One of the first Philips
stereophonic recorders, the EL 3536 was proudly advertised as having..
“…every modern technical development, including stereophony,
here in one revolutionary recorder that leads the way into an exciting
new era of sound recording…”
This was a four-track mono, half-track stereophonic recorder with three
speeds. 7½, 3¾ and 1
ips. Audio output was 4 watts per channel with two speakers, one in the
front of the recorder and one in the lid. Recording level was indicated
by a magic eye and 7″ tape reels could be accommodated.
