Combined Akai X-2000SD reel to reel, cassette and 8 track cartridge player with speakers. General note: Accessories accompany the Akai and there are also two spare cartridges.

The Akai X 2000SD was manufactured in the mid 1970s (circa 1973) and combined the 3 consumer tape formats available at the time in the one unit. The cassette mechanism is beneath the headblock for the reel to reel machine. The 8 track cartridge mechanism is in the right hand side of the machine. All 3 transports are driven from one set of motors. The deck could dub from reel to reel to either cassette or cartridge and had a built in stereo amplifier and 2 x 4" speakers.
