A 4 track, 3 channel professional tape deck, dual speed, very good condition. With DOLBY NR.
This is a professional rack mount 2 speed cassette deck that uses a 4 track, 3 channel format (Left, Right and Cue channels). The heads and transport are in very good condition, and all tape functions work smoothly.
This machine has a new capstan belt, has been cleaned, lubricated and tested. All of the mechanical and electronic functions are working fine. The unit was tested using Maxell XLII-S CrO2 stock. Record and PB levels were calibrated according to the manual. Recalibration/reBiasing for user tape is recommended.
Cosmetics are Very Good, with some wear on the paint along the front edge of the top cover, and the rack ears. All of the lamps and Meters work well.
