This well-built deck is well-known in the audio sound world for its excellent sound quality and reliability, and the tape recorder is a precisely engineered audio sound piece of HIFI equipment that makes a great addition to any vintage audio system. 

Technics RS-1500US Stereo Open Reel Tape Recorder (1977-1987) 

Technics released seven different open reel tape deck models, starting in late 1977 and the remainder in 1978. The RS-1500 came first and shortly thereafter the RS-1506, RS-1520, RS-1700, RS-1800, RS-777, and Technics RS-10A02 R&B Series for professional recording music studios. 

The Technics single capstan system offered advantages over double capstan as variations in the speed of two capstans and the pressure of the two pinch rollers to maintain the desired temp tape tension makes speed and tension adjustment complex and difficult often increasing the tape tension which is not desirable. The relatively long distance between the two capstans over which the tape must stretch contributes to higher modulation noise and scrape flutter. In contrast, the Technics single capstan system maintains exactly the same speed and pinch roller pressure on both sides of the capstan. The wide contact area between the pinch rollers and the single extra-large capstan allows for lower tape tension, about 80 g and is very steady because the tape path between the capstan and the reversing roller is relatively short. So modulation noise, wow & flutter and level fluctuations are dramatically reduced. Add to this the quartz locked slow speed direct capstan drive system, aided by a tension-controlled direct drive reel motors and air-dampened tension rollers the Technics isolated loop system achieves excellent overall performance.
