A clone of the Austrian-made Stella St 459 (which itself was a clone of the Philips EL3549), this Hornyphon was an all transistor, four speed recorder with a “stereo” output socket for the reproduction of pre-recorded
stereo tapes through an external preamplifier.
Other features included “duo-play” and “multi-play”, mixing of inputs, pause button, connection for foot switch, recording level meter and auto- stop at the end of the tape when in record, playback, fast wind or fast rewind position.
The 2.5 watt amplifier could be used in ‘straight-through’ mode..
