Auto Reverse Tape Deck
The Sony Model TC-458 is a premium quality stereo tape deck specially designed for serious home recordists.
It features sophisticated electronic and mechanical refinements for rich, clear sound reproduction.
A closed-loop dual capstan tape drive assures positive tape to head contact regardless of external vibration.
The servo controlled AC capstan motor maintains speed variation to a minimum, even during large discrepancies in live voltage, load and frequency.

Automatic reversing system is activated by sensing foil in both record and playback modes.
