A half-track mono recorder
with four speeds: 15/16, 1,
3¾ and 7½ ips.
A single large knob (on the lower left of the recorder) handled all tape
motion functions: fast forward, rewind, play and record with a neutral
position for stop. The square button to the right of the function
knob is a record interlock to prevent accidental erasures.
Front panel jacks were for mic and external speaker, the single knob
at the right hand side was the on/off/volume control and a single neon
lamp indicated record level.
This was a fairly low-budget, single motor, two head recorder with only
three tubes and a 4″ P.M. speaker.
