Carad Professional - R73 - 2-track -Double Capstan- Serviced - Tape Deck 26 cm

This restored beauty is built indestructibly and delivers top quality on 2 tracks!
Equipped with 3 heads (in exceptionally good condition), 3 sturdy motors and even better built than the Revox A77 series, this professional Carad also has: Double active capstans, Adjustable display head on the front (Patent by Carad), Illuminated touch keys , a pause button, space to add more cups, auto-stop sensor (for aluminum walk-in strip), even better accessibility of the electronics!
The device is aesthetically, electrically and mechanically in exceptionally good condition! All buttons are creak-free! Recently, ALL electrolytic capacitors of ALL 6-pull-out printed circuit boards were renewed, as well as the button print and preamplifiers. After extensive testing, recording/playback is completely equal (with good tapes, of course). Flushing FFW and FBW is super fast and braking is synchronous.
In my opinion (technician) that device is the best built recorder ever to easily reach all boards, you can simply open (turn) the main motherboard. In short, this is a rare (especially the wooden formwork), very well built and extremely strong device, intended for the professional market and sound freaks.
Was never used in a studio or catering, only privately! Smoke free and very clean.
Tape speeds: 19/9.5cm/sec

Note: With new power cord and dust cover. The coils and adapters shown are not included in the sale (only for presentation).
Due to the large weight (26 kg), shipping to islands is considerably more expensive: within the EU: 85 €, outside the EU: 290 €
Note: Please take a good look at the photos, they are part of the description.
Any import duties are always at the expense of the buyer. Will be packaged very well,
