Series 64 X (Tandberg) 1966




New Page 1

this is one of the first series sold in the UK, the first was the series 6. This recorder was produced in 1966. A bit of an oddity is this machine is stereo, models they made after such as the series 11 where mono possible that this machine was expensive so a cheaper version was brought out. Another thing about this design is that its a hybrid between valves and transistors, the audio is all valve where the oscillators are transistorised.
