4-Channel Multitrack Tape Deck with Simul-Sync (1981)
The new TEAC A-3440 represents another advancement on an already widely accepted technological base.
The previous A-3340S with Simul-Sync established the popularity of four channel tape decks with over-dub facility.
To a large segment of people who are seriously involved in creative music, both as artists and as professionals, decks such as the TEAC trail blazing A3340S satisfied a need.
Now the A3440 goes a step further by utilising the experience gained from producing truly professional tape decks, such as the Tascam 80-8.

Superb machine, no distortion, no hiss , perfect speed, makes my hifi system do things it's never done before, beautiful mellow sound, great bass response. This plays music the way it was supposed to sound, my CD's records and cassette simply do not compare. $1000 well spent

As a reel to reel I gave it a reasonable rating because the unit worked well and gave me that 60's sound that you can get with a good tape instrument. But. I also record digitally and the noise floor on this unit is quite high, but again not bad for a 4 channel tape deck. Wow and Flutter however was excellent and within specifications.
