Wireless Remote Control Adapter for Akai tape decks
Add wireless remote capability to your Akai tape deck that says on the back that it needs the RC-18, RC-19, RC-20 or RC-70R remotes like the GX-266II, GX-270D/D-SS, GX-520, GX-620, GX-625, GX-630D/DB/D-SS, GX-635D, GX-636DB, GX-650D reel to reel decks and the GXC-570D, GXC-760D, GX-F80 and GX-F90 cassette decks. Not compatible with the GX-255. I can special make a version for the GX-255, but, you need to contact me.
Please be aware that I make each remote adapter custom when the order comes in. It could take up to about 10 business days before it ships.
This is not an original Akai RC-70, but, a compatible unit that performs the same functions.
This unit works just like the original Akai RC-70 wired remote. It plugs into the back of the tape decks and allows the transport functions (play, stop, record, fast forward, rewind, pause* and reverse play* *-pause and reverse play only works on decks with these functions) to be controlled wirelessly from across the room. Comes with a DirecTV RC65 universal remote, but, you can use just about any universal remote on the market. Just set it for one of the Sony VCR button codes.
I've been making wireless remote adapters since 2006 with more than 1500 units shipped worldwide. I am an electrical engineer and started making unit for Nakamichi cassette decks for people on the NakTalk email list. Over the years my customers have asked me to make similar units for other models and brands of audio gear. I now make over 15 models of remote adapters for 10 different brands (Aiwa, Akai, Ampex, Crown, Nakamichi, Otari, Revox, Studer, Tascam and Teac). I typically sell through , but, low volume models are only sold direct. If you don't see a remote adapter for your equipment ask me, I might have one already.
