SHIPPED TO BILL IN TEXAS

 Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit.

 We have completely gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit.

 All Power supply outputs tested and verified at spec.

 Transport mechanisms disassembled, cleaned, lubed w/ 'SuperLube', silicone based gel and light machine oil as necessary and reassembled including PR Pivot Arm mechanism.



 Tape Tension arms disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, and had fresh 500,000 grade silicone lube gel applied

 Tape Left Tension arm had extra spring tension added for better performance on tape handling

 Capstan flywheel removed, cleaned bushings and axels cleaned and re-lubed. Flywheel surface burnished.

 Capstan cleaned and burnished in drill press while removed

 pinch-roller mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed.

 Rubber pinch roller removed, re-surfaced, conditioned and re-installed with fresh lubricant.

 Impedance roller had both its end bearings removed and new ones pressed in for silent tape transportation.

 Fresh, new 'Main' / Capstan belt (#42-3005) installed as original belt was 'melted' back to goo.

 Fresh, new counter belt (#048) installed.

 Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

 Brakes adjusted on fast wind modes also (optimized for 7" & 10.5" tape.)

 Back tension checked / adjusted on both reel motors.

 All three motors test perfectly. Following above adjustments, Reel Start and Stop tested at beginning, middle and end of 7" & 10.5" tapes (VERY QUICK 'FAST WIND' ON THIS ONE)

 Both spindles in perfect alignment w/ no 'run-out' at any speed.

 Both spindle-locks hold tightly.

 We also checked / adjusted the reel table heights.

 Heads in great shape as well, with many years of performance left in them (see photos)

 Removed and burnished COMMONLY INTERMITTENT contacts on channel Circuit Boards and re-seated. Adjusted pin contacts for better connections. Was discovered that these connectors was the source of channel intermittence.

 All meter lamps working great as theyre very low current draw and will likely last decades more.

 All 'internal' / PC mounted pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function

 All 'User' pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function


 Playback and Record Head alignment / azimuth was adjusted for peak performance with factory test tone tape and oscilloscope.

 We adjusted the VU meters mechanically for correct 'resting position' and electronically w/ factory test tone tapes, as well as the internal playback, Monitor levels, and record levels utilizing STL test / alignment tapes.

    


 We adjusted the Bias for great sound with Ampex GM-456 tape.

 Speed tested to 99.9% accuracy following refurb (meaning that our 'verified' 1000Hz accuracy using a 1000 Hz STL test tape.  (test tape now plays back at 1001 when warmed up).


 
 Adjusted to record AMAZINGLY WELL at 0dB both with full bandwidth Pink-Noise, then 1kHz test and in 'Real World' use w/ 'mixed DDD CD' signals. (Tested with Maxell UDXL Tape and Ampex GM-456 (bias set for Ampex GM-456).

 Floor noise measured at >-60dBm w/ blank tape, L&R

 Following refurb / service mechanicals tested for 'play torque' at beginning and end of largest size reels, as well as 'Fast wind torque' and 'braking tension' in both FF and REW, at beginning, middle and end of tapes. In other words, every combination of transport function was tested and passed.

 This TEAC / TASCAM 40-4 functions, plays, and records VERY WELL (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy).  (Total time investment in refurb / testing ~ 18 hours).

This is an amazing deck for both recording or playback, again of Multi-Track / Four-Track / Four-Channel / Stereo / Quadraphonic / Mono' tapes for speeds of 7.5ips or 15ips. Following refurbishment, the deck looks and works great and sounds amazing!!! 

The encore to the TEAC / A-3440, the TEAC / TASCAM 40-4 Multi-Track / Four-Track / Four-Channel / Stereo / Quadraphonic / Mono (Yep, that pretty much covers everything but 'half-track') Reel to Reel tape deck. Ready to GO! We've had this deck in our warehouse for years, waiting for a 'senior tech' who was qualified to the task of bringing such a deck back to life CORRECTLY. One of a recent few, we've had make it through satisfactorily in 24+ years of dealing in vintage audio.

This is the deck that most folks want for their home studio to record 'raw tracks' on. For examples; you could lay down bass and drums on one track, then rhythm guitar on the next track, lead guitar on track 3 and vocals on track 4. Or you can lay down tracks 2-4, then bounce them to track 1 and have 2, 3 & 4 free again. Or you can records 'heads-up' (all four tracks at once), then mix those down later. Of course, you can record 'normal stereo' tapes, or you can record 4 separate mono tracks if you're trying to conserve tape. Or, Or, Or...

 Following our extensive refurb / bench time it's now an AMAZING performer (Check the 'recording test results' above and the 'specs' in text below). If you're looking for a reel to reel deck to "actually use" here you go. Only about 25% of the used Reel decks out there can be "practically" restored to working order. This one made it through with flying colors after about 18 hours of bench time.

The deck tests great! Cosmetically it's in great condition. Cosmetic issues worth mentioning would be some light scuffs on the face panel, between the reel tables and a few, typical nicks to the wood grain side panes, and a small nick to the head cover (see photos above).

As stated earlier we have EXTENSIVELY gone through it cleaning heads and all else, lubing, adjusting, reconditioning pinch rollers and other rubber parts, demagnetizing heads and entire transport and testing everything. Tape speed tested and resulted in 99.9% accuracy using a 1000 Hz STL test tape. Plays and records Exceptionally well (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed CD material and CD test tones looking for correct head Azimuth, tape speed accuracy and making test recordings. Again, check the 'test results' listed above). Pinch rollers and heads all in GREAT condition!!!

Our technician has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through and 'Certified' this unit which involves complete removal and disassembly of the entire transport (not an easy task on this deck), cleaning inside and out, DISASSEMBLING, cleaning and re-lubricating all internal mechanisms and the balance of efforts listed below.


Heads inspected for excessive wear (obviously we do this 'early on' as 'excessive' wear will usually negate any further restoration work).

Head rotating gear inspected with a jewelers loop prior to starting any restoration work, and found to be 'hairline' crack free.

'reel drive' tire reconditioned for years of trouble-free service.

