Additional Details


The Ferguson 3214 was a
mid-priced domestic quarter-track recorder with three speeds (7½,
3¾ and 1
ips) and a 7″ reel capacity.
Stereo tapes could be played back using an external amplifier & speaker
via a DIN socket. The transport was press-key controlled and the amplifier
utilised only three tubes.
DIN sockets were supplied for ‘radio’ in and out, for ‘auxiliary’ and
for an external loudspeaker. The external speaker output was 3 watts maximum
across 3 ohms, and featured a two-way DIN socket.
