Additional Details


With the introduction of the QT 6600, Pioneer’s total system of four-channel stereo (quadraphonic)
was now complete.
The QT 6600 (which was based on the stereo T-6600) was a two speed (7½ and 3¾ ips) tape deck featuring five heads, a 7″ maximum reel capacity and a single motor with a belt-drive mechanism that combined
simplicity with a high level of precision design and stability.
This was quite an affordable quadraphonic deck, retailing for $600 in the US and $780.00 in Australia
in 1971 (information from the 1974 Australian Hi-Fi Stereo Buyer’s Guide)
