Stereo Tape Recorder
The Concept ELC takes it's name from the unique computer derived Electronic Logic Controls.
Feather touch buttons activate an electronic brain that controls the functions of the motors and solenoids.
Tape motion is controlled by circuitry that sense and reacts to tape movement; when you switch directions, the ELC automatically pauses before changing to eliminate stress on the cassette.
The circuitry even applies a measured voltage to instantly bring the tape speed within it's wow and flutter specs.

This is one beastly tape deck. Big, heavy, built solid, and pure old school operation. Theres no eject button or remote control. Similar to full logic, but for comparison- full logic drunk on cheap booze, loud but precise. Sound wise, its ok. Not audiophile! Great for rock-n-roll or content thats not super detailed. Beautiful blue and red display. My service tech said it was a pain to work on.
