“…Judging from the internal design of this machine it is made in the late 50’s. It operates with a kind of cartridge similar to those used by Garrard but just a little bit smaller. The idea obviously is to make it easy to operate (not one for the HI-FI nuts). Regular 3” reels can be used without any trouble.
