The Scully 270 Long Play Recorder.... is the standard of excellence in automated broadcasting. Designed to run trouble-free for long periods, the 270 is an extra-rugged, heavy-duty quality reproducer. Its features include: disc brakes; transistorized, plug-in amplifiers; one-piece solid frame construction; plug-in reel hubs; automatic start torque tension control; instant access; and reversing capability.

Using 1/4" tape, the Scully 270 is a monophonic half or full-track, and stereo two or quarter-track unit. It accepts up to a 14" reel and is available at speeds of 3 3/4 & 7 1/x ips or 7 1/2 & 15 ips.

The Scully 275....a playback-only unit, was developed in answer to the industry need for a professional, solid-state, editing machine.
