The M 3000 Hi Fi was available in the mid 70s and was a member of a complete line of Hi-Fi products from Telefunken, all in the same metal-plastic design.
Like many European Hi-Fi items of the 70’s this one used DIN plugs for everything – even the headphones.
The tape transport was servo controlled and featured two motors, one for the capstan and the other for both fast forward AND rewind. A remote control (cable) for all the tape transport functions was available. It was possible to mix line and microphone signals as well as doing multiplay and echo.
