Additional Details


The OKI 300 was a solid-state, portable quarter-track stereo tape recorder, complete with two detachable speaker enclosures (each containing a 5″ speaker) which formed the lid to the recorder when not in use.
The unit featured a rather unconventional set of transport function controls
in the form of four levers, two on each side of the head block assembly.
Features included two speeds (7½ & 3¾ ips), sound-on-sound,
sound-with-sound, auto shut-off, tape counter, two heads and one motor.
Made in Japan, OKI was distributed in the USA by the Chancellor Electronics of Newark, New Jersey.
Price when new, $219.95 (1966 HiFi/Stereo Review tape recorder Annual).
The model 300-D was identical to the above recorder but without power
amplifiers and speakers and sold for $159.95.
