Additional Details

Description

A single motor, three speed
all-solid-state recorder built to professional standards with automatic
threading and auto- reverse facility.
The tape was led round the curved face of the head block and dropped
into a straight slot which ran from the top to the bottom of the box-like
casing that replaced the take-up spool on the right hand side of the recorder.
Inside this box was a single flanged spool with a castellated hub which
grabbed the tape and began winding it without any further assistance.
The right hand spool could be replaced with a conventional type (top
left) or using the enclosed auto-takeup arrangement (below left)