All new internal Drive and Counter belts replaced for years of trouble-free service.

Rubber pinch roller has been reconditioned

Capstan burnished

Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

Head alignment and azimuth at 125Hz, 1kHz and 10kHz adjusted for BOTH directions for 'peak performance' with O-Scope and w/ STL and TEAC MTT-257H calibration / alignment tapes. Both channels now even output.

All internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function.

Both spindles in perfect alignment.

FF, REW, & Play transport functions all test perfectly and controls tested for 'positive / accurate' responsive.

Eject door operates smoothly.

Tape Counter Function tested

Dolby B & C NR circuits / function tested

'Memory / Zero Return' function tested

Meters adjusted to even zero with symmetric with Volt meter, O-Scope and w/ STL and TEAC MTT-257H calibration / alignment tapes. Both channels now even output.

Both Internal playback amplifier channels adjusted with Volt meter, O-Scope and w/ STL and TEAC MTT-257H calibration / alignment tapes. Both channels now even output.

Playback meters zero with factory test tone tape.

Speed adjusted to 100% accuracy BOTH directions, with 1kHz factory calibration tape (meaning 1kHz calibration tape plays back at 1000Hz +/- 1Hz) (VERY difficult to do on this deck by the way)


Cosmetics are not great, with numerous 'battle scars', but makes up for that in performance.

Plays perfectly and after adjustment, records AMAZINGLY well at 0dB! on Maxell UDXL-II tapes and +1dB on Maxell UR / Normal Bias tapes. (Following the extensive restoration, we did 'test recordings' of a 'ddd' CD on 6 tapes; Sony Normal Bias, Fuji Normal Bias, TDK Normal Bias, Maxell Normal Bias, TDK 'SA' High Bias, and Maxell 'XL-II' High Bias. We found that for Normal and High Bias, of those tapes tested, both the TDK and "Maxells" performed VERY well on this particular deck. The Maxell's did however much 'outshine' the TDK's for being able to 'over saturate' on the levels. While doing the test recording's, it became apparent that the recorded sound was quite remarkable.
Total technician time to restore 14+ HOURS

Plays perfectly and after adjustment, records AMAZINGLY well at -1dB! on Maxell UDXL-II tapes and -.5dB on Maxell UR / Normal Bias tapes (but 'top end' will not be as good as on CrO2).

Capstan burnished

NEW, 'reel drive' tire installed for trouble-free service. (These are actually much more important to replace on this deck (and most) than the belts. Without these, the deck won't fast wind very well, and will likely 'eat tapes' as the 'take-up' reel won't turn properly)

Great deck for doing your tape transfers if your tapes were recorded with no NR or with "Dolby B" or for making some awesome 'new' recordings or 'mix tapes' (hey, it's 'the thing' again). This deck is a pleasure to use, and has a great 'feel' due to it's size and transport function. As far as cosmetics, it's BEAUTIFUL. Was taken very good care of before it came to us, and is even more astounding now. Very impressive looking deck.

Great for transferring your no NR or Dolby B NR encoded tape collection to CD, Hard-drive or MP3 especially with the 'Tape EQ' selector for 'fine tuning' older tapes. Built very well! Looks like new, works perfectly and sounds fabulous.
Due to it's size, overall feel, the 'input controls' and the 'transport control' this deck really is a blast to use. Comes with an 'e-copy / pdf download' of the TEAC A-510 / A-500 cassette tape deck service manual if the purchaser desires. Measures 18.6" wide x 13.5" deep x 7.25" tall and weighs a VERY HEAVY 24 lbs unpacked. Just in-case you 'too casually' read past that last little bit,
IT'S A TWENTY-FOUR POUND CASSETTE DECK!

Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty.

SHIPPED TO TIM IN ALABAMA

Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit.

 We have completely and extensively gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit.

 Entire transport was disassembled down to the chassis, and every mechanical part was disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and reassembled

 Tape Tension arms disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, and their springs adjusted and had fresh 300,000 grade silicone lube gel applied

 pinch-roller mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed,

 PR mechanism solenoid mounts adjusted

 Capstans / flywheels removed, bushings and axels cleaned and re-lubed (w/ #80-90) and flywheels burnished

 Capstan motor pulley burnished

 Capstan cleaned and burnished

 Capstan motor lubed (very quiet now)

 Rubber pinch roller removed and re-conditioned (removed multiple 'capstan burns / marks')

 Pinch roller pressure adjusted

 New MAIN drive belt sourced and installed (#42-745)

 Brand new counter belt installed (#152)

 Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

 Brake bands / linings re-attached

 Brakes adjusted on fast wind modes also (optimized for 7" reels.)

 Back tension adjusted on both reel motors.

 All three motors test perfectly. Following above adjustments, Reel Start and Stop tested at beginning, middle and end of 7" reels.

 Internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function (initially, of course, had typical static / noise which is to be expected in an 'un-serviced' deck after 45+ years).

 RCA I/O jacks cleaned / burnished

 EOT / Auto-Stop mechanism had magnet re-attached, and spring tension re-adjusted for more consistent tape motion without prematurely going into 'Auto-Stop' mode

 External / User adjustable pots, switches and controls cleaned on the playback / record amp and tested for noise-free function

 We adjusted the VU meters mechanically and electronically w/ factory test tone tapes, as well as the internal playback levels for both directions independently and record levels.

 We adjusted the output, 'Minimum Input', 'Specified Input', 'Record Level' and 'Bias' all to spec, then further adjusted 'Bias' for Ampex GM-456

 Both spindles in perfect alignment.

 We also adjusted the reel table heights.

 Heads in great shape as well, with many years of performance left in them

 Playback and Record Head alignment / azimuth was adjusted for peak performance with factory test tone tape and oscilloscope.

 Speed tested to 99.7% accuracy following refurb (meaning that our 'verified' 1000Hz test tape now plays back at 1003Hz +/- 1Hz).
 
