Additional Details

Description

The Mk 5 Series 3 was similar to the Mk V Series 2 but featured an all-Papst motor deck rather than AEI + Papst motors. It was also easily opened by simply releasing the two large chrome thumb nuts on the deck
front – earlier versions had to have the mask removed.
The Series 3 included both the stock two-head version with its basic amplifier and the three-head monitor version with its more complex amplifier (Mk 5M series 3).
The Series 3 also did away with the manual rewind brake control to maintain even spooling and reduce tape edge damage and print through.
