So far, this is the only tape recorder brand we know of that was manufactured in France. References in American buyers guides speak of the 800 series that sold for around $1000. The earliest mention was in 1970, yet three years later high Fidelity magazine suggested an 800 model would be available later in 1973, in the US market.
Henri Cote & Cie manufactured these tape recorders in Bourg-la-Reine, a suburb of Paris, France
So questions remain – How many models of tape recorders did they make?
Were there any other tape recorders that were launched in France?
