This reel to reel and 8-track combo deck is an updated version of the original X-1820SD. Uses improved Glass & X'tal heads and better electronics (like no capstan sleeve required for switching speeds).
Super durable and top performing Glass & X'Tal (GX) tape heads.
Early reel to reel and 8-track cartridge combo deck from Akai. Followed by the X-1800SD and the GX-2800 decks.
Built-in amplifier and speakers.
Crossfield head designed allowed for improved high frequency response.
Improved on the earlier "X" series decks. No need to place a sleeve over the capstan shaft to change speeds.
Top performing deck in a smaller chassis size helped eliminate the common "I moved my deck now I have a hernia" complaint.
