Yes.  6 track heads (one channel is split in each direction and
used to derive tracking signal to drive the azimuth adjust
servo motor).  Originally nominally flat to 20Hz - 22K.  Though
you need really high quality tapes to get that performance.  I
used chrome tapes (not chrome *biased* tapes) and could easily
"beat my ears".  Nowadays, a sheet of vinyl running at 78RPM
with a 6d *nail* could beat my ears!  :>