 Adjusted to record VERY WELL. Biased for *Ampex GM 456 studio tape with the following results:
1kHz recorded @ 0dB resulted in PB @ L= -1 dB & R= 0dB
White Noise recorded @ 0dB resulted in PB @ L= -2 dB & R= 0dB

'Real World', DDD CD recorded at 0 = ~ -2dB

* We also had great results with Maxell UD XL (Gold Box) tape as well

 WoW & Flutter are minimal, especially at 'higher' speed.

 Floor noise measured at >-60dB w/ blank tape, L&R

 This TEAC A-1200U functions, plays, and records VERY WELL (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy).  (Total time investment in refurb / testing ~13.5 hours).

Face is beautiful, brushed, Stainless Steel and case is in great condition. Deck looks and works great! 

Following mechanical / electronic refurb, entire unit was cosmetically detailed inside and out. Face is made of beautiful brushed Stainless Steel and is dent free and in great condition. Cabinet covered in real Walnut wood veneer, is in great condition and just had a fresh coat of lemon oil. Deck looks and sound great!

HEY, WHY ALL THE 'X'd' OUT / OMITTED SPECS AND TEXT?
 

This is the first Teac A-1500 that has made it through restoration we have had in 24 years
(only second we've ever had, but the first one had too much head wear to start restoration). Great machine for playback / archiving your tapes to CD or Hard Drive or for recording new tapes. This is a beautiful deck. About the only cosmetic issues worth mentioning are some veneer chips / flaking on the lower edge of the wood veneer case (we have re-attached this down so shouldn't get any worse, and the head cover has been changed at some point to a "1200U" (probably someone misplaced the original, and could only find a 1200 cover at the time). There's also a few, numerous light striations on the face plate, and a small ding on the lower, front edge of the cabinet / case (see photos above).   Performs incredibly well following refurbishing. Face plates,  knobs and all cosmetics fabulous! Measures 17" wide x 15.5" tall x 10" (from tip of back feet-tip of hubs) deep and weighs 41 lbs unpacked.

 Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit.

 
We have completely and extensively gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit.

 Entire transport was disassembled down to the chassis, and every mechanical part was disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and reassembled including; Both Tape Lifters, Pinch Roller Pivot Arm, EOT Sensor Arm, Left Tape Tension arm mechanism, Capstan Motor (clean and re-lube), Capstan and flywheel shaft removed cleaned / re-lubed (pretty much every moving part)

 Tape Tension arms disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, and their springs adjusted




 Originally 'Frozen' pinch-roller mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed,

 Capstan / flywheels removed, bushings and axels cleaned and re-lubed and flywheels burnished

 Capstan burnished

  Rubber pinch roller removed and re-conditioned



 MAIN drive belt reconditioned and re-installed

 Brand new counter belt, #152 installed (FYI; requires removal of TU reel table trim, Top front Trim, and dismounting of Power Transformer)

 Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

 Brakes adjusted on fast wind modes at ALL points thru a tape. It's a fine line between having the brakes actuate with too much tension, 'abruptly' stopping the tape (risking stretching / breaking of tape) or too loose (allows tape to 'dump'). (VERY difficult to do on this series). Brakes optimized for 7" reels.

 Re-lubed all 3 motors (all have 'oil tubes')

 Fabricated new 'oil slinger' for capstan shaft

 Back tension adjusted on both reel motors.

 All three motors test perfectly. Following above adjustments, Reel Start and Stop tested at beginning, middle and end of 7" tapes

 Internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function (initially, of course, had typical static / noise which is to be expected in an 'un-serviced' deck after 35+ years).

 Cleaned all 'user' slide switches and control pots

 Checked / replaced VU meter lamps / bulbs

 We adjusted all  four VU meters mechanically and electronically w/ factory test tone tapes, as well as the internal playback levels for both directions independently and record levels.

 Replaced ALL 4 'spark arrestors' (0.1mfd in series w/ 120Ω resistor)




 Both spindles in perfect alignment.

 We also adjusted the reel table heights for average reel flanges.

 Heads in great shape as well, with many years of performance left in them.

 Playback and Record Head alignment / azimuth was adjusted for peak performance with factory test tone tape and oscilloscope.

 Entire deck detailed inside and out cosmetically




 Speed tested to 99.4% accuracy following refurb (meaning that our 'verified' 1000Hz test tape now plays back at 1006Hz).

 Adjusted to record VERY WELL. Biased for Ampex GM 456 studio tape with the following results w/ Output control ~"2:00 PM":
1kHz recorded @ 0dB resulted in PB @ 0dB


 'Real World, DDD CD recorded @ zero dB = PB of zero dB! (w/ GM456).

 
Floor noise measured at >-60dB w/ blank tape, L&R

 This Teac A-2340R functions, plays, and records VERY WELL (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy).

Face is beautiful, brushed, Stainless Steel and case is in LIKE NEW condition.

Tape speed tested and resulted in 99.4% accuracy using a 1000 Hz test tape. Plays and records Exceptionally well (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed CD material and CD test tones looking for correct head Azimuth, tape speed accuracy and making test recordings). Pinch rollers and heads all in GREAT condition!!! Face is made of beautiful, brushed, stainless steel and looks great. Very clean and looks near new. Unit looks GREAT!

  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit.

  We have completely and extensively gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit.

 Entire transport was disassembled down to the chassis, and every mechanical part was disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and reassembled

 Replaced one of the 'safety switches' on the tape tension arms with original / OEM parts (reversing a 'rigged repair' from a previous tech)

 Tape Tension arms disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, and their springs adjusted and had fresh 500,000 grade silicone lube gel applied

 pinch-roller mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed,

 PR mechanism solenoid mounts adjusted

 Capstans / flywheels removed, bushings and axels cleaned and re-lubed and flywheels burnished

 Capstan motor pulley burnished

 Capstans burnished

 Rubber pinch roller removed and re-conditioned

 New MAIN drive belt sourced and installed

 Brand new counter belt installed

 Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

 Brakes adjusted on fast wind modes also (optimized for 7" & 10.5" tape.)

 Back tension adjusted on both reel motors.

 All three motors test perfectly. Following above adjustments, Reel Start and Stop tested at beginning, middle and end of 7" & 10.5" tapes

 Internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function (initially, of course, had typical static / noise which is to be expected in an 'un-serviced' deck after 35+ years).

