I found these two reel to reel 1/4" decks by searching using Google (you
might be able to find more using the same):
Teac A6100 Tape deck 1/2trk Mint+ $750
Teac A7010GSL Tape deck Mint+ $950
I have one of the A6100's and can say it is and excellent deck and I
think I read that this transport was the predecessor of the Tascam
multitrack if I'm not mistaken. Teac calls it "Master Recorder", so
mastering (not mention playback) is excellent. It has four heads: two
and four track playback heads and two track record and erase heads. It
handles 7 & 10 1/2' reels and runs at 7 1/2 and 15IPS.
This is the web site I pulled up:

They're in Tennessee and specialize in Macintosh audio equipment. This
is their home web page:
