Technics RS-1506US Reel to Reel Recorder - 2/4 Track - Fully Calibrated and Tested


The RS-1500 series comes in many flavors with different speeds and head configurations.  This 1506 is one of the most flexible, being able to play back four track and two track at 3-1/4, 7-1/2 and 15 IPS. 

It's also one of the most striking RTR players... just look at the solid metal tape head assembly and interesting tape routing path!  And the round-looking knob just below the tape head is a strobe speed indicator that lights up just like their  famous SL-1200MK2 turntable. 

If you've never owned a RTR and love the sound of vinyl, you owe it to your ears to get one.  It's just as good as a brand new record (or even better!) without all of the clicks, pops, or surface noise.  Plus, you can play it for hours without leaving your couch.  

This machine was fully calibrated in our lab utilizing the best test and calibration tapes available.  It is functioning as it should, and is in beautiful overall physical condition with no significant scratches or wear marks.  The dual VU meters are fast and well lit, and all of the controls are super responsive to your touch.

This listing includes the Technics Reel to Reel recorder, a power cord, and even includes two new take up reels and hub adapters.
