Q: What’s the difference between Full Auto Stop and Auto Stop?
A: Full Auto Stop means in playback, recording, and rewind/fast forward modes, the cassette player/recorder motor will stop operating once the cassette reaches its end. With Auto Stop, the cassette player/recorder motor will stop operating in the playback mode only when the cassette reaches its end; the motor will continue running in the recording and rewind/fast forward modes until the user manually press the Stop key. Full Auto Stop automatically stops the motor which helps extending the life of the belt, a critical component of the cassette player/recorder. Califone Media Players 1776, 2385-03, 2395AV-02, 2395IR, and CAS1500 feature Full Auto Stop.
Q: What is Full Auto Stop, why is it important, and does Califone offer this feature on any models?
A: The Full Auto Stop function means when the cassette tape runs to its end during playback, recording, and rewind/fast forward modes, the motor of the cassette player/recorder will automatically stop running and the cassette operation will stop. Califone Media Players 1776, 2385-03, 2395AV-02, 2395IR, and CAS1500 feature Full Auto Stop.

Q: Does Califone have any boomboxes with detachable speakers?
A: There are no boomboxes with detachable speakers. All of the Califone multimedia players have speakers that are attached for ease in portability.
Q: Can any tape length be used when using the cassette?
A: Califone recommends using tapes no longer than 60 minutes. Longer tapes are thinner and more prone to breakage.
Q: Can the Spirit record from CD to tape or tape to CD or both?
Q: We purchased a Spirit SD boombox and are interested in purchasing some type of carrying bag or case for it. Can you recommend one of your products that would fit this equipment?
Q: What is the difference between the two Spirit boomboxes?
A: The main difference between the Spirit™ multimedia player, previously upgraded with a built-in microphone, and the Spirit SD (also with built-in mic) is that the SD model comes equipped with an SD card slot and USB port.

Q: How do I operate the built-in microphone of the Spirit™?
A: Once a blank cassette is inserted into the cassette holder of the Spirit™, simply set the function switch to “Tape” and press the RECORD button to begin recording through the built-in microphone.
Q: Are the clear plastic trays included in the Spirit™ and Performer Plus™ Rolling Audio Pods™?
A: Yes. The clear plastic trays are included in the Spirit™ and Performer Plus™ Rolling Audio Pods for easy storage and organization. Please note the books, CDs, and plastic bags are not included.
Q: Does Califone offer any media player with speakers on the rear or side?
A: Yes. Califone Spirit™ Multimedia Player features speakers on both left and right sides and rears of the unit.
Q: How many speakers does the Spirit™ multimedia player feature?
A: The Spirit™ Multimedia Player features four speakers in total; two woofers in the front, and two tweeters on the sides/rears.
Q: One of the technical specs for the boomboxes is ‘wow and flutter’. What do these mean?
A: The term “wow and flutter” applies only to cassette player/recorders and to the cassette function of boomboxes. “Wow” refers to the changes in frequency caused by irregular tape motion during recording or playback. “Flutter” is the rapid variation of signal parameters, such as amplitude, phase, and frequency.
Q: What type of battery does the Spirit™ Multimedia Player take?
A: The Spirit™ Multimedia Player takes 8 “C” cell batteries.
Q: Does the CD player of Spirit™ Multimedia Player/Recorder feature the skip function?
A: Yes. The Spirit™ Multimedia Player/Recorder features both forward skip and backward skip, enabling users to select specific track easily.
Q: Can a monaural headphone be used with the Spirit 1776?
A: The Spirit 1776 is a stereo media player and monaural headphones such as the 2985PG, the 2924AVG or any others in the 2924AV series, excluding the stereo 2924AVPS, are not compatible because the sound will only come out of one earcup instead of coming out in stereo surround sound. Monaural headphones have a ¼” plug that will not fit into the 3.5mm headphone jack found on all stereo boomboxes. All Califone® stereo headphones have 3.5’’ stereo plugs. Monaural headphones are best used with cassette player/recorders. Read more about Stereo vs Mono.
Q: The CD is not working on our 2395AV unit. Is it possible to buy the CD module?
Q: My 2455AV will not read CDs because it needs a laser pick up head. Where can I buy this component?
Q: Can I purchase a remote control for my boombox?
A: The 2455AV uses the RC-2400 remote control. The 2385AV, 2395AV and 2395IR boomboxes use the RC-2300 remote control. There is no remote control available for the Spirit 1776 boombox. The RC-2300 and RC-2400 may be purchased individually. Please contact our Customer Service Dept. for more information.
Q: Where can I find information on how to operate my Spirit 1776?
A: You can download the user manual for the Spirit 1776 located on right column of the product page to learn more information on how to operate this media player.
