Lloyds 8 track player. Model V150



Used Google translator

     Lloyds 8 track player. Model V150.    Receiver FM and AM bands, combined with the player, reproducing the magnetic tape recording - cartridge format "8-track". Made in Hong Konge in 60 - 70-ies. This format was once widely distributed in the United States. Since 1964 make many players and tape recorders in this format, portable, stationary, car. However, the proliferation of compact cassettes, "8-track" gradually disappeared, and the last cartridge was sold in the U.S. in 1982. In the USSR about this format, many do not even hear. 8 track, - then 8 tracks record, two on each channel. Ie, the tape there are 4 pairs of track record. Player Dimensions 220 x 190 x 100 mm. Weight about 2 kg. Nutrition 9 v, six batteries of type C includes an internal power supply designed to connect to a network 120 v. All Circuit Boards, including the receiver, collected 12 transistors, and still works fine. In general, the apparatus was fully functional, and to me it seems no one does not climb up, no signs of repair. Kinematics is very simple. Flywheel, whose axis is the capstan, is connected to the engine belt. At the kinematics ends. Everything else, pinch roller, and winding mechanism are in the cassette. The design of the cartridge very original, a tape in it is connected by a ring. In the tape has a metallic insert, required for triggering the sensor automatically switches channels. Ie, after the loop playback on one channel, switches to the second (the head is moved in height), then the third, fourth, and again at first. And so on to infinity. The cartridge design is clearly visible in the photo below. Tape is taken from the middle of winding, and through this movement is wound around its outer layer. Also, the player has a mechanism that moves the head in one of 4 of the height for channel selection. All controls are located on the top panel. To the left of the switch is a large button manually select channels. Each press switches on one channel ahead, and so the circle.

Dimensions cassettes 135 x 100 x 20 mm. Playback time of one cycle depends on the amount of film in the cassette. Available I have a tape playing time within 7 - 13 minutes per cycle.