 We adjusted the VU meters mechanically and electronically w/ factory test tone tapes, as well as the internal playback levels for both directions independently and record levels.

 Both spindles in perfect alignment.

 We also adjusted the reel table heights.

 Heads in great shape as well, with many years of performance left in them

 Playback and Record Head alignment / azimuth was adjusted for peak performance with factory test tone tape and oscilloscope.

 Speed tested to 99.4% accuracy following refurb (meaning that our 'verified' 1000Hz test tape now plays back at 1006Hz).
 
 Adjusted to record @ a fairly respectable -7dB @ 1kHz on normal bias tape and ~ -7dB on 'High Bias'

 Floor noise measured at >-60dB w/ blank tape, L&R

 This TEAC A-3300SX functions, plays, and records VERY WELL (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy).  (Total time investment in refurb / testing ~ 14.5 hours).

Face is beautiful, brushed, Stainless Steel and case is in great condition. Only cosmetic issues worth mentioning are 'smuges' on the stainless steel face plate (see photos above). Deck looks and works great! 

The TEAC A-3300SX Stereo Reel to Reel tape deck. Ready to GO! This is one of the few reel to reel decks we get in that make it to our finished page. Great performer. If you're looking for a reel to reel deck to "actually use" here you go. Only about 25 % of the used Reel decks out there can be "practically" restored to working order. This one made it through with flying colors after about 14hours of bench time.

As stated earlier we have completely gone through it cleaning heads and all else, lubing, adjusting, reconditioning pinch rollers and other rubber parts, demagnetizing heads and entire transport and testing everything. Tape speed tested and resulted in 99.9% accuracy using a 1000 Hz test tape. Plays and records Exceptionally well (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed CD material and CD test tones looking for correct head Azimuth, tape speed accuracy and making test recordings). Pinch rollers and heads all in GREAT condition!!! Face is made of beautiful, brushed, stainless steel and looks great. Very clean and looks near new. Unit looks GREAT!

Circa 1978
SOLD 2/17/19
SHIPPED TO ROD IN NEW YORK

 Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit.

 We have completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit (and this was a BIG project to do 'CORRECTLY' as it's a VERY difficult to service deck).

 Faulty AC Power switch replaced.

 'Tape Lifter' mechanism disassembled, cleaned, lubed w/ 'SuperLube', silicone based gel and reassembled.

 Transport mechanisms disassembled, cleaned, lubed w/ 'SuperLube', silicone based gel and light machine oil as necessary and reassembled including PR Pivot Arm mechanism.


 Tape Tension arms disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, and their springs adjusted and had fresh 500,000 grade silicone lube gel applied.

 Capstan removed, cleaned and burnished 

 Capstan flywheel removed, cleaned bushings and axels cleaned and re-lubed. Flywheel surface burnished.

 pinch-roller mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed.

 Rubber pinch rollers removed, re-surfaced, conditioned and re-installed with fresh lubricant.

 Fresh, new 'Main' / Capstan belt installed as original belt was 'melted' back to goo.

 Fresh, new counter belt installed.

 Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

 Brakes adjusted on fast wind modes also (optimized for 7" & 10.5" tape.)

 Back tension checked / adjusted on both reel motors.

 All three motors test perfectly. Following above adjustments, Reel Start and Stop tested at beginning, middle and end of 7" & 10.5" tapes (VERY QUICK 'FAST WIND' ON THIS ONE)

 All 'internal' / PC mounted pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function

 All 'User' pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function

 Removed and burnished COMMONLY INTERMITTENT contacts on channel Circuit Boards and re-seated. Adjusted pin contacts for better connections. Was discovered that these connectors was the source of channel intermittence.

 Hairline fracture in Channel #2 CB trace near input slide switch discovered and repaired. This was causing occasional intermittency in PB signal.

 All meter lamps replaced w/ LED's. Very Bright! (This is an EXTENSIVE project on the 3440. Tech notes: must be done from rear. ONLY way to access meter for channel #4 is to remove motherboard, and detach bottom pre-amp chassis to allow hardware access. Changing to LED causes 'un-loading' of PB amplitude at pre-amp. Adequate load resistors determined and installed to maintain correct PB output. Required several hours.)
 
         

 All 7 power supply outputs tested and verified at spec from 2.5VAC to 42VAC.

 Stop switch had 'hairline' fracture in hinge mechanism that required inordinate amount of time to fabricate new one. This is a common issue on the A-3440 that most folks don't realize is wrong...for a while.

 We adjusted the VU meters mechanically for correct 'resting position' and electronically utilizing "STL" test / alignment tapes, as well as the internal playback and record levels.

 Both spindles in perfect alignment w/ no 'run-out' at any speed.

 Both spindle-locks hold tightly.

 We also checked / adjusted the reel table heights.

 Heads in great shape as well, with many years of performance left in them

 Playback and Record Head alignment / azimuth was adjusted for peak performance utilizing "STL" test / alignment tapes and oscilloscope.

 Speed tested to 100% accuracy following refurb (meaning that our 'verified' 1000Hz test tape now plays back at 1000 +/- 1Hz utilizing "STL" test / alignment tapes).
 
 Internal Playback & Record levels adjusted, as well as 'Meter' and 'Bias'


 Adjusted to record AMAZINGLY WELL at 0dB both with full bandwidth Pink-Noise, then 1kHz test and in 'Real World' use w/ 'mixed DDD CD' signals. (Tested with Maxell UDXL Tape and Ampex GM-456 (bias set for Ampex GM-456).

 Floor noise measured at >-60dBm w/ blank tape, L&R

 Following refurb / service mechanicals tested for 'play torque' at beginning and end of largest size reels, as well as 'Fast wind torque' and 'braking tension' in both FF and REW, at beginning, middle and end of tapes. In other words, every combination of transport function was tested and passed.

 This TEAC A-3440 functions, plays, and records VERY WELL (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy).  (Total time investment in refurb / testing ~ 60++ hours).

