Description

The N4404 was an all-transistor 4-track stereo recorder with two speeds (7½ and 3¾ ips), a
single motor and two heads and was the economy version of the N4407.
The recorder was designed to be used in either vertical or horizontal position and could accommodate 7″ reels.
Other features included single illuminated VU meter, tone control (playback only), 2½ watts per channel output with straight-through amplifier facility, twin 6 x 4″ speakers, input mixing and parallel track replay.

At around £80 (with a mono moving-coil cardioid microphone), this was the least expensive stereo Philips tape recorder available in the (UK) during the late 60’s/early 70’s range and was available up until about 1972.
