Built in 1962, the TK 46
was one of Grundig’s first quarter-track stereo recorders and it is almost
identical to its half-track counterpart, the TK47.
With three heads (erase, record & playback) and three speeds (7½ ips,
3¾ ips and 1 ips),
the TK46 was much the same machine electronically as the TK 41 but with
two of everything.
The twin in-built “Hi-Fi” speakers
were satisfyingly adequate although lacked “stereo spatiality”,
however external stereo speakers could be connected via extension sockets.
