Sony SL-HFR70 Super Betamax VCR

$ 689.99



The Sony SL-HFR70 is the only Hi-Fi ready unit to offer Sony's SuperBeta picture that produced dramatically sharper video images, 20% better according to Sony's advertising claims. Adding the included HFP-200 Betahi-fi stereo processor makes all your favorite hit movies and recordings sound as sharp and as thrilling as they look. This is one of the real super "sleeper" bargains in the Betamax lineup. Check out the features below, then add in Betahi-fi stereo sound and you can easily see why this would make a fine addition to any home studio. The SL-HFR70 can record and play Super Beta Hi-Fi in Beta II and Beta III. It can also play regular Beta BI. SuperBeta can be switched off for recording in regular Beta. Tapes recorded in standard Beta or standard Betahi-fi play but will not be reproduced with a SuperBeta picture. Monaural tapes will play in the SL-HFR70 with or without the hi-fi adapter but will not be in stereo.
