Additional Details


Assembled/manufactured by Carad. Kuurne (Belgium) sometime around 1949-1950 using the US-manufactured Brush “Soundmirror” BK 416 tape deck (one of the very first commercially produced tape mechanisms). Ever thing else (the power supply, case and all record and playback electronics) was manufactured and assembled by Carad. The simple joystick transport control consisted of play, fast forward, rewind and stop, an idea later adopted by Tandberg. The amplifier produced 1-watt output and the machine was fitted with a 3.5 x 5.7-inch (90 x 145mm) speaker.