This is an amazing deck for both recording or playback, again of 4-Track Mono / Stereo' or quadraphnic tapes for speeds of 7.5ips or 15ips. Following refurbishment, the deck looks and works great and sounds amazing!!

The VERY sought after and FAMOUS, TEAC A-3440 Multi-Track / Four-Track / Four-Channel...

. Ready to GO! We've had this deck in our warehouse for years, waiting for a 'senior tech' who was qualified to the task of bringing such a deck back to life CORRECTLY. First one of these we've had make it through satisfactorily in 24+ years of dealing in vintage audio.

This is the deck that most folks want for their...


HEY, WHY ALL THE 'X'd' OUT / OMITTED SPECS AND TEXT?

  


 Following our extensive refurb / bench time it's now an AMAZING performer (Check the 'recording test results' above and the 'specs' in text below). If you're looking for a reel to reel deck to "actually use" here you go. Only about 25% of the used Reel decks out there can be "practically" restored to working order. This one made it through with flying colors after about 60++ hours of bench time.

The deck tests great! Cosmetically it's in great condition,
with a few minor chips / dings to the real wood veneer side panels, and a small chip on the head cover, scratch on the main panel, and wear to the left tension arm.  (see separate photo collage above). Functions and sounds great ! Will play up to 10.5" reels.

TEAC A-3440 Features include:

- Multi-Track / 4-Track / 4...

HEY, WHY ALL THE 'X'd' OUT / OMITTED SPECS AND TEXT?

  

- Accessory connectors for optional TEAC RC-70 Remote control (not included, nor currently available)


As stated earlier we have EXTENSIVELY gone through it cleaning heads and all else, lubing, adjusting, reconditioning pinch rollers and other rubber parts, demagnetizing heads and entire transport and testing everything. Additionally the meter lamps were changed to LED's and multiple repairs completed, some whose symptoms only showed up during our exhaustive testing procedures (may not have shown up on other decks until the user tried the 'magical combination' of functions sometime down the road. Just food for thought on supposedly 'serviced' units).

Tape speed tested and resulted in 100% accuracy using a 1000 Hz test tape. Plays and records Exceptionally well (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed CD material and CD test tones looking for correct head Azimuth, tape speed accuracy and making test recordings. Again, check the 'test results' listed above). Pinch rollers and heads all in GREAT condition!!!



HEY, WHY ALL THE 'X'd' OUT / OMITTED SPECS AND TEXT?

  

This is a highly sought after deck and now, following the extensive service, with UNBELIEVABLE PERFORMANCE.
Again, as mentioned earlier, cosmetically it's in good condition, with a few minor chips / dings to the real wood veneer side panels, and a small chip on the head cover, scratch on the main panel, and wear to the left tension arm. (see separate photo collage above).
 
This was TEACS most asked for 'Musicians' deck, but since it also does standard 'Stereo' playback, Mono and even Quadraphonic (Quadriphonic) playback, it's about as versatile as you can get.
All of our restored / refurbished reel to reel decks come with a 7", plastic take-up reel, a 'known good' 7" tape for initial testing of playback, and a 7" tape you can record onto, all to assist you in becoming familiar with the operation / function of your new reel to reel tape deck.
 Comes with an 'e-copy' / pdf download of the TEAC A-3440 owners / operations manual, & service manual if purchaser so desires. Also includes the RCA jumpers for the back panel shown in photos. Measures 17.5" wide x 20.5" tall x 10" (from tip of back feet-tip of hubs) deep and weighs a HEAVY 50+ lbs unpacked. Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty.

SHIPPED TO NEW YORK

 
 We have completely gone through this unit. Entire transport was disassembled down to the chassis, and every mechanical part was cleaned of all old, varnished grease and oils (as ALL late 60's to mid 70's tape decks need), re-lubed and reassembled. Pinch Roller swing arm removed, disassembled and re-lubed as well as the brake arms, tape tension arms, tape lifter mechanism, tape counter and pretty much anything else that moves. Tape tension magnet reattached. Both brake pads / shoes re-glued. Brakes adjusted on fast wind modes also. Motor 'back tension' resistors adjusted for both directions of play and for both directions of 'fast wind' (checked at multiple points on tape). All three motors re-lubed. All internal pots and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function. Both spindles in perfect alignment. We also adjusted the reel table heights. Both Main Drive belt and Counter belt have been replaced for years of trouble-free service. Rubber pinch roller has been reconditioned, internal transport cleaned of old grease & re-lubed, capstan burnished, heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport. RCA I/O jacks repaired. Record and 'Reverse PB' heads have been replaced with examples offering less wear than originals. Heads in good shape as well, with many hundred hours of performance left in them. Record / playback relay contacts were burnished for signal integrity. Entire head block assembly re-adjusted allowing 'Tape Lift' mechanism to function. Complete head alignment / azimuth has been adjusted w/ dual trace O-scope, and factory test tone tapes for peak performance. Pinch roller and heads all in GREAT condition!!! Line / Microphone input & Playback output input potentiometers cleaned, as well as all switches for static free performance. Both VU meter lamps test fine and power lamp replaced.  Both level meters adjusted for even input, playback and record.
Following refurbishment, on our test bench, this deck measured;
Floor noise tested @ 0mVAC in PB mode w/ output maxed.
Speed checked to 99.7% / 1,000Hz=1,003Hz accuracy. 
Plays perfectly and records INCREDIBLY WELL at -0-0.5dB
(and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy).  Transport to Record / PB amp umbilical cables replaced. AC power cable also replaced with a new cord.
(Total time investment in refurb / testing ~ 16 hours). Following mechanical / electronic refurb, entire unit was cosmetically detailed inside and out. Face is made of beautiful brushed Stainless Steel and is dent free and in great condition. Cabinet covered in real Walnut wood veneer, is in great condition and just had a fresh coat of lemon oil. Deck looks and sound great!

  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit.

  We have completely and extensively gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit.

