This is a full time code sync recorder the TC/pilot indicator is white, the small time code 5 pin lemo plug is for sending or receiving time code sync to will allow you to lock sync to a film camera or you can use a QSCM CUE MIKE to put announcements on the tape that on playback you can monitor on headphones when switched to CUE track

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 confidence 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

Above, the 3 pin XLR microphone inputs connectors are XLR sockets, so the right way around for modern microphones
