Description

The A 2340SX was the little brother to the famous A 3340S, a discrete 4 channel (quadraphonic) deck that could record and play discrete 4 channel tapes, 2 channel stereophonic tapes and 4 channel monophonic tapes. Like the A 3340S, Simul-Sync heads were used, enabling sync-recording on separate channels plus a CUE lever to help locate the exact position of material on the tape for editing, re-recording or dubbing. Unlike its big brother which could accomodate 10½ ” reels, this recorder could only handle the 7″ variety. This was an improved version of the earlier A 2340. Priced at around $800 in 1978.
