Many Akai products were sold under the name Roberts in the US, as well as A&D in Japan, Tensai and Transonic Strato in Western Europe. During the late 1960s, Akai adopted Tandberg’s cross-field recording technologies (using an extra tape head) to enhance high frequency recording and switched to the increasingly reliable Glass and crystal (X’tal) (GX) ferrite heads a few years later. The company’s most popular products[citation needed] were the GX-630D, GX-635D, GX-747/GX-747DBX and GX-77 open-reel recorders (latter featuring an auto-loading function), the three-head, closed-loop GX-F95, GX-90, GX-F91, GX-R99 cassette decks, and the AM-U61, AM-U7 and AM-93 stereo amplifiers.

Akai manufactured and badged most of its imported hi-fi products with the Tensai brand (named after the Swiss audio and electronics distributor Tensai International. Tensai International was Akai’s exclusive distributor for the Swiss and Western European markets until 1988.
