These recorders have separate record and playback heads, so when you are recording you can monitor the input signal (DIRECT) or the off tape (TAPE) signal that has been recorded, this confident monitor switch saves you from having to keep playing the tape back to check the recording. If recording from an open microphone it is best to use closed headphones, like the Sennheiser HD25 when monitoring off tape, or you will hear the direct and off tape signals and you could get feedback
