Akai CR-83D 8-Track Tape Recorder

Akai CR-83D 8-Track Tape Recorder

This 1974 Akai CR-83D 8-track tape recorder / player is an awesome standalone unit with super-sleek looks and high-quality recording and playback. The perfect device to enjoy your old 8-tracks on, the Akai CR-83D has twin lighted analog needle VU meters that monitor both recording and playback, separate left and right record level control knobs, multiple play modes and auto stop function, pause and fast-forward capabilities, and a cool lighted counter timer that looks and works like a real clock.

Akai CR-83D 8-Track Recorder

The Akai CR-83D has stereo rca inputs and outputs, so it can be easily integrated into modern stereo systems and makes recording to 8-track a snap. Transfer your CDs, cassettes, albums, mp3s, or mix down your band's demo tape to 8-track! The Akai CR-83D measures 16 7/8 inches x 8 3/4 inches x 4 1/4 inches. This unit is fully tested, cleaned and inspected inside and out. Playback is beautiful, a classic bass-heavy 8-track sound with no track bleeding or noticeable wobble. Recording works perfectly, too. I connected a CD player to the rca inputs, made a couple of "mix tapes" for personal use, and the resulting recordings sounded very clean and clear, better than any of the old 8-tracks in my collection. Of course, you can't be driving down to your local Radio Shack to pick up a pack of Realistic 8-Track tapes these days, but you can find a wide variety of affordable blank 8-track cartridges on eBay.
