I am a bit late on the 3 3/4 issue but for the record I have several 1/4
track recorders that run at that speed. Tascam 3400 and Akai 625 are 2 of
them and they both hold up to 10" reels.
These tapes look similar so I would suspect a manufacturing link right
there. I never paid for these recorders as they were given to me by friends
and clients who cleared shop and the price was right.
