Tascam 85 16B Recorder Deck


⭕ The Tascam 85-16B is a 16-track record/reproduce deck, which utilizes 1-inch tape at 15 I/S (IPS or inches per second).It was one of the first production model 1 inch 16-tracks and is THE first of its kind which had class-A discreet amplifiers using Field Effect Transistors in the front ends.This means no crossovers distortion cutting into the ambience captured by the tape instead of overloading suddenly like many IC based circuits, it saturates very smoothly like the tape itself. It uses the IEC standard EQ alignment, which allows more headroom; less perceived noise and less phase shift than the traditional NAB standard, which is more common for multi-track tape machines used in the United States.They were manufactured from about 1979 to 1984.This Tascam 85-16B comes with Quantegy 499 Grand Master Gold reel, a Tascam RP-85b Amp, a Tascam DX-16B Noise Reducer and a Tascam PS-85b Power Supply Unit.
