The Saba 305S was a stereo quarter track tape recorder, also available in half track, 305 SH.
Featuring two 5W amplifiers and a pair of 5 ohm speakers, it was a standalone entertainment system that had inputs for phono, radio and microphone.
An attractive machine with its wood base and modern appearance, it certainly wasn’t leading edge as it was only a 2 head machine, with a combined record/play head, as well as just one motor.
