Description

The trend in Philips towards
all-transistor mains tape recorders in their higher priced models was
extended with the introduction of the quarter-track EL3549, the successor
to the EL3542.
It was a mid-priced, four speed machine (7½, 3¾, 1
& 15/16 ips) with a moving coil recording
level meter replacing the magic eye indicator and a four-digit tape position
counter.
A single internal 7″ x 5″ elliptical speaker was powered by
a 2½ watt all-transistorised amplifier, and by using an external
stereo amp/speaker system, stereo playback was possible.
For more information on this recorder, see the specifications and vintage
test report below.
