THORENS TM 1600

 EXPANSION OF THE ANALOGUE COMPETENCE

The Thorens TM 1600 tape machine, developed together with the Düsseldorf manufacturer Ballfinger, expands Thorens' analog product portfolio with an additional traditional component. The machine works in half-track mode and offers the latest technology for playing back ¼ inch tapes on spools up to 26.5 cm in size at speeds of 19 and 38 cm / s.

As befits its standing, the device is driven by three motors, but the drive is just 50 mm high. To keep the drive as compact as possible, the device has a tape path geometry with a completely new layout. The tape head and capstan motor are spatially separated from one another to a very large extent, which enables a very large signal-to-noise ratio of the audio signal.
Corrections according to NAB and CCIR can be set.
