This was one of the nicest machines that Teac produced in 1977. It was very reliable, new it cost $350 today they can be found on ebay normally around $450 for a working deck. If you can find one that has not been abused it is well worth the buy.



re: A-640

Frequently it's only the Service Manual that's available. I could use one too! I can't even figure out how to open it? I think you have to take the front knobs off and then bottom screws also, but not sure.

re: A-640

Anybody out there have a service manual for this unit?
