TK 145 was a budget, solid state 4-track mono recorder with a single speed of
3¾ ips and a 5¾ . inch reel capacity.
A single motor and two heads were incorporated
into the design, other features included automatic recording level and
auto-stop. In the interests of economy, weight and coolness of operation, the motor and mains transformer were combined in a single unit.
‘Trick’ recording allowed sound on sound and
sound with sound could also be performed, using an external earphone and
monitor amplifier (MA2).
