This was an impressive machine by specifications but due to poor rubber and the constant wear on the heads, it proved to be a poor recorder. This machine was intended for professional use and would have been competing against the likes of Revox. Built to run at 15, 7 1/2 and 3 3/4 IPS at full track stereo this machine does have a good dynamic range. SIGNAL TO NOISE OF 60Db, .25% recorded distortion and wow & flutter of .08% (@15IPS). The machine was built in 1973-4 and cost around £300. This recorder was added to my collection in 2000. Its first owners were the well known BBC and it still has the BBC orange logo sticker under the carry handle. Costing approximately £40 plus another £60 to get fully restored again it is a very nice bit.
