TEAC 450


The 450 from TEAC is called the Challenger for it is the first cassette deck truly capable of challenging the open reel decks claims to superior performance.

The specifications indicate how the 450 is superior to most open reel decks in wow and flutter elimination, and how competitive it is with many in frequency response and SN ratio.

The challenge will be most apparent when you see the luxurious design, feel the quality features and hear the magnificent sound of Challenger.
