I just got my Teac X-2000R reel to reel on Thursday. Man is that thing sweet! You have GOT to get a hold of one of these. It will fit in nicely along side your A-3340.
And like I also told you, you got to start using those 10" reels!!!!! One 10 inch reel with 3600' of tape will last 96 minutes in one direction! And if you use the X-2000R's reverse feature, then you get 192 minutes, or 3 hours and 12 minutes total at 7 1/2 IPS.
And double those times if you use 3 3/4 IPS.
As soon as I can get a picture of mine, I'll post it, but it's identical to this one:
It goes rather nicely with my other X-1000R's (one of which is now put away) and my Akai GX-635.
My total now is 4 machines:
1 Teac X-2000R
2 Teac X-1000R-both black face models (I used to have three, but I sold one to buy the X-2000R)
1 Akai GX-635 (the rare charcoal grey version. Simply a gorgeous deck)
I really wish someone would bring these babies back into production. Think of what Teac could put out now!!!
Anyone else have a reel to reel and has been quiet about it? Anyone else think they are cool?
