Description

The Teac 505R was a two-speed, quarter-track stereo/mono semi-professional tape deck costing £300 (Australian) when sold with matched external amplifiers and speakers.
Fitted with three hysteresis-synchronous motors
to give individual drive to the capstan, rewind and take-up functions, it also had auto-reverse playback. Twin VU meters, tape counter and tape-break switch were also standard features. Berlant/Concertone also made a model 505 which was almost identical to the Teac 505R and in fact, utilised the Teac transport.
