Additional Details


The 3000D (precursor to the 4000D) was a four-track stereo tape deck with no power amplifiers or loudspeakers and not even any playback volume controls, but it was packed into an attractive compact, walnut-grained cabinet and had all the tape facilities needed in a home music system.
The recorder could be mounted vertically or horizontally and  the inputs and outputs were located in a recessed panel on the left-hand side—all except the two microphone input jack sockets which were on the deck itself.
Separate record and replay heads and pre-amplifiers were fitted so that accurate A-B testing could be achieved via a switch on the front panel of the deck.
