This gorgeous little single speed, half-track mono machine – a very early offering from Stuzzi – was entirely encased in metal and had no internal speaker. The single-ended EL41 amplifier produced around 4 watts.
The controls consisted of five push-buttons for rewind, record, stop, playback & fast forward plus a volume control. Record level modulation was indicated by means of an EM72 magic eye.
The on/off slide switch can be seen at the lower right rear in the picture at left.
Valve complement: EF40, ECC40, EL41, EZ80, EM72 / Dimensions: 14.6 x 4.7 x 9.4 inches (370 x 120 x 240 mm) / half-track mono
