Description

This was one of Philips’
most popular machines, produced for several years with minor modifications
and variations throughout the early sixties.
I found this particular example in the back yard of a second hand shop,
someone had thrown it away. The owner said  –  “take it!”
A few years later I happened to chance upon an original owners manual
at a street market in Balmain, Sydney.
The EL 3541 was a quarter-track mono machine,
could handle reels up to 7″ and played at the single speed of 3¾
ips. With an external amplifier and speaker, stereo playback was possible.
