Telefunken RC-300 3 motor direct Multidrive Stereo Cassette Deck, 1980, made in Germany


The RC 300 is arguably one of the best, luxurious...and most expensive tape decks Telefunken has ever built. No tape deck before or after had a longplay option, or a three-motor mechanics. The drive mechanism is the MultiDrive mechanism that was developed by Papst, a company that is today still known for the quality of their fans. With a separate motor for the capstan and each reel, there is no need for belts or rubber rolls, all controls are done electronically and there are much fewer parts that can fail.
The RC 300 was part of Telefunken's T 300 high-end component system, and it has a remote control input that allows the drive functions to be controlled via the RP 300 pre-amplifier.
