recorder performance. All mechanical parts and designs are made in their French factory.

Significant design features;

• Take-up reels are belt driven by low torque Swiss made DC motors

• Constant tape tension controlled by a unique strain-gauge microprocessor-controlled design

that maintains voltage within 1ms with an accuracy of 0.5gr.

WIFI. The integrated web server enables internal firmware and external maintenance.
