Additional Details


The Universal had been in
production and development for 5 years by the time this version appeared.
The 5000’s improvements included fully transistorised circuitry and a
new physical design.
Enclosed in an all metal case, it had a lift-up lid which exposed the
tape spools and “piano keyboard” type controls for the deck.
These controls featured all the standard positions of start, stop, pause,
record, fast forward and fast rewind and, in addition, a continuous playback
control (automatic playback and rewind) and a special dictating control
which automatically adjusts the record level of the microphone.
