Realistic TR-3000


Upgrading is for music lovers who can hear the difference. For them, Radio Shack has made the difference affordable with the TR-3000.

For example 30-28,000 Hz frequency response, extended dynamic range, low distortion, low noise - you get it all in the easy to be creative open reel format.

Tape handling is no problem because the TR-3000 is totally logic controlled. A pushbutton activated solenoid system controls all tape movement - you can switch functions instantly, without tape spills or snarls. Pause and mute controls even let you edit, electronically, as you record.

The TR-3000 has three motors. A precision servo controlled capstan motor reduces wow and flutter to less than 0.06% WRMS. Two high-torque reel motors maintain constant tape tension for smooth, fast winding.

Separate play, record and erase heads give you off the tape monitoring, individual mike and line input controls work like a built in mixer and high/low bias and EQ switches are provided for an optimum match with any tape.

I owned one of these in the early 2000's. Very nice deck.
I beleive it was made by TEAC
