Description

The Teac X-300 was the follow up to the short lived X-3, which had a two-year production cycle.  These were the smallest of the final X series produced by Teac.  This one had a long production run into the early 90s. An auto reverse version, the X-300R was available as well.  A good-looking and excellent sounding machine for the money, it surely was the final hurrah for consumer reel to reel tape recorders, which were pretty much extinct in the early 90s.
