Additional Details


Introduced at the London Audio Fair held at the Hotel Russell in April 1961, this monster boasted a 10 watt output and an acoustically-designed reflex loudspeaker system.
The Collaro Studio deck was again utilized, this time with three heads which, coupled with the separate record and playback electronics, gave full off-the-tape monitoring.
Available in either half or quarter-track mono versions, the Sound Master featured three speeds with mixing and superimposition possibilities.
As you can see, this was a massive piece of equipment, weighing over 100 lbs (48 kg) and standing 40″ tall (over 1 meter!)
Price when new was £110 5s.
