Additional Details


A two speed (3¾ & 7½ ips), three head tape deck with a 10½ ” reel capability, closed loop dual capstan tape drive which reduced wow & flutter to a minimum, logic controlled transport functions which permitted the feather-touch control buttons to be operated in any sequence, any time without spilling or damaging tape, an AC servo control capstan motor and an eight-pole induction motor for each of the two reels.

Other features included a record equalization switch for maximum record/playback characteristics with either normal or special tapes, mic attenuators to eliminate distortion when the microphone pre-amp stages were overdriven and a tape/source monitoring switch to take full advantage of the separate Ferrite and Ferrite record and playback heads.
