Additional Details


As the X-10M was a consumer deck (not a Tascam) and not top-of-the-line (X-2000M) combine that with the fact that quarter track was selling 9/10 against half track at the time and we have a real rarity here. Very few produced and sold. Likely less than the other rarities of this Teac lineup, the X-20R & X-1000M (Japan). A closed loop dual capstan system with three 1/2 Track heads delivered a very respectable 30Hz-30kHz at 15ips. A 5mm thick front panel holds a heavy-weight motor and flywheel securely. NAB-BTS equalization.

Another rarity that it seems was only available in Japan was the X-1000M
