Additional Details


An impressive and versatile
four channel recorder with Multi-sync recording, postion/repeat play memory,
solenoid controls and impressive specifications.
From an equipment test report by Hirsch-Houck Laboratories (1976)
“…. We found the tape-loading process
to be exceptionally simple, even for someone with more than the normal
quota of thumbs. All solenoid-controlled recorders emit an audible “clunk”
when their control buttons are operated, and this one is no exception.
In any event, none of the acoustic output of the solenoids affects the
taped program. All in all, the performance, versatility and striking physical
design of the Dokorder 1140 add up to make it an outstanding value despite
its not inconsiderable price…..”
The complete test report is supplied on the Get Reel Contemporary Classics
