Tandberg 6000X


The new tape recorder Series 6000X is designed for the world's most discriminating markets, and is in a class by itself when it comes to quality, precision and sound reproduction.

It is a modern, fully transistorized design; the operational devices are clearly arranged and in spite of its numerous technicalities the tape recorder is simple and easy to operate.

It is intended for use together with separate Hi-Fi amplifiers and has therefore no built-in power amplifiers.

There are separate heads for recording, playback and erase, plus a bias head. Two moving coil meters indicate recording levels. These instruments also indicate the output level at playback.

Professional tape recorder users will appraise the merits of Series 6000X. Mixing possibilities in stereo with separate input controls (2 for each channel), microphone with pickup, line or radio, 4 input controls for mixing in mono, and you can also listen to the playback during recording.

Features include one-lever control of tape drive, push-button for electrical functions and track selection, illuminated 4-digit revolution counter, automatic end-stop, pause-button and possibilities for remote control of start and stop.

The Tandberg Series 6000X Stereo is available in 2- or 4-track versions, in teak or rosewood cabinets.
