(1992-1996)

This model was another superior cassette dictating machine, very much in the mould of the TCM-59V. The basic formula was much the same, but as it was the top of the range offering the TCM-77V added logic controls, a cue marker system and a large multi-function LCD display to the mix. Although the two models were not mechanically identical, the principles of operation were very similar, in particular the use of an unusual auto-reverse mechanism where both capstans rotated in the same direction and the motor was reversed at the end of each side of the cassette.

The TCM-77V was finished to a very high standard with a metal cassette door and a high quality plastic body with polished surfaces. It was also excellent in terms of functionality and ergonomics, making it a very worthy top model. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