  Entire transport was disassembled down to the chassis, and every mechanical part was disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and reassembled (this is a VERY difficult deck to work on, especially considering any adjustments to the 'top layer', as the face plate has to remain partially attached while working on it (kind of like only being able to lift the hood a few inches on your car to change the plugs)



 Tape Tension arms disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, and their springs adjusted and had fresh 500,000 grade silicone lube gel applied

 pinch-roller mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed,

 PR mechanism solenoid mounts adjusted

 Capstans / flywheels removed, bushings and axels cleaned and re-lubed and flywheels burnished (see photos above)

 Capstans burnished

   Rubber pinch roller re-conditioned

  Brand new MAIN drive belt installed

  Brand new counter belt installed

 Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

 Brakes adjusted on fast wind modes also (optimized for 7" tape.)

 Back tension adjusted on both reel motors.

 Heads in great shape as well, with many years of performance left in them.

  BOTH direction Playback and Record Head alignment / azimuth was adjusted for peak performance with factory test tone tape and oscilloscope.

 Speed tested to 99.7% accuracy following refurb (meaning that our 'verified' 1000Hz test tape now plays back at 1003Hz).

 Adjusted to record a @ -3dB @ 1kHz on normal bias tape. In a 'real world' recording situation, we experienced an average of -5dB with 'High Bias' tape (trying 4-5 types)

 Floor noise measured at >-60dB w/ blank tape, L&R

 This Teac A-4300SX functions, plays, and records VERY WELL (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy).  (Total time investment in refurb / testing ~ 11.5 hours).

SHIPPED TO PAUL IN VIRGINIA

 Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit.

 We have completely and extensively gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit.

 Entire transport was disassembled down to the chassis, and every mechanical part was disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and reassembled including; Both Tape Lifters, Pinch Roller Pivot Arm, EOT Sensor Arm, Left Tape Tension arm mechanism, Capstan Motor (clean and re-lube), Capstan and flywheel shaft removed cleaned / re-lubed (pretty much every moving part)

 Tape Tension arms disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, and their springs adjusted



 Removed 4 shims to correct take-up reel table height to eliminate reel, rim scrape.

 pinch-roller 'arm' mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed

 Capstan / flywheel removed, bushings and axles cleaned and re-lubed and flywheels burnished

 Capstan motor pulley burnished

 Capstan burnished

 Rubber pinch roller removed and re-conditioned

 New MAIN drive belt, #FR13.4 installed

 Brand new counter belt, #153 installed

 Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

 Brakes adjusted on fast wind modes at ALL points thru a tape. It's a fine line between having the brakes actuate with too much tension, 'abruptly' stopping the tape (risking stretching / breaking of tape) or too loose (allows tape to 'dump'). (VERY difficult to do on this series). Brakes optimized for 7" reels.

 Back tension adjusted on both reel motors.

 All three motors test perfectly. Following above adjustments, Reel Start and Stop tested at beginning, middle and end of 7" reels.

 Internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function (initially, of course, had typical static / noise which is to be expected in an 'un-serviced' deck after 35+ years).

 External / User adjustable pots, switches and controls cleaned on the playback / record amp and tested for noise-free function

 Following it's initial refurb, we were not able to get the internal Record Level to record at "zero dB" without having the internal PC mounted pots maxed, and the 'Input Level' pot maxed. We had another AR-60 PB / REC amp section at the shop, swapped it in, did all the calibration steps again, and it worked great (Just FYI; the "AR-60" is the entire bottom third section of the deck. Yes, that 'chewed-up' a potentially valuable electronic part, but was the only 'practical' way we could get the deck to our level of standards.
- YES, we're that thorough and committed, which should tell you a lot about purchasing a 40 year old R2R from 'just anybody'. -

 Replaced one VU meter

 Checked / replaced VU meter lamps / bulbs

 We adjusted the VU meters mechanically and electronically w/ factory test tone tapes, as well as the internal playback levels for both directions independently and record levels (required changing out one of the meters, for another OEM unit).

 We adjusted the output, 'Minimum Input', 'Specified Input', 'Record Level' and 'Bias' all to spec, then further adjusted 'Bias' for Ampex GM-456

 Both spindles in perfect alignment.

 Heads in great shape as well, with many years of performance left in them

 Playback and Record Head alignment / azimuth was adjusted for peak performance with factory test tone tape and oscilloscope.

 Speed tested to 99.3% accuracy following refurb (meaning that our 'verified' 1000Hz test tape now plays back at 993Hz).
 
 Adjusted to record VERY WELL. Biased for Ampex GM 456 studio tape with the following results w/ Output control ~"2:00 PM":
1kHz recorded @ 0dB resulted in PB @ 0dB
10kHz recorded @ 0dB resulted in PB @ +3dB
15kHz recorded @ 0dB resulted in PB @ 0dB
17.5kHz recorded @ 0dB resulted in PB @ -6dB

 'Real World, DDD CD recorded actually seems to have better 'top end' than the original w/ GM456. Tech notes;
"this thing records amazingly well!!!".

 Floor noise measured at >-60dB w/ blank tape, L&R

 This TEAC A-6010 functions, plays, and records VERY WELL (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy).  (Total time investment in refurb process / and final testing ~ 30 hours).

Face is beautiful, brushed, Stainless Steel and case is in great condition. Deck looks near new and works great! 

The TEAC A-6010 Stereo Reel to Reel tape deck. Ready to GO! This is one of the few reel to reel decks we get in that make it to our finished page. Great performer. If you're looking for a reel to reel deck to "actually use" here you go. Only about 25% of the used Reel decks out there can be "practically" restored to working order. This one made it through with flying colors after about 30 hours of bench time.

