TEAC A-800

TEAC A-800 Stereo Cassette Deck ('79-'80)  $200

In keeping with our preferred type of vintage gear, this is a one-owner unit and was very well taken care of.  

One of TEAC's best looking and best operating tape decks, the A-800 is a 2 motor, 3-head, single-play unit for playing and recording 4-track, 2-channel stereo.  

The three separate heads for record, playback and erase functions put it in the higher class of fine decks in the late 70's.  Separate motors for reel drive and capstan add to its excellent build.  Dolby noise reduction "B" is built-in along with separate controls for tape types are type 1, FeCr, and CrO2

This TEAC A-800 is a fully functional deck with a gorgeous front end design that definitely makes this deck a fine piece of vintage history.
