|The SL-C40 is a stereo version of the SL-C20
and SL-C30 models.
It had linear stereo and Beta noise reduction.
Other than this difference the SL-C40 was just like the SL-C20/30, a stylish slim looking basic Betamax model. These machines incorporated many features of the mechanism used in the earlier SL-C9 albeit stripped down presumably to save on manufacturing cost.
Today these machines are beginning to show their age, however they are well worth maintaining, as spare parts are still obtainable.
