Beautiful Ray! Very nice.

I finally scored some TEAC metal reels for my X-10R. So it looks very authentic now wink.gif

My buddy is giving me his Pioneer RT-707...any thoughts from you guys?

 

(I'll start searching now too...)

That was one of the most modern of the decks Pioneer made. And they made LOTS of them, so they are pretty common to find if you ever needed parts. Biggest "issue" is that they only play 7 inch reels.

Thank you, I have been reading up a little bit about the RT-707 on the Tape Project forum: 

 

PROS:

-Auto-reverse for ee-zz listenin'. I love playing my 7" pre-recorded tapes through this when I'm doing other stuff in the vicinity. It provides analog sound without the constant need to pay attention to what's going on with the machine (I'm thinking especially of LPs)

-User friendly. The tape-guide lock feature makes tape threading a breeze.

 

CONS:  won't do 10 1/2 inch 15ips 2-track with IEC eq
 


The RT-707 will still be my first foray into tape...I've got a lot more reading to do!!

God, these look gorgeous. You make me want a tape rig now, curse you all! angry_face.gif

 

Just kidding, no curses here, but seriously, those are amazing rigs you all have!

Wow I would love to find one of those.  But I'd also like to find the Dolby decoder unit for these - have you ever seen one of those?

Skylab,

Is this what you are looking for?

There is one on Ebay right now, New In Box!

Do you still have your Pioneer RT-1020L?  I need a take up reel motor (supply motor is the same motor type).

Mine has an open winding.

My phone is 262 367-6128.
