Basically an update of the Popular 200 & 400, one of the new features (hence the name) was automatic

Inputs were provided for mike, radio/gram and telephone adaptor and there was provision for connecting an external loudspeaker and/or amplifier.
The tape deck utilised was the BSR TD2.
Bradmatic half-track record/play and erase heads were used in the Automatic 2 while Marriott “X” type quarter-track heads were used in the Automatic 4.
