Sony TC-854-4 Four Channel Solid State Stereo Tapecorder (1973-74)


The Sony model 854-4 is one of the most professional tape recorders in the world. The three-motor and four-head model 854-4 accommodates up to 10-1/2" reels and operates at speeds of 15, 7-1/2 and 3-3/4 ips. The model is designed for recording and playback of ordinary 4-track 2-channel stereo as well as 4-channel Quadradial stereo.

Special features of the model 854-4 include:

  • An AC servo-controlled capstan drive motor prevents speed variation regardless of voltage or load changes.
  • Dual capstan closed-loop tape drive assures positive tape-to-head contact while isolating external vibration.
  • Logic controlled transport function permits switching the tape transport from fast forward to rewind or from either of these modes to play mode without going into the stop mode.
  • Automatic Program Scanner and Automatic Tape Stop provide program cueing by simply depressing the respective button after a tape is loaded.
  • Syncro-Trek to allow synchronous recording of new tracks with previously recorded tracks
  • Microphone and line input mixing
  • Tape lift switch for tape cueing and editing
  • Tape equalization selector switch for Sony Low-noise High-output tape and standard tape.
  • For Quadradial stereo recording and playback, the full width of a tape is used; tracks 1 and 3 are for the front channels and tracks 2 and 4 are for the rear channels.
