Fostex Model 80

Fostex Model 80

The Fostex 80 was a later model deck that uses the LED VU meters. While accurate, there are several sections of LEDs burned out on this deck, just like every other Fostex deck we’ve had through our shop in the last 10 years. The heads are in good shape, and the deck comes with the original Fostex metal takeup reel as shown.

The frequency response is excellent per channel (two channels shown), and has that typical 50-80hz bass boost by about 3db, making kick drums and the bass sound ‘phatter’ coming off the tape.
