At one stage I had two turntables and a cassette deck, then a trip to Adelaide in South Australia, which is where I live, I discovered the world of open reel decks. The open reel deck I purchased was the TEAC X10R which was complete with DBX compression system. Unfortunately I no longer have this unit. The deck below is the same model, but without the DBX unit.
There is something special about the operation of an Open reel deck, the large reels turning, the mechanical operation of the solenoids, and motors picking up speed.
I still have a fully operational JVC SVHS video deck.