Following mechanical / electronic refurb, entire unit was cosmetically detailed inside and out. Face is made of beautiful brushed Stainless Steel and is dent free and in great condition. Cabinet covered in real Walnut wood veneer, is in great condition with just a few 'battle scars' (see photos above) and just had a fresh coat of lemon oil. Deck looks and sound great! 
   ____________________________
   
Looks great & "Ready-to-go"  TEAC -6010 Stereo Reel to Reel tape deck. These were later, bigger brother to the A-4010, probably the most sold R2R ever made by anybody. Just about everyone that was stationed overseas in the military during Viet Nam came back with an A-4010. The fortunate few came back with the A-6010 (a few 'better specs'). The "A-6010" was included in TEAC's 'Professional Line'. Unfortunately of course, 40 years has not been kind to Teac Reel decks (or any electro-mechanical devices that are 20 years old or older). The internal lubes were never meant to last that long, certainly without maintenance, and 'rubber' doesn't 'age well' either, thus requiring the above stated work. Ready to go now. Will play & Record stereo 1/4" tapes on reels up to 7". This is one of the few reel to reel decks we get in that make it to our finished page. If you're looking for a reel to reel deck to "actually use" then here you go. Only about 25% of the used Reel decks out there can be "practically" restored to working order. This one made it through. Playback & transport functions test great and records well! Looks and sounds great too!



HEY, WHY ALL THE 'X'd' OUT / OMITTED SPECS AND TEXT?

  


This is only the second Teac A-6010 we have had in ~24 years. Great machine for playback / archiving your tapes to CD or Hard Drive or for recording new tapes. This is a beautiful deck. Performs incredibly well following refurbishing. With the exception of the above mentioned 'dings' on the wood housing it's all including the face, knobs, covers and all cosmetics fabulous! Measures 17.5" wide x 20.78" tall x 8.25" (from tip of back feet-tip of hubs) deep and weighs 52 lbs unpacked. Includes a set of 'fresh' spindle stoppers / reel clamps. Comes with a pdf 'e' copy of TEAC A-4010S owners manual and schematic (same unit with slightly lower specs). Can include the TEAC A-6010 Service Manual pdf 'e' download if you wish as well. Includes our standard 90 day limited warranty.

External / User adjustable pots, switches and controls cleaned on the playback / record amp and tested for noise-free function

 Following it's initial refurb, we discovered that it was recording about 6dB down on one channel, and would intermittently have distortion on playback of one side (rarely, but would happen if you listened long enough). We traced both problems to issues with the PB / REC amp section, so after a few months of searching was able to source another original. Once received, we then put the deck and the new amp through the shop and did all the final adjustments to it.
YES, we're that thorough, which should tell you a lot about purchasing a 40 year old R2R from 'just anybody'.

Our technician has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through and 'Certified' this unit which involves complete removal and disassembly of the entire transport, cleaning inside and out, DISASSEMBLING, cleaning and re-lubricating all internal mechanisms and the balance of efforts listed below.

Heads inspected for excessive wear (obviously we do this 'early on' as 'excessive' wear will usually negate any further restoration work). These have virtually NO visible wear to them.

Capstan motor spindle bushing re-lubed

Capstan burnished

Internal DC power supply tested

2X NEW, Custom crafted / modified, 'reel drive' installed for years of trouble-free service. (These are actually much more important to replace on this deck (and most) than the belts. Without these, the deck won't fast wind very well, and will likely 'eat tapes' as the 'take-up' reel won't turn properly)

All new internal Drive and Counter belts installed for trouble-free service.

Rubber pinch rollers have been reconditioned

Both Flywheel 'belt surfaces' solvent cleaned

Bronze Flywheel bushings solvent cleaned

Both Flywheel thrust pads cleaned

Entire flywheel assemblies re-lubed upon re-assembly

Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

New Tape well lamp installed.

Head alignments and azimuth at 125Hz, 1kHz and 10kHz adjusted for 'peak performance' with O-Scope and original TEAC alignment tape

All internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function.

Both spindles in perfect alignment.

FF, REW, & Play transport functions all test perfectly and controls tested for 'positive / accurate' responsive.

'Silicone Damped' Eject door operates smoothly.

Tape Counter Function tested

Dolby NR circuits / function tested

'Memory / Zero Return' function tested

Heads are in great condition

Internal playback levels adjusted for even playback w/ alignment tape, Oscilloscope, and mVAC meter

Playback meters adjusted for 'playback' zero'd with factory test tone tape.

Internal Record amplifier channels adjusted for 'even output'

Pinch roller and heads all in GREAT condition!!!

Overall floor noise measured at >-60dB.

Speed adjusted internally to 100% accuracy BOTH directions, with 1kHz factory calibration tape and frequency counter (meaning 1kHz calibration tape plays back at 1000Hz +/- 2Hz)

Plays great and after adjustment, records AMAZINGLY well w/ following results;
With Pink Noise recorded at 0dB w/o Dolby engaged; -0dB on Maxell UDXL-II / High Bias tapes


Bottom line is this deck sounds amazing for playback or recording (always make sure you're playing back 'good quality' tape recordings)
Total technician time to restore 15+ HOURS!

SOLD 12/9/17
SHIPPED TO OREGON


Our technician has completely and EXTENSIVELY gone through and 'Certified' this unit which involves complete disassembly of the transport (not an easy task on this table), cleaning inside and out, partially disassembling, cleaning and re-lubricating all internal mechanisms and the balance of efforts listed below.

Heads inspected for excessive wear (obviously we do this 'early on' as 'excessive' wear will usually negate any further restoration work).

Entire Tape transport completely removed from chassis



Cam Drive belt replaced for trouble-free service.

Entire front face panel removed during refurb / servicing

All 'Transport' 'momentary micro-switches' replaced with new (very time consuming operation)

Rubber pinch roller reconditioned

Capstan burnished

Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

Head alignments and azimuth checked and adjusted as necessary for 'peak performance' with O-Scope

All internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function.

FF, REW, & Play transport functions all test perfectly and controls tested for 'positive / accurate' responsive.

Eject door operates smoothly (Eject switch requires 'pressure' on 'lower edge' to engage).

'Tape Motion / Counter Sensor' lamp' replaced (otherwise transport will stop after a few seconds if this is not functioning)

Meters adjusted to even zero with symmetric input.

Speed adjusted to 100% accuracy with 1kHz factory calibration tape (meaning 1kHz calibration tape plays back at 1000Hz +/- 1Hz)

Tape Counter Function tested

Dolby B, C and dbx NR circuits tested

'Memory / Zero Return' function tested

Heads are in 'AS-NEW' condition, with NO visible wear!

Pinch roller and heads all in GREAT condition!!!

