Here’s something different and a bit of fun!
I’ve only ever seen one other machine like this and that was the Beocord Unitape 512K by Bang & Olufsen from around about the same time as this AEG.
The price in 1952 was DM 775. with the turntable an extra DM 45. and the microphone approx. DM 20.
The turntable diameter was 12.5 cm and the overall weight of the machine was 10 kg.
