Revox G36


The Revox Series 36 has been constantly improved and kept up to date, since it was first introduced in 1956. However, the present G still bears the same basic layout and conception as did the original A recorder.

Compared with the preceding models, the following major innovations have been incorporated in the RevoxX G36 recorder: Hysteresis-Synchronous Capstan motor, VU, meters for record level control and a tape-tension switch to permit the use of all reels from 7 inch up to 10 1/2 inch diameter.

The G36 model is available in both 2 and 4 track versions. Identification is made by the appropriate number being stamped on the head mounting plate, and on the upper side of the lower chassis.

The recorder consists of an upper and lower chassis. These are joined at the rear by means of the back panel which carries the input and output sockets, mains voltage adjuster and fuse-holder, and at the front by means of the loudspeaker panel mountings.

The upper chassis carries the tape transport mechanism and the lower chassis bears the power supply unit and the electronics.

All Audio Connections are led to standard phono sockets. To interconnect the Revox recorder with other audio Equipment, a selection of adapter cables is available.
