Additional Details


The final hurrah and top-of-the-line, performance wise of all the X series tape recorders from Teac. The M stands for mastering and with half track specifications like this the X-2000M was ready for business in the studio. Some members report that for a variety of reasons the X 1000 series of tape recorders has proven to be the more reliable with the test of time. Others will report that the 2000s, with more durable heads, if well-maintained, are still the preference. Not many of these M’s sold back in the day as the choices for half track recorders for studio purposes would have included Tascam of course and many other solid contenders. This was merely a top-of-the-line consumer machine. If you had the choice, would you take the lower end of an upper-level product line or the higher end of a lower end product line? Always a worthwhile consideration.
