Additional Details


As was the case with many late 1950s tape recorders, specifications don’t look particularly good but if you have a chance to listen to a restored one, you’ll realize that they really were amazing and will not disappoint in the listening room today. Very modestly priced in it’s day, Tapesonic built these to custom order.
