Additional Details


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.
