The TP-50R was a transistorised mono recorder with a single speed which could be varied to compensate for battery conditions.
Power was supplied by two 1.5V C cell batteries (for the motor) and one 9-V battery for the amplifier.
A single input could be used for mic or radio and an earphone socket was provided for monitoring or playback through a larger amplifier.
