TEAC X-1000M TEAC-X-1000M 1/4" REEL TO REEL TAPE DECK RECORDER [Expired]


no longer for sale

THE TEAC X-1000M IS, BY MOST, FELT TO BE ONE OF TEAC’S FINEST ACHIEVEMENTS IN HOME STEREO TAPE DECK RECORDERS.  AT THE VERY LEAST, IT IS A HIGH END, HIGH PERFORMANCE TWO CHANNEL, TWO TRACK STEREO TAPE DECK, THAT HAS THE CAPACITY FOR MAKING AND PLAYING BACK  1/4" STUDIO QUALITY MASTER TWO TRACK RECORDINGS AT  SPEEDS OF 7-1/2 I.P.S. OR 15 I.P.S.

BUT, IT ALSO,  HAS THE CAPACITY TO  PLAYBACK ANY STANDARD 1/4" TWO CHANNEL FOUR TRACK STEREO PRE-RECORDED TAPE THAT WAS PROFESSIONALLY PRODUCED AT A SPEED OF 7-1/2 I.P.S. AND THEN SOLD IN RETAIL STORES (THAT CAN NOW BE PURCHASED ON EBAY AND ELSEWHERE).

AND IT ALSO CAN PLAY THE "NEW" 1/4" TWO CHANNEL TWO TRACK MASTER TAPE COPIES, THAT UTILIZE THE I.E.C. EQUALIZATION PLAYBACK STANDARD, WHICH ARE NOW BEING PRODUCED AND SOLD TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC BYTAPE PROJECT".

THESE "NEW" MASTER TAPE COPIES ARE BEING MADE AVAILABLE ON THE WEB AT THE "TAPE PROJECT" WEBSITE. 

TEAC WAS A WORLD RETAILER OF REEL TO REEL TAPE DECKS IN THE LAST CENTURY.  SO IN ORDER TO MARKET  ONE TAPE DECK IN BOTH THE NORTH AMERICAN AND  THE EUROPE MARKETS, TEAC ADDED A SWITCH TO THE X-1000M DECK, THAT ALLOWED THE OWNER TO SWITCH BETWEEN N.A.B. (THE USA EQUALIZATION PLAYBACK TAPE STANDARD) AND I.E.C. (THE EUROPEAN EQUALIZATION PLAYBACK TAPE STANDARD).

NOW, "TAPE PROJECT" BEGINS BUYING UP MASTER STUDIO TAPES OF POPULAR ARTISTS, AND BEGINS MAKING 1/4" TAPE COPIES AT 15 I.P.S. (TWO CHANNEL TWO TRACK), UTILIZING THE I.E.C. EQUALIZATION PLAYBACK STANDARD. AND THEN "TAPE PROJECT" BEGINS SELLING THESE COPIES TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. 

IN ORDER TO PLAY THESE NEW 1/4" TAPE COPIES, YOUR TAPE DECK HAS TO BE ABLE TO RUN AT A SPEED OF 15 I.P.S., BE ABLE TO PLAY A  1/4" TWO CHANNEL TWO TRACK TAPE, AND BE ABLE TO PLAYBACK THE MUSIC USING THE I.E.C. EQUALIZATION STANDARD.

AND, "LOW AND BEHOLD", THE OWNER OF THE TEAC X-1000M TAPE DECK CAN DO EXACTLY THAT: THE DECK CAN  PLAY ALL OF THE 1/4" TAPES THAT WERE PRODUCED IN THE USA (2T OR 4T) THAT WERE RECORDED AT 7-1/2 I.P.S. OR 15 I.P.S., AND WERE RECORDED, USING THE N.A.B. STANDARD. AND, IF DESIRED, THE OWNER CAN FLIP THE SWITCH  (FROM N.A.B. TO I.E.C) AND LISTEN TO "TAPE PROJECT" TAPES, THAT ARE RECORDED AT 15 I.P.S. IN TWO CHANNEL TWO TRACK FORMAT, THAT USE THE I.E.C. STANDARD FOR PLAYBACK. "THAT" IS WHAT MAKES THIS DECK SO VALUABLE !!

