Description

This was the final recorder in the series that began with the Magnetophon 65. Over half a million had been produced since the 65’s first appearance in 1958. This was a mono half-track recorder with a maximum reel size of 5¾”. It had all the improvements of the KL75/15 plus a few of its own. The case was now square without the rounded curves, extra socketry was provided on the front panel and the specifications were slightly better all round. As far as I can tell, there were no “T” and “K ”
models, just the one version.
