The 4010 S was a four-head, two speed (3¾ & 7½ ips) tape deck with a 7″ reel capacity and three separate motors. Like many of the late 60’s Japanese tape decks it was equipped with an auto-reverse functionality (playback only). Controls were fairly spartan and consisted of two large VU meters, microphone and line input level controls and a line-output level control. Other features included tape tension control, input mixing and tape monitoring (selectable from either the playback head during recording or the source).
