Tandberg, Teac, ReVox and Technics

My first RTR was a Tandberg (model ? - 9000 series?) that I purchased back in about 1974. I thought it was great - onboard Dolby B, crossfield head recording, peak limiting meters....great bells and whistles. Unfortunately, as the Tandberg service center guy told me, it was built with what he described as "beer cans" and it didn't hold up to my use of it. Replaced it with what I could, a Teac 3300, which was also a good deck, but lacked onboard Dolby. That unit died in the early 80s...and I exited the RTR world until I found out that eBay had brought an active market into being.

So a maybe ten years ago I acquired a very nice ReVox A77 (always wanted one) to play my existing tapes, and then a Technics RS1520, which is dedicated to Tape Projects tapes.

I would still love another Tandberg, with onboard Dolby.
