stereo tapes through an external preamplifier.
Other features included “duo-play” and “multi-play”,
mixing of inputs, pause button, connection for foot switch, recording
level meter and auto- stop at the end of the tape when in record, playback,

The 2.5 watt amplifier could be used in ‘straight-through’ mode.
