Description

This is a deck-only version of the 3400 X with some minor variations in the input/output socketry. The 3400X featured DIN plugs for radio, phono (pick-up) and mic inputs, whereas the 3300X had radio and mic DIN inputs but the line in/out sockets were phono-plugs. In the picture at left you can see clearly to the right of the VU meters the blank space above the Tandberg logo where the 3400 X’s output volume sliders and tone controls would normally be.
