Sony Betamax Hi-Fi
SL-2700. Introduced in 1984 with a price tag of
$1500. The Second Sony Betamax Hi-Fi VCR. Pretty much the Same Chassis and
physical appearance as the Sony Betamax
SL-2500. This Betamax has most of the same features as the
by frame, slow motion also x1 x2 speeds, these features are called swing
search and can be done in forward and reverse. Index to mark tapes etc. Pause, slow motion features on this VCR
are very stable, a still picture with no noise. Unit has two different
doors, when tape is loaded the "Cassette is inside Betamax" door comes up.
SL-2500 and SL-2700 Betamax recorders were the only VCRS to have two
different doors. Very modern VCR for it's time. This VCR Also has a 10
minute on board battery backup incase of a power surge, this was good for
keeping the programmed
recording events, and the time.
