Description

This
was the machine that finally replaced the ageing 350 series in January
1967.
A fully solid-state, three motor, three head
recorder in either single, dual (pictured) track or up to 8 channels on
one-inch tape.
The AG 440 was a two speed machine with either
15 & 7½ ips or 7½ & 3¾ ips options, had a 10½
inch reel capacity and was available in a console model as pictured here
or in a portable, two-package set.
Synchronous-servo capstan motor drive was
employed.
This was THE mastering machine of the late
1960s – mid 1970’s
“… a new generation of the 350 and 351
Series recorders, the most widely used professional audio recorder / reproducers
ever built.” (according to Ampex!)
