Beocord Stereomaster 610T
(1963-1964) Stereo tape recorder, 1⅞, 3¾, 7½ IPS, two or four track format, 2x6W
This machine was technically identical to the Beocord Stereomaster 610K, the difference was that it was supplied in a “luggage” cabinet complete with a latching lid and a carrying handle. The lid was divided into two halves, each of which contained a loudspeaker. These loudspeakers were of a special Philips design that had the magnetic assembly fitted inside the cone rather than behind it, so tapes could safely be left in place without fear of recordings on them being spoiled. The cabinet was banded in polished stainless steel to protect the delicate equipment inside. Text copyright © Beocentral. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
