Additional Details


Released in late 1967, the Series Q was a professional battery-portable recorder operating on 12 U2 cells or rechargeable cells (which were housed in a removable cassette). It was specially designed to achieve high standards of performance and reliability in the field and to this end, was constructed in such a way that modules could be easily replaced for servicing.
Three models were offered, Q1 was available as a single track or half track mono recorder for studio applications. Q2 was a standard twin-track model using in-line heads for stereo recording and Model QS was intended for synching with cameras using the synchropulse system.
