TEAC - The History of Recording and Sound (Part 4)
TEAC A-4010 – a Tape Deck for everybody
In the 1960s, the average household could enjoy music using various different formats, in line with the technological booms of record players, radio and then tape.
TEAC's A-4010 was a 4 track tape deck that matched American interior design while being robust and easy to operate for a price that the average family could afford, according to it's designers at the time. This consumer-driven concept helped the A-4010 to gain popularity and sell over 200,000 units, becoming one of TEAC's best selling products, as well as signaling the beginning of the audio tape era.
Subsequent open-reel tape decks, such as the A-6010, helped to secure TEAC's position as one of the best tape deck makers in the world.
At the TEAC HQ in Tokyo, the very last A-4010 series model produced is on display at the entrance, with a special commemorative badge. If you are ever in Tokyo, come and check it out!
