The Akai GX-650D Reel to Reel Tape Recorder was a high-quality, almost semi-professional tape deck with 3 speeds (3¾ , 7½ and 15 ips) and a belt-driven, dual capstan mechanism giving a totally symmetrical tape path. The main motor was servo-controlled, with both pinch rollers being activated by their own solenoids. Another solenoid pulled the tape guides with another releasing the brakes.

Rapid change between tape functions was possible thanks to a ‘Hall’ sensor near the left reel motor which checked if the left reel table was moving. If a new function was selected, the sensor would activate immediately once the brakes had brought the tape to a standstill. Other features included sound-on-sound and a cueing function.
