Description

Sponsored post - log in to remove this ad.

3 complete machines, lots of spares , at least 1 machine works mechanically, all original tubes, 1950s playback only machines used in radio stations, and for Muzak in shopping malls , airports, and elevators ... history from the early days of tape recording.these machines take up to 14" reels for 8 hr continous playback times.
These machines are the rack mount versions,
It looks like the 2 grey machines have the autoreverse option, most likely the first tape decks to implement autoreverse... (25hz tone sense)
The tan Machine (slightly later 450H) is from the AltoFonic Programming Services, a long-gone syndicated programming service for radio!I will also include a couple of Muzak tapes, unsure of contents ......These are from the estate of an elderly gentleman...... All reasonable offers considered, LOCAL PICKUP or I can drop off (unboxed) at shipper of your choice.These would be great for a museum , collector , or movie prop.
