Designed to operate vertically, the Wyndsor International was a four-track two speed (3¾ & 7½ IPS) mono recorder with independent bass and treble controls and a rear-facing 8″ speaker. The selling point for the rear-facing speaker was that it could be useful for a lecturer, for example, who would be able to operate the machine
while the sound was being projected towards the audience.
A two-speed version of the three-motor Truvox Series 8 deck was utilized. Other features included output for stereo, three inputs with mixing, straight through amplifier capability, spool locking nuts, pause control, and VU meter for recording level.
