The X-2000 evolved from the X-1000R, with improvements in almost every aspect. It is one of the better recorders made by Teac and is highly sought after on the second hand market, fetching up to $1000 or more for mint condition examples.
Three models/variants were produced:

X-2000: quarter-track, three heads and three motors. 7½ ips and 3¾ ips.
X-2000R: as above but with six heads for bi-directional record/playback.
X-2000M: half track stereo, 15 and 7½ ips – ‘M’ standing for ‘Master’.

Features included inbuilt dbx noise reduction system, Cobalt heads, EE tape compatibility, a computer driven COMPUMATIC search system: 5 digit real time length counter, automatic search counter or cue position, block repeat, remote control, record mute and synchro copy. The unit was available in black or silver.
