Technics RS-1500 and Technics RS-1700 shown in The Natural finish


Technics RS-777-2 reel to reel and cassette deck combination is a the very first of its kind. Created by Jeff July 2018, this is truly the rarest tape deck on the planet. The unmodified Technics RS-777 was originally offered in the late 70s to early 80s. A slimmed down version of the RS-1500, this litte beauty plays 7 inch reels and has one of the smoothest auto-reverse mechanisms we have seen.

Not only are they nice to look at, they have some serious mechanical improvements over the original standard after market plastic hubs available elsewhere. Our exclusive J-Corder hubs have a much stronger spring, are build to last and have NO plastic parts.

J-Corder precision reels are made of thicker, durable high-quality metal. There are 12 fastening screws to the center hub. We offer reels in the original Technics color, gold, silver, and black.
