Additional Details

Description

The stereo version of the
Mk 5.
This was a four-headed tape deck featuring two mK 5 amplifiers with power
packs mounted on a special rack.
This too was an extremely rare machine and I doubt that there were many
produced.
In fact this picture from a 1960 ‘Tape Recorder Centre’ catalogue is
the ONLY reference I have ever seen. Perhaps it was made especially for
them.
This particular version sold for £93. 16. 0 with another slightly
more expensive model featuring upper and lower heads plus stacked stereo
rec/playback head, two mK 5 amplifiers with power packs mounted on a special
rack.
