Additional Details

Description

A four-track stereo tape deck with two tape speeds (7½ & 3¾ ips) and a seven inch reel capacity. The transport employed a 4/8 pole self-lubricating hysteresis synchronous capstan drive motor and two eddy-current outer-rotor reel motors. This was an auto-reverse tape-deck only with no internal amplification or speakers. Two GX heads were used, a combined record/playback head and an erase head.
Equalization was set to the NAB curve and frequency response was 30 – 25kHz 3db using low-noise tape. 29 transistors and 15 diodes were used in the all solid-state design.
