Additional Details


Based on the Philips EL3548/30 and identical to the Stella ST458  and Cossor 1604, the Hornyphon Super WM-4210T was a mono quarter-track recorder with two speeds and a seven-inch reel capacity. Styling was quite bold for 1963, with a sloping fascia control and speaker panel at the front left of the machine while the front right hand panel housed all but two of the controls, the speed selector and the track selector being the exceptions.
Push-button transport controls were, from left to right, record (red), pause, playback, fast rewind, stop and fast forward.
Stereo playback was possible using an external
pre-amplifier (type EL3587) along with an extra amplifier and speaker. “Duo-play” and “Multi-play”
were also possible with this amplifier.
