The B77 is equipped with three AC asynchronous motors and a capstan which is controlled by a tachometer head that monitors impulses created by the teeth on the perimeter of the motor. This ensure speed accuracy while reducing wow and flutter.
About our Reel-to-Reel Deck
Sometimes technologies don't become outdated, they are simply forgotten. Music was recorded to tape for a generations but was eventually replaced by a digital process. It doesn't mean that it is an inferior format, rather digital recording was easier to work with than its analog counterpart. So tape didn't really go away, it was simply put in storage. Some of the finest recordings ever made are found on tape and despite multiple attempts to transfer them to a digital format, the original tape sounds better. Most audiophiles agree that tape format is the pinnacle of sound quality but requires dedication. Listening to tape is a very special experience, but not very convenient. Open reel tape can be fagile and is far more complicated to use compared to digital (or even vinyl for that matter). The tape decks require regular cleaning and preparing a tape to play takes a bit of time. But, if you are prepared to do the work, nothing sounds as good as an open reel tape. With many companies releasing both new and reissuing classic titles on tape, there is a good supply of music to enjoy. Tape is making a resurgence and like the vinyl resurgence, just keeps on growing. Even the famous tape deck manufacturer ReVox of Switzerland has reintroduced their tape decks due to demand. We offer the worlds finest tape playback along with digital and vinyl systems to allow you to compare these formats and decide which one is right for you. A word of warning: you may be hooked once you hear the tape!
