re: X-7

Does somebody know the difference(s) between a Teac X-7 and a Teac X-7 MKII ?

re: X-7

I did some research and think the difference is that:
MKII added EE tape compatibility (which never really took off because there would be no noticeable difference at 7.5 ips or higher)

The R added auto reverse on top of that so it's a 4track system.
