Assmann TS 10




Used Google translator

     Assmann TS 10 . Rare German office recorder, wherein the magnetic carrier tape is not used, and the flexible plastic disk coated with ferromagnetic. The disc has a spiral groove of rectangular cross section width of 0.35 mm, along which the serving part of a special magnetic head. Head is completely universal, it combined recording / playback and erase heads. I have in my collection already similar in design voice recorders, Telefunken 600, which was produced since 1962, and Olympia DG 402, around 1974. Judging by the radio components used, Assmann TS 10 was produced in the late 60's or early 70's. Structurally, the device is made very soundly, both halves of the body cast, lightweight, possibly magnesium alloy. Inside all done in German efficiently, accurately, and still everything works fine. The unit has been to me almost in working order, it took only a pointer to grease the time counter. Counter graded in minutes from 0 to 10, and accordingly on the disc can be up to 10 minutes of recording. Despite the small volume of records such recorders have their advantages, as disc easily send a letter by mail.
     Dimensions recorder 290 x 215 x 63 mm, weight 2.8 kg with a microphone. Powered by AC 115/220 v. The recorder uses a DC motor with electronic speed control. Original magnetic disks having a diameter of 155 mm and an opening diameter of 7 mm. However, I got no disc recorder, and I had to use a little refinement after the disc from the recorder Telefunken 600. They differ only in the diameter of the hole. Picture discs can be viewed at Telefunken 600.
     Microphone Remote combines the function of the external speaker. In his case there is a Start / Stop switch and the mode dial - recording (red), playing (green). In playback mode button turns green reverse drive (analog rewind). In recording mode lights up orange light located above the buttons. Also on the upper end of the body there is a switch the microphone sensitivity. It has two positions - normal sensitivity, and reduced.
The front panel of the recorder is slit through which to insert / remove a disc, volume control combined with the power switch, the counter window of time, and the lever to move the magnetic head to the desired position on the disc. To do this, press the lever downwards, after which it can be moved to the right or to the left, and the pointer counter will then be moved to the window along the line. When the lever is pulled while recording recorder enters the playback mode. If you move the lever to the far right and up, then released the pressure lock magnetic disk, and it can be inserted or removed. Retainer disk presses a surface of the aluminum disk of 5 mm thickness with a rubber coating. Below the disc slot on the front panel, there is another window through which we can see the numbers from 1 to 30 on an aluminum disc in a circle. This window is highlighted inside the bulb, which is also an indicator of inclusion.

Video review

In the photo to the right counter recording time. Photos can be enlarged


The top panel is a built-in speaker grille. Externally recorder looks good, and inside too, all in order


     On the rear panel is a connector for the power cord, switch voltage 115/220 v, connector for the phone connector DIN 5 - apparently linear input and output jack, microphone jack, which is also used as an external speaker, and the selector switch dynamics embedded or external (in microphone)


On the upper end of the housing has a microphone switch its sensitivity


     The right side panel is a speed control drive and lever, which is used to boost the magnetic head at the beginning of the spiral groove, for example if due to defective disc that did not happen automatically. To do this, select it to "record" or "play", and lift up. In the "recording" head is pushed further than during playback


     Near the working part of the magnetic head is a flat coil with a tapered protrusion which also slides on the disc, but with an interval of one groove. Perhaps it serves as a guide for the work of the head so that it was exactly in the middle of the groove. The photo shows that when the head is raised, this projection is lowered below the operating head protrusion, and when it is lowered it first gets into the groove


     On the left side of the switch is a microphone / phone and the lever for quick erase data on the disk. If you pick it up, then fed to the drive magnet and the disc starts to rotate at an increased rate. Magnet covers the entire width of the spiral disk, and for one turn with it deletes all the information. Erasing is performed as a previous recording when recording new but using the erase head


In the photo at the bottom right presser disk retainer unlocked


In recording mode, about a minute before the end of the groove on the drive from the internal speaker begin to sound the warning tones. This occurs when the spring contact located around the head begins to touch for the pins arranged on the disc downholder


     Deserves special attention wiring assembled on transistors 19, 10 of them in a universal amplifier (BC149C - 6 pcs, BC140 - 2 pcs, BC109 - 2 pcs), 6 speed regulator (BC108, BC109), and 3 in the voltage regulator (DC149C - 1 pc, BC140 - 2 pcs.) Build quality is excellent, everything is done very carefully, and pleasing to the eye. However, doubt the necessity of such a complex electronics in the device of this class. For comparison, in the same recorder Telefunken 600 amplifier wiring assembled on 4 transistors, while it works perfectly fine.


On the big board assembled universal amplifier recording / playback, erasure generator and circuit switching modes of the recorder
