would work with the JVC HM-DH40000U?

I believe that it would help a lot of people if any of the recommended VCR's that require a remote to be useful also had compatible JVC or universal remotes listed, especially since this thread is a top search result for these projects. Thanks.
