Additional Details


A three speed, 3 motor recorder
using the popular Collaro Studio
deck, the REPS R10 was available as a half-track or quarter-track mono
The REPS company re-finished the moving parts of the Collaro deck to
a high specification, thus reducing wow & flutter to a minimum and
fitted Bogen heads. (The Collaro Studio deck was normally fitted with
two heads, space being available for a third).
All REPS recorders left the South Acton factory with a 2-year guarantee.
