Additional Details


Although solid state, it is one of the most beautiful reel to reels I have ever seen.  There
were two detachable speakers that comprised the lid when transporting and a high quality amplifier with inputs for tuner, microphone, line and turntable.
Price when new was around UK £145.
Flemming Sorensen of Denmark owns several such machines and he writes:

“What a wonderful machine! It came in 4 versions: The standard, and the deluxe and both were available in a case with speakers in the lid, or in a cabinet of palisander with an acrylic lid, that fitted fine
together with modern furniture.
