Additional Details


The Amplifier Corp. of America (Amplicorp) manufactured the Magnemite recorder from about 1954 to 1958.
It was a spring-driven self-powered record and playback machine that, for it’s time, was light, small, of pleasing appearance and good performance.

Weighing about 19 lbs it was considered very portable and was deemed to be of “broadcast standard.”
The tape transport was powered by a flyball governed spring motor giving about three minutes playtime at each cranking.
A warning light flickered when re-cranking was necessary, but before any speed change was noticeable, so that a re-crank was possible while the machine ran.
