  • Akai X-150D

    Got this back up to spec and it sounds and records amazing. I mainly have it to play the 3 3/4 ips recordings that my Otari machine will not.

    Lots of stuff!

    Nice. I used to own an Akai with built in amp and speaker of similar vintage. You should find a working GX-77 for the 7" reel commercial tapes. I like it better than the GX-747 for being quieter transport with equally good sound not to mention how smaller it is. Ki

        The GX-77 is a great machine. I have a few reel to reel players and I restored this particular Akai because it was the first machine my father had owned.

          That was the deck-only version of the Roberts 771X (which "evolved" into transistorized status in 1968; after being based on the tube Roberts 770X/Akai M-8). You know(?): there was a 15ips adapter capstan sleeve and smaller pinch roller which originally came with those, too.
