Akai CR-83D


The Akai CR-83D is an 8-track, 2-channel stereo system featuring automatic stop, continuous play and easy tape counting.

The combination head employed in the CR-83D is coated with a special substance for a super smooth finish to which dust will not adhere. Thus, head cleaning is minimized and longer head life is assured.

As an added convenience, this model features fast forward for rapid selection of tape programs and a pause control for temporary suspension of playback, or convenient tape editing.