IN THE FOUR TRACK MODE, IT PLAYS TRACKS 1 AND 3 IN ONE DIRECTION.  AND WHEN THE TAPE IS FLIPPED OVER, IT PLAYS TRACKS 2 AND 4 (JUST LIKE ANY STANDARD TAPE RECORDER).  BUT IT IS ANYTHING BUT A STANDARD TAPE RECORDER. A FEW OTHER FEATURES THAT TAKE  IT OUT OF THE STANDARD CATEGORY ARE DUAL CAPSTAN DRIVE, PITCH CONTROL, SUPERIOR TENSION ARMS, A FREQUENCY RESPONSE OF 30 TO 34,000 HZ @ 7-1/2 I.P.S.,  INERTIA ROLLERS, AND AN AUTOMATIC TIMER FEATURE.

IT HAS INPUT CAPABILITY TO MAKE A RECORDING FROM VIRTUALLY ANY SOURCE (CD’S, FM, ANOTHER TAPE DECK, MINI-DISC PLAYER, RECORD TURNTABLE, AND OF COURSE, MICROPHONE).  AND IT CAN USE 10.5” AND 7” REELS OF TAPE.

THE DECK IS SOLD AS-IS, BUT IT COMES WITH A 30 DAY GUARANTEE TO WORK PERFECTLY. 
IF IT MALFUNCTIONS IN THE FIRST 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF RECEIPT, I WILL HAVE IT PICKED UP AND BROUGHT TO ME (VIA FEDEX GROUND), HAVE IT REPAIRED, AND RETURN IT TO YOU (TOTALLY AT MY EXPENSE).  SO SAVE THE BOX AND PACKING MATERIALS, JUST IN CASE. MORE DETAILS ARE PROVIDED AT THE VERY END OF THIS LISTING.


GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF A FEW OF THE MECHANICAL AND ELECTRONIC FUNCTIONS OF THE TEAC X-1000M

 

1.      STANDARD FOUR TRACK STEREO TAPE PLAYBACK 

THE TEAC X-1000M CAN PLAY ALL TWO CHANNEL FOUR TRACK TAPES, THAT WERE RECORDED ON 1/4" TAPE, ON 7" REELS OR 10.5" REELS.

AND IT CAN PLAY AND RECORD IN THE TWO CHANNEL TWO TRACK MODE, USING EITHER 7” REELS OR 10.5” REELS.   AND, EVEN AT THE SPEED OF 7-1/2 I.P.S., THE X-1000M DELIVERS A VERY IMPRESSIVE FREQUENCY RESPONSE OF 30 TO 34,000 HZ !!!

2.      SOLENOID OPERATION 

ALL OF THE FEATHER-TOUCH ELECTRONIC CONTROLS ARE IDEALLY LAID OUT FOR ERROR FREE ONE-HAND OPERATION.  YOU CAN PRECISELY ROCK THE TAPE BACK AND FORTH TO FIND A DESIRED SELECTION, OR TO PINPOINT RECORDING LOCATIONS.   BECAUSE OF THIS OUTSTANDING TEAC ENGINEERING FEATURE, THERE IS ALMOST NO POSSIBILITY OF TAPE DAMAGE DUE TO STRETCHING AND ALMOST NO POSSIBILITY OF TAPE SPILLAGE!!

AS WITH ALL MAJOR FUNCTIONS OF THE X-1000M, THE FAST FORWARD AND FAST REWIND FUNCTIONS ARE ALSO CONTROLLED BY FINGER-TOUCH SOLENOID OPERATION.  (SOLENOID SWITCH CONTROLS SHOWN IN PHOTO # 6 OF THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS).

3.      OUTPUT CONTROL 

NOT ALL DECKS OFFER THIS HANDY FEATURE.  THIS KNOB ALLOWS YOU TO CONTROL THE OUTPUT SIGNAL THAT GOES FROM THE TAPE DECK TO YOUR STEREO SYSTEM.  BY TURNING THE KNOB YOU CAN EASILY ADJUST THE SIGNAL LEVEL TO EQUAL THE VOLUME LEVEL OF OTHER COMPONENTS IN YOUR STEREO SYSTEM.  THIS MEANS THAT YOU CAN LOWER OR RAISE THE OUTPUT SIGNAL TO MATCH THE LEVEL OF YOUR OTHER COMPONENTS (SO THAT ONE COMPONENT IS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY LOUDER THAN ANOTHER, WHEN SWITCHING BETWEEN COMPONENTS).  OUTPUT CONTROL SHOWN IN PHOTO # 6 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS.

