Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Posted by Anonymous on
In short, no. if you look closely you will see the Teac 3340 has a much larger/thicker capstan shaft than other Teac reel decks. This feature allows the faster tape speeds...7 1/2 and 15 ips. In order to slow down the Teac 3340 you would have to change the flywheel to one from another deck that was made to run at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2. Which is possible but some work..plus you would have to find a slower speed flywheel from another Teac deck. Also to maintain performance, the bias and Eq positions for the slower speeds would have to be readjusted from 7 1/2 and 15.

There is no adapter to play tapes slower on this unit. There are other Teac models like the A330S or A2300S that can do it. You need to match up your tapes to the proper machine.
On another note some people record the high speed audio into their computer and then use software to cut the speed in half- that should work as well. A lot of trouble though.

No, that would require slowing the capstan or making its diameter smaller for the rpms it turns now. Sorry.
