I always thought Teac made it for RS,from the Teac models you mentioned,I believe the differences are only on the skin-side,they may well be the same chassis under the plastic/skin,just different shapes of buttons and color of the plastic.. Rob

realistic tr-3000

i always thought that because teac was making it for another company they were either putting more quality or less quality into, thats all i wanted to know, and i wanted to know what other people such as yourself though of the machine.

This is the machine which became the X-3 after they sold so well that Teac decided to begin selling them as Teacs. Good sounding machine when in nice condition. Weakness is the capstan motor/motor switch. Parts still available new from Teac. Use only Teac drive belts and change them every 3-5 years of use. The X-300 added EE tape capability (I owned one of those from new).

Also the Teac versions are available with optional auto reverse. Designated by the R after the model #.

Radio Shack went to Teac with a design & specs & had them make it exclusivly for Radio Shack. Radio Shack discontinued it after 2 years. After that Teac brought it out under their name & could be gotten with auto-reverse.