4.      FREQUENCY RESPONSE 

THE FREQUENCY RESPONSE OF THE TEAC X-1000M  IS NOTHING SHORT OF OUTSTANDING (30 TO 34,000 HZ AT 7-1/2 I.P.S., AND 40  TO 36,000 HZ AT 15 I.P.S.).

.5.      RECORD BIAS AND EQ SWITCHES 

AS TECHNOLOGY SKYROCKETED IN THE 60’S AND 70’S, TAPE MANUFACTURERS WERE DEVELOPING AND IMPROVING TAPE PERFORMANCE.  THESE NEW TAPES BEING OFFERED WERE LOW NOISE/HIGH OUTPUT TAPES.  BUT, THE IMPROVED PERFORMANCE WAS ONLY POSSIBLE BY CHANGING THE INTERNAL ELECTRONIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TAPE DECK.   MANY TAPE DECK MANUFACTURERS SIMPLY DID NOT GO TO THE EXTRA EXPENSE TO REVISE THE INTERNAL PARTS OF THEIR DECKS TO MATCH THIS NEW PRODUCT BEING OFFERED.  THE TEAC X-1000M HAS THE SPECIAL CIRCUITRY BUILT INTO IT, SO THAT YOU CAN ADJUST THE TAPE DECK TO CAPITALIZE ON THESE TAPE IMPROVEMENTS. FOR N.A.B. EQUALIZATION, THE PROPER CIRCUITRY IS SELECTED BY THE BIAS AND EQ CONTROLS (SHOWN IN PHOTO # 6 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS).

6.      EASY TWIST-LOCK REEL RETAINERS 

ANOTHER NICE FEATURE OF THE X-1000M ARE THE BUILT-IN TWIST-LOCK REEL RETAINERS.  SIMPLY PLACE THE REELS ON THE SPINDLES, AND TWIST THE TIPS OF THE TWIST-LOCKS CLOCK-WISE TO LOCK THE REELS IN PLACE. THIS ELIMINATES THE NEED FOR KEEPING UP WITH THE WHEREABOUTS OF RUBBER REEL RETAINERS.

7.      TAPE MONITOR SWITCH 

ANOTHER FEATURE YOU WON’T FIND ON EVERY DECK IS TAPE MONITOR SWITCHES (WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO MONITOR THE SOURCE AND THE TAPE AS RECORDING IS TAKING PLACE)TAPE MONITOR SWITCH SHOWN IN PHOTO # 6 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS.

TRUE TAPE MONITORING IS POSSIBLE WITH THE TEAC X-1000M.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU HAVE YOUR HEADPHONES ON AND PLUGGED IN, AND YOU ARE LISTENING TO AND  RECORDING A FM SIGNAL, YOU CAN MONITOR NOT ONLY THE EXACT QUALITY OF THE FM SIGNAL AS IT COMES INTO THE TAPE RECORDER, BUT ALSO THE EXACT FM SOUND QUALITY THAT IS GOING ONTO THE TAPE,  AS IT IS BEING RECORDED !!!!!

I USE A FM SIGNAL AS AN EXAMPLE OF A “SOURCE” IN THIS CASE.  BUT ANY SOURCE CAN BE MONITORED ON THE TEAC  X-1000M  (33 RPM  RECORD, CD, FM, OR EVEN ANOTHER TAPE RECORDER CAN BE A SOURCE COMING INTO THE TAPE DECK TO BE RECORDED AND  MONITORED).

AS YOU ARE RECORDING, YOU CAN PRESS THE MONITOR SWITCH “IN" OR "OUT", WITHOUT DISTURBING THE ACTUAL RECORDING PROCESS.  WHEN YOU PRESS THE MONITOR SWITCH “IN”, YOU ARE THEN LISTING TO THE EXACT FM SIGNAL COMING INTO THE TAPE RECORDER.  AND WHEN YOU PRESS THE MONITOR SWITCH "OUT", YOU WILL IMMEDIATELY BE LISTENING TO THE ACTUAL TAPE RECORDING THAT IS BEING MADE, ABOUT 0.2 SECONDS (@ 7-1/2 IPS, AFTER ACTUAL RECORDING).  THE ADVANTAGE IS THAT YOU CAN EASILY COMPARE THE “QUALITY OF THE SOURCE” TO THE “QUALITY OF THE TAPE RECORDING”AS IT IS BEING RECORDED.  AND, IF YOU DESIRE, YOU CAN ADJUST THE RECORD LEVEL UP OR DOWN WHILE RECORDING (IN AN EFFORT TO HAVE THE TAPE COME AS CLOSE TO THE SOUND QUALITY OF THE SOURCE SIGNAL AS POSSIBLE).

