Additional Details

Description

A single motor, three speed
recorder built to professional standards and performance, but with an
appearance and overall operating ease which made it an attractive proposition
to the domestic market for which it was intended.
The 2070 sold in the USA for $520.00 and close to £200 in the UK which
put it fairly and squarely at the upper end of domestic machines at that
time.
The most significant feature of this machine is the automatic threading
facility.
(see test report below for more details).