Floor noise measured at -60dB

Cosmetics are in essentially NEW condition. Deck works, sounds and looks great! 

Plays perfectly and after our adjustment, records AMAZINGLY well at overall ~ -2.5-3 dB! on High bias type tapes using Pink Noise and DDD CD material (Following the extensive restoration, we did 'test recordings' of a 'DDD' CD on 6 tapes; Sony Normal Bias, Fuji Normal Bias, TDK Normal Bias, Maxell Normal Bias, TDK 'SA' High Bias, and Maxell 'XL-II' High Bias. We found that for Normal and High Bias, of those tapes tested, both the TDK and "Maxells" performed VERY well on this particular deck. Both the Maxell's and the TDK's able to 'over saturate' on the levels. This deck sounded very good, regardless of the NR type selected (ie; No NR, Dolby B, Dolby C or dbx (my personal favorite for over 30 years). In fact, we were able to push the record levels to more than +10dB, not only with dbx (as you should be able to), but on Dolby C and Dolby B!
 Total technician time to restore ~16.5 HOURS!

We commonly will not give a "dubbing" / dual well cassette deck a second look as there weren't many that were not simply two cheap decks in one box. I KNOW, as I have sold hundreds of them when new by just about every brand. I always tried to persuade anyone looking for a "real" deck, to generally avoid them and just get a good, single play deck or two single play decks. "Dubbing" decks, as a general rule just didn't have quality transports or decent specs. There were, however a handful of exceptions that combined the convenience of a dubbing deck, with quality and we have posted a few with our high quality single well decks! This Teac W-6000R is...

 This TEAC W-6000R would be perfect for the project studio as a mastering deck or home audio system use. Especially for a "project studio" as the "Tape Mix" control practically turns it into an "all in one" studio. It allows a mix in any combination of a tape in well "1", the microphones and a Line-In signal to be recorded onto a tape in well "2". Also great for transferring your tape collection to CD, Hard-drive or MP3.  Built very well! Looks like new and sounds great. Deck includes a copy of original Teac W-6000R owners manual. Measures  17.25" wide x 13" deep x 6" tall and weighs 15 lbs unpacked. Comes with our 90 day limited warranty.

  Our technician has completely gone through and 'Certified' this unit.
(in-fact we had both of our Senior Techs go thru it, one after the other, just to make sure we had 'all the "i's" dotted and all the "T's" crossed)

  We have completely and extensively gone through the mechanicals and electronics of this unit.

  Entire transport was disassembled down to the chassis, and every mechanical part was disassembled, cleaned, re-lubed and reassembled (this is a VERY difficult deck to work on, especially considering any adjustments to the 'top layer', as the face plate has to remain partially attached while working on it (kind of like only being able to lift the hood a few inches on your car to change the plugs)

 Tape Tension arms disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed, and their springs adjusted and had fresh 500,000 grade silicone lube gel applied to the Kevlar strings

 pinch-roller mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned and re-lubed,

 PR mechanism solenoid mounts adjusted

 Capstans / flywheels removed, bushings and axels cleaned and re-lubed

 Capstans burnished

   Rubber pinch rollers have been cleaned and re-conditioned

  Brand new MAIN drive belt installed

  Brand new counter belt installed

 Heads have been cleaned and de-magnetized as well as the entire transport.

 Brakes adjusted on fast wind modes also (optimized for 7" tape. 5" tape will work, but will 'dump' slightly when fast winding to a complete stop)

 Back tension adjusted on both reel motors.

 All three motors test perfectly. Following above adjustments, Reel Start and Stop tested at beginning, middle and end of 7" tapes

 Internal pots, switches and controls cleaned and tested for noise-free function.

 Sheared 'Mic Input' potentiometer replaced with OEM unit

 Replaced bent Auto Reverse contact spring

 New Meter lamps / bulbs installed (originals still worked, but preventative maintenance)

 We adjusted the VU meters mechanically and electronically w/ factory test tone tapes, as well as the internal playback levels for both directions independently and record levels.

 Deck has been fully calibrated to factory manual specs, tested, and found to perform like new in all categories

 Both spindles in perfect alignment.

 We also adjusted the reel table heights.

 Heads in great shape as well, with many years of performance left in them.

  BOTH direction Playback and Record Head alignment / azimuth was adjusted for peak performance with factory test tone tape and oscilloscope.

 Both internal speed pots adjusted to 100% accuracy on either speed independently (with pitch control zero'd) (meaning that our 'verified' 1000Hz test tape now plays back at 1000Hz).

 We Adjusted to record at +/-0dB on High Bias Chrome tape at 1kHz and -3dB @ 15kHz and on normal records at 0dB @ 1kHz and -8dB at 15kHz (in other words, it records VERY well)

 Floor noise measured at <1mv w/ blank tape, L&R

 This TEAC X-7R functions, plays, and records perfectly (and we really put them through the paces, testing both with well mixed, recently recorded CD material and CD recorded / factory test tones looking for correct head Azimuth and speed accuracy).  (Total time investment in refurb / testing ~ 19 hours between the two techs).

Face is beautiful, beige anodized, aluminum and case is in great condition. Deck looks NEW and works great! 

The TEAC X-7R Stereo Reel to Reel tape deck. Ready to GO! This is one of the few reel to reel decks we get in that make it to our finished page. Great performer. If you're looking for a reel to reel deck to "actually use" here you go. Only about 30-50% of the used Reel decks out there can be "practically" restored to working order. This one made it through with flying colors after about 19 hours of bench time.

The deck tests great! Looks and sounds great too! We have completely gone through it. Will play 3", 5" & 7" reels (again, we optimized the braking for 7" reels).

Pinch rollers and heads all in GREAT condition!!! Face is made of beautiful, black anodized, brushed Aluminum and looks very nice. Very clean and looks near new. Unit looks GREAT!

We will be getting more machines ready over the next few days to a couple weeks, but it is a slow process, as every 20+ year old Reel to Reel tape deck requires 10-18 hours of service to be brought back to "usable" condition. Check back often as they will sell out quickly!