8.      FRONT PANEL HEADPHONE AND MICROPHONE JACKS 

SOME TAPE DECKS DON’T EVEN PROVIDE MICROPHONE JACKS FOR MAKING LIVE RECORDINGS, OR HEADPHONE JACKS FOR SILENT LISTENING OR MONITORING PURPOSED DURING RECORDING.  THE X-1000M NOT ONLY HAS BOTH, BUT ALSO PUTS THEM RIGHT UP FRONT ON THE FACEPLATE IN A HANDY POSITION, LOWER LEFT HAND CORNER OF THE DECK FOR THE MICS, LOWER RIGHT HAND CORNER FOR THE HEADPHONES.  SEE PHOTO # 4 MIC JACKS, AND HEADPHONE JACKS.

9.      UP-RIGHT OR HORIZONTAL OPERATION 

THE TEAC X-1000M TAPE DECK IS DESIGNED TO OPERATE IN EITHER THE UP-RIGHT, VERTICAL POSITION, OR THE HORIZONTAL POSITION.  TEAC PROVIDED FOUR “FEET” ON THE BACK OF THE TAPE DECK HOUSING TO LIFT THE DECK OFF OF THE SURFACE, WHEN THE DECK IS RESTED IN A HORIZONTAL FASHION, TO ALLOW FOR PROPER VENTILATION. THE UP-RIGHT POSITION IS PREFERRED FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE MOST EFFICIENT VENTILATION. 

10.  PITCH CONTROL 

PITCH CONTROL IS A HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER FEATURE, WHICH IS NORMALLY ONLY FOUND IN MORE EXPENSIVE RECORDERS.  LET’S SAY YOU HAD AN OLD TAPE RECORDER, MANY YEARS AGO.  AND FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER (MAYBE THE BELTS WERE A BIT WORN OR A LITTLE STRETCHED) AND THE RECORDINGS MADE ON IT TURNED OUT SOUNDING  JUST A LITTLE BIT SLOWER, WHEN PLAYED ON ANOTHER TAPE RECORDER.  THOSE TAPES CAN EASILY BE ADJUSTED TO SOUND PERFECT, USING THE PITCH CONTROL. YOU SIMPLY TURN THE PITCH CONTROL KNOB UNTIL THE SOUND IS PERFECT. 

OR MAYBE YOU HAVE AN OLD TAPE THAT IS WOUND SO TIGHT THAT WHEN PLAYED, IT SOUNDS A BIT SLOW. MAYBE IT’S A ½ MIL TAPE.  THE PITCH CONTROL FEATURE WILL CORRECT THAT PROBLEM  JUST BY TURNING THE PITCH CONTROL KNOB.  (PITCH CONTROL SHOWN IN  PHOTO # 4 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS.)

11.  SUPERIOR TENSION ARM DESIGN 

TENSION ARMS TAKE UP TAPE SLACK, STABILIZE TAPE MOVEMENT, AND STOP THE TAPE DECK IF THE TAPE BREAKS OR THE TAPE RUNS OUT.  THE X10R TENSION ARM  DESIGN IS SUPERIOR TO OTHER COMPETITIVE  DESIGNS, BECAUSE THE X-1000M EMPLOYS SMOOTHED CHANNELED  ROLLERS THAT GENTLY ROTATE ALONG WITH THE TAPE MOVEMENT, AND ADJUST TO THE TENSION THAT IS PLACED ON THE TAPE. THIS SUPERIOR DESIGN  CONTRIBUTES GREATLY TO THE PRESERVATION  AND PROTECTION OF YOUR TAPES(X-1000M TENSION ARMS IN ACTION IN PHOTO # 1 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS.)

12.  INERTIA ROLLERS 

THE X-1000M INERTIA TAPE ROLLERS TURN WITH THE TAPE AND HELP TO STABLIZE TAPE BOUNCE FOR SMOOTH TAPE RUNNING; SIMPLY ANOTHER REFINEMENT TO THIS ALREADY SUPERIOR TAPE RECORDER. (THE INERTIA ROLLERS SHOWN, IN ACTION, JUST TO THE INSIDE OF THE TENSION ARMS, IN PHOTO # 1 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS.)

