Stereo Tapecorder (1971)
The Sony Model TC-651 is a solid state stereo tape deck designed for the dedicated audiophile.
The use of all silicon transistors and four precision heads including a reverse playback head results in extremely accurate handling of transient waveforms, low noise and low distortion.
The three motor tape transport mechanism is designed to provide flutter-free, stable operation either in a vertical or horizontal position.
Independent mechanism, electronic plug-in card system, plug-in head assembly and plug-in head cover make this recorder extremely simple to service.
Special features include:
APS (Automatic Program Scanner) senses the beginning of a recorded tape
Automatic reversing system may be programmed for non reverse, one reverse cycle, or continuous play
