The Magnetophon 85 De-Luxe was the last of Telefunken’s popular 85 series. This version was very similar to its older counterpart , the major changes being the output stage (6 watts of push-pull from two EL95 tubes), the colour scheme and the substitution of an EM84 ribbon-type magic eye for the older round EM71.
