Description

The Sony TC-R6 was released one year earlier in Japan, than the identical Sony TC-765 which was designated for the North American market.  It was a 3 head, quarter-track, consumer version of the semi-professional half-track TC-R7-2 and offered 3 3/4 – 71/2 ips.

A very reliable machine that was not packed with a lot of features but all the essentials to do some great home recording.
