Additional Details


A half-track machine from Germany, the Universal was still being made in the late 60’s, although with many cosmetic and technical improvements. It had three speeds (3¾, 1 7/8 and 15/16 ips) and excellent wow and flutter characteristics.
Designed with dictation in mind, there was provision for operating start/stop/record functions from the microphone.
The very low speed of 15/16 ips made it an extremely useful dictaphone whilst the quite passable 40Hz – 16kHz frequency
response at 3¾  ips meant that the Universal could be used
for playing music as well.
