Yamaha TC-800GL


The TC-800GL is no ordinary cassette deck, as one glance will tell. Its futuristic lines, created by one of the world's leading designers, are as functional as they are strikingly original.

But the really outstanding aspects of the TC-800GL can be summed up in two words: performance and versatility.

With wow and flutter held to less than 0.06% and a frequency response of 30 to 15,000Hz (using FeCr or Cr02 tape), true high fidelity music reproduction from cassettes has
become a reality.

In addition to specifications like these that place it among the most advanced recording decks
available, the TC-800GL is one of the easiest to operate from any position, even while it is being carried (it weighs a mere 5 Kg). It can record literally anywhere - concert hall or countryside.
