Description

A two-speed, 4-track mono recorder, “ideal for the enthusiast beginner”, to quote Pye’s promotional brochure.
Stereo (pre-recorded) tapes could be played back with the addition of an external stereo pre-amplifier and audio amplifier.
This was, in fact, nothing more than a re-packaged Philips N4308 (see picture below) and was also sold in Sweden under the DUX label.
