The series 9200 XD was developed from the series 9000X and featured three motors, four heads, three speeds and the crossfield recording technique. It was, apart from the Dolby system, very similar to its predecessor.
Another model, the 9100 X, was identical to the 9200 XD but without the Dolby system.
Other features included:
Sound-on-sound. edit/cue enabled listening to the tape when fast winding/rewinding.
remote control available and line/mic mixing.
The 9200 XD was available in either half or quarter-track versions and optional accessories included suitcase, dust cover and brackets for 19″ rack mounting.
The 9200 and the 10XD used early logic ICs which are prone to failure. Apparently these can be found in the Russian market if you know about ICs and can cross-reference them.
