These dbx Noise reduction units were used with a variety of Reel to Reel machines, including 4, 8 and 16 Track Teac/Tascam machines along with the gamut of 2 Track Consumer decks.   They were very effective at improving headroom and surpressing  tape noise without having to record at very high levels.

This unit is in VG condition overall, no scratches to the front panel, and just a few imperfections along the top edge of the front trim.  It uses Gold plated RCA Phono plug connections on the rear panel.   Suitable for international use (110/220  50/60 Hz).
