"Rewrite & Record LP's Recorder".....





*Check this out*

Can't figure out whether or not you can record more than just your voice on it via the wacky microphone thing or whether you can record via a different source on what look to be xlr connections on the back.

I'm very tempted.....

It's an Assmann dictation recorder from the late 1960s. Big deal....a similar design was the "Recordon" marketed in the US in the early 1950s. They had horrible sound fidelity and were only suitable for voice recording.

Mag-disk recorders were more popular in Europe, while in the US the market was owned by Dictaphone and IBM. Their machines used either soft plastic belts into which a groove was melted by a moving stylus, or (later) belts made of the same material as magnetic tape.
Before that? Wax cylinders....
