My collection of Quick Reference Guides


THIS SITE IS NOT OPTIMIZED FOR VIEWING ON A PHONE. USE A LARGER SCREEN FOR BEST RESULTS.

These handy Quick Reference Guides are PDF's that I made myself but are based on the original Service Manuals. They typically contain diagrams, handy circuit board layouts that I made, instructions, partlists and sometimes other information not found in the Service Manual.
The QRG's are useful when servicing the reel-to-reel tape deck in question. These QRG's are to be used alongside the Service Manual.

As these QRG's are constantly updated with new information and errata, be sure to download the latest version each time you need them.

IF you have any errata, or other remarks, please contact me at
