VID: Teac X-2000R transport functions

The Teac X-2000R was the top of the line of the reel to reel tape recorders made by Teac and dedicated to the HIFI enthusiasts.

It has a computerized transport control which allows to do some functions like make a cue point, go to the cue point, go to zero and the repeat function.

A cue point is a virtual mark in the tape. The repeat function works between the zero and the cue point. The deck goes from the zero point to the cue point and after that, it rewinds and starts from the zero point again and again and again until repeat button is depressed.

In the next video is shown how the repeat function works, but also the pitch control, the speed change and the direction change.
