The Pioneer RT-909 Reel Tape Recorder, an auto-reverse / auto repeat-playback stereo tape deck produced from 1979 until 1984, has 4 heads with reverse playback (erase, record and two playback).

A closed-loop dual-capstan drive system isolated the tape at the heads from any external interference, which resulted in constant tape-to-head contact. Rack-mountable and designed to take 10½ ” reels, Pioneer also produced a non-auto reverse model, the RT-901.

Independent microphone and line mixing inputs, Azimuth adjustments for the heads, Fluroscan meter, 4-digit tape counter, Timer start switch