13.  DUAL CAPSTAN DRIVE 

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES OF THE X-1000M IS IT'S “DUAL CAPSTAN CLOSED-LOOP SYSTEM”.  TO RECORD AND PLAY TAPES, THE TAPE MUST BE IN CONTACT WITH THE HEADS, OTHER WISE DROPOUTS AND IMPAIRED PERFORMANCE WILL OCCUR.   THERE ARE THREE WAYS TO MAINTAIN THIS CONTACT:  PRESSURE PADS, BACK TENSION, AND THE DUAL CAPSTAN CLOSED-LOOP SYSTEM.  PRESSURE PADS ARE THE EASIEST FOR A MANUFACTURER TO INCORPORATE INTO A TAPE DECK.  BUT THE PERFORMANCE IS GENERALLY CONSIDERED UNSATISFACTORY.  BACK TENSION IS MORE COMPLEX IN DESIGN, BUT GIVES EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE.  THE MOST SOPHISTICATED AND THE SUPERIOR DESIGN METHOD IS THE DUAL CAPSTAN CLOSED-LOOP SYSTEM.  WITH THE DUAL CAPSTAN APPROACH, THE TAPE IS KEPT TAUT ACROSS THE HEADS BY HAVING TWO PINCH ROLLERS/CAPSTANS WHICH ROTATE AT VERY SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SPEEDS; THE CAPSTAN NEAR THE TAKE UP REEL ROTATES FASTER THAN THE ONE NEAR THE SUPPLY REEL.  THIS EXPERTISE AND PRECISION GIVES THE X-1000M AN EXTREMELY LOW WOW AND FLUTTER SPEC (0.03% @ 7-1/2 I.P.S. AND 0.02% @ 15 I.P.S), THERE BY GIVING THE X-1000M A MUCH SUPERIOR SOUND PERFORMANCE THAN OTHER DECKS USING A DIFFENENT METHOD OF MAKING TAPE/HEAD CONTACT.    (SEE THE DUAL CAPSTAN PINCH ROLLERS IN PHOTO # 5 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS).

14.  PACKING AND SHIPPING OF YOU’RE X-1000M TAPE DECK RECORDER 

ALL TEAC TAPE DECKS I SELL ARE TREATED LIKE THEY WERE EXPENSIVE GLASSWARE.  AFTER PHOTOGRAPHING OF YOUR DECK TAKES PLACE (FOR THE EBAY LISTING), IT IS IMMEDIATELY ENCLOSED IN BRAND NEW CELLOPHANE, AND SEALED, SO THAT NO DUST OR MOISTURE CAN REACH THE DECK UNTIL IT IS OPENED BY YOU IN YOUR HOME.

 

 AFTER SEALING IT IN CELLOPHANE, IT IS IMMEDIATELY PLACED IN A BRAND NEW CUSTOM SHIPPING CARTON, AND SURROUNDED ON ALL SIX SIDES BY BRAND NEW CUSTOM STYROFOAM BRACES, TO INSURE IT’S SAFE JOURNEY TO YOUR HOME.  I’VE BEEN USING THESE CUSTOM STYROFOAM BRACES SINCE 2008.  MORE THAN 550 TEAC DECKS HAVE MADE THE JOURNEY

FROM ME TO THE BUYER SINCE THAT DATE; AND NOT ONE HAS SUSTAINED ANY COSMETIC DAMAGE.  TO SEE AN EXAMPLE OF APPROXIMATELY WHAT YOUR DECK WILL LOOK LIKE WHEN IT ARRIVES AND YOU OPEN THE SHIPPING CARTON, CHECK OUT PHOTO # 10 IN THE GALLERY OF PHOTOS.  ON OCCASIONS, I HAVE A TEAC DECK THAT COMES WITH IT’S ORIGINAL TEAC SHIPPING CARTON.  IN THAT EVENT,  I OFTEN PLACE THE DECK IN THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING CARTON, AND THEN PLACE THE ORIGINAL BOX IN ANOTHER BRAND NEW SHIPPING CARTON, TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL PROTECTION FOR THE ORIGINAL TEAC CARTON AND TAPE DECK.
