From the collection of Johan Van Der Levin in Sweden.
He writes: “… This tape-recorder is very different from the newer Luxors. The operating knob works like on the Grundig TK 5, but on the MP 363, you can start the winding mechanism direct. On TK 5, you have a special knob for this operation. The MP 363 doesn’t have the “gear-knob”, like the newer ones. I also have the MP 423, and an MP 411. (You can play stereo tapes on this one, but just record in mono.) …”
