In many ways, one of the more inspired Teac offerings of the mid-late 70s, this recorder was very similar to the A 4300 but had a 10½ inch reel capacity. The engineering in this deck showed greater levels of inspiration than they would be offering a few years later.
The 6300 is a single direction record, bi-directional playback deck with four heads and three motors. Other features included an index counter repeat for replaying a particular section automatically, bias and EQ switches for normal or high-output/low noise tape and record lock-out switches and dual-scale VU meters. An interesting touch were guide rings on the controls which enabled settings to be marked for later reference.
