Nakamichi RX-202 Unique Physical Auto Reversing Tape Deck (UDAR), Freshly Serviced


This super cool auto reverse deck from Nakamichi received a SkyFi fresh service including new belts, calibration, and testing.

Playback and record work as they should, and overall it sounds very respectable for its age. This specific deck was produced from 1982 through 1993.

The physical auto reverse "Spinning Tape" mechanism is a pleasure to watch, and was like nothing else at the time or since. It was actually featured in several films and TV shows for its cool-factor.

More from Nakamichi:

The RX-202 transport features UDAR, Nakamichi's unique uni-directional auto-reverse mechanism, eliminating the azimuth error loss of conventional auto-reverse decks.

The music sensing circuit monitors playback and fast forwards through blank 'tail' to provide uninterrupted playback.

A dual master fader creates smooth 2 or 4 second fades at a touch.

The frequency response of the RX-202 rivals that of most 3-head decks thanks to a specially designed laminated Sendust record/play head.
