Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

pressure pads

The use of pressure pads would qualify the Viking as a good choice for playing 4-track tapes with ripple.

My college had a Viking 88 in every library listening room. The playback head was physically switchable to play 2- or 4-track tapes. They sounded great. The console in which they were mounted had an H. H. Scott amp, a manual Garrard turntable with that miserable GE stereo cartridge, and unidentified speakers.
