Description

A solid state, three speed (7½ , 3¾ and 1 7/8ips), quarter-track stereo tape recorder with a seven inch maximum reel capacity. A single motor and two heads were incorporated into this by now very familiar looking seventies Japanese domestic machine.
The RD-708 had separate bass and treble controls (playback only) and two satellite speaker units which clipped onto the cabinet to form a lid when not in use (see right). Each of these units contained a 6¼ . inch woofer and a 2¼ . inch tweeter which were driven by the internal 3 watts per channel amplifier.
