Additional Details


Apparently there were over 10 different versions of the 610 available.

The STM-600 & STM-610 (stereo) were later models that were standalone tape recorders modular in design and had some upgrades and could work with earlier production models, the STM 200 & 210.
Apparently these early models had been quite successful selling over 8000 units.

The STM-600 & STM-610 had servo control motors and heads made of Recovac?
