You are bidding on a Philips N7300 reel-to-reel tape recorder.
This recorder three head, three motor, three speed machine is in a very good used condition; please review the photographs.
The take-up and supply spool tensions are both servo controlled for smooth wind and thus does not require a spool size switch.
Tape threading is easy due to the 'clear path' system this recorder uses.
The tape counter is driven from the supply spool to give an indication of tape position; this is coupled to a zero stop control that can stop the recorder mechanism when the tape counter reaches zero from either direction and of cause a reset button to set the counter to zero at any time. Tape play speed is servo controlled for the three selectable speeds of 1 7/8 ips, 3 3/4 ips and 7 1/2 ips with front panel pitch control to change the speed of the tape around the selected speed to correct for any incorrectly recorded tapes you may have.
This recorder can use reel sizes from 4 to 10 1/2 inches with 1/4 inch tape. Spools and NAB adaptors shown are not included in the sale. There are built in spool locks for vertical mounting if required.
Microphone inputs are available on the front of the machine, Line outputs and two sets of inputs and are on the rear, one pair of the inputs include fixed attenuators for higher level inputs; there is also a multiplay output available. The front panel includes a headphone output with its own separate volume control.
The push button tape controls allow you to transition between any of the speeds and directions without having to stop the machine first.
Foil auto stop is included allowing you to add a section of stop foil between the end of your tapes and the long leader tape, then the machine will stop without un-threading. There is a meter on each channel to observe the recording or playback level, above this and to the right is the operational on-off switch. To enable queing of tape the que wheel on the head block cover changes the position of the tape guides under fine control so the tape can be located near the tape heads allowing the tape to be heard during wind.
This machine works best with double and triple play tapes.
The Audio for the YouTube Video in this listing was recorded and played back on the actual machine for sale by connecting to the line output connectors. Please listen and watch the video, this shows the quality of the recording and playback, for this the tape was matt backed long play.
