The Sanyo MR 929 was an all solid-state quarter-track stereo tape recorder with playing speeds of 7½ and 3¾ ips. It looked like the designers had ‘borrowed’ a bit of everything – edge VU meters from Uher and Brenell, the joystick and sliding record control switches from Tandberg and overall styling from Sony.
