The tapesonic machines share some similarities with Crown and Magnecord and it would seem that the company that only made custom recorders, was well aware of the strong points of their competitors.
What we hear is that if you wanted one of these tape recorders, ideally you would visit them in New York City and leave a deposit after you made decisions about quarter track half track and many other possibilities for a custom tape recorder.
Approximately six month later the machine would be delivered. These are very reliable machines that with some upgrades will rival pretty much anything made in the US, not to mention other countries but we don’t want to stretch it too much here!
Quite rare and Highly recommended if you can find one.
