Additional Details


The RS-736US was also sold by National/Panasonic before they transferred their audio line to the Technics name.
It was a high-quality quarter-track stereo tape deck with three heads, a high speed of 15 ips (with capstan change), separate record/playback circuitry, equalisation for normal or low-noise tapes, echo and sound-on-sound functions and track to track transfer switches.
The deck featured Technics’ exclusive HPF (Hot-Press Ferrite) record and playback heads which, Technics claimed, provided a 25% wider frequency range and about 200 times longer life than ordinary heads.
Maximum reel size was 7″
Price when new in the USA was $329.95
