One of the top recorders
in the Philips 1972 range, this tape-deck exceeded the DIN 45 500 (Hi-Fi)
Finished in a black polystyrene cabinet with walnut-veneered wooden side
panels and a black lacquered metal top plate with aluminium trimmings,
the N4510 was designed for either horizontal or vertical operation.
On the technical design front the unit had three separate heads (allowing
A/B monitoring), three motors (including an electronically-governed capstan
motor) and four-track mono/stereo recording and playback.
Other features included multiplay, mixing, echo effects, automatic end
of tape stop, illuminated finger-tip-touch transport function switches,
a 4-digit position indicator, precise slider-type controls, tape tension
comparators for constant torque, headphones output with volume and balance
control and a full function (optional) remote control.
