Marantz Beta VCR
model VR-200. From 1982. Price was $1,295. Sanyo made VCR, very similar to
the Sanyo's top loaders. This one offered
two track liner stereo, tuner is mono. The only stereo Beta VCR without Hi-Fi.
Various of VHS manufactures did put out quite a few VHS VCRS that were stereo without Hi-Fi. If you come across one of these, more than likely the
belts will need to be replaced. Bad, dried out belts will result weak, fast
forward/rewind, weak or no rew search in play mode, eating tapes, problems
at times loading tapes.
