Description

Introduced in 1970, the
X-5000 was a three-head (erase, crossfield bias and record/play combination
head) quarter-track stereo tape deck with a seven inch reel capacity.
The unit featured a single hysteresis synchronous two-speed motor which
gave three tape speeds (7½ , 3¾ & 1
ips) in conjunction with a removable capstan sleeve and an optional fourth
speed (15 ips) was available by means of a larger capstan sleeve and smaller
pinch roller set.
Features included the Akai crossfield bias system, a three mode equaliser
switch, all silicon transistor/IC 4 watt RMS per channel amplifier, two
7 x 5 in speakers, automatic shut-off and two microphone and line inputs.
Available in two versions, W (wood finish) and L (wood covered in leatherette)
this unit was not sold in large quantities and is seldom seen nowadays.
