Additional Details


Production of the Kometa 212-stereo” started in 1975. It was manufactured in the TochMash plant located in Novosibirsk. This tape recorder could be used in mono or stereo and had built-in speakers. Curiously it has power setting for 127 V at 50 cycles. Not sure where that might be useful but certainly not in North America.
