Default Re: Teac X1000R

Yes, and as I recall I ended up using belts from a supplier in the US, that were supposed to be for the reversing deck, on a single-direction model as they were closer to that spec and would not behave on the R. I would not have taken as deep an interest had a nearly-new X-1000 not been my first reasonable recorder when I was 14, that turned in some eminently satisfactory results while I was learning to record. It was something of a disappointment, when I first opened it up, to discover the distinctly lightweight capstan drive setup that lay within.
