Special mono tape recorders for Micro owners of the early 1980s
So what were the KEY FEATURES of these machines that separated them out from the normal mono tape recorders ? I cannot really remember- but I have suddenly realized just how special they were! . So I will have a go.
1) Did they have an AZIMUTH ADJUSTMENT HOLE?
2) Were the heads very accessible and easy to clean?
3) Did they have a facility to reduce the "screeching" decibels down to a more acceptable level when a jack plug was put in?
4)Did they have a nice tape counter?
5) Did they have a nice big volume control wheel so that the "tape load" volume could be precisely controlled?
My WH Smith one broke pretty quickly so it is hardly surprising I have probably forgotten at least half of its most astounding features . And how did the "most excellent" + 2 tape recorder stand up against this incredible competition? It came later but could it possibly get away with not having all these wonderful facilities? How could it not?
