Gray Audograph model D6



Used Google translator

     Gray Audograph model D6.    Portable Recorder - phonograph powered by an AC voltage of 115 v. Made in the USA in the late 50's by "Gray Manufacturing company" Hartford, Connecticut, USA. Recording is made on plastic floppy disks blue 15 cm On one side of the disc, you can make 12 minutes of recording time at a frequency voltage of 50 Hz. In the U.S., which used the frequency of 60 Hz, such a drive fit only 10 minutes of recording. This is due to the fact that the recorder used AC motor, the speed of which depends on the frequency of the supply voltage. Dimensions recorder 220 x 171 x 65 mm. Weight 2,6 kg.
     Circuit collected in three low-power transistor type 2N214 (1 pc.), 2N228 (2 pcs.), And a power transistor type 2N257. Mechanics of the recorder is very difficult, and made very high quality. She was fully serviceable, if not take into account the lack of a rubber belt. After the grease and install a new rubber belt mechanics works like new. The main difference between this recorder from the most similar to that recording and reproducing head is fixed, and moves the drive on which you are recording. During the work, he moved from center to edge with worm mechanism. When recording (pressing TALK) recording head is lowered and the needle is pressed against the disk. If you're playing (pressing LISTEN) falls heads. Recording head has a small freedom of movement in the horizontal plane (approximately 2 mm) to compensate for the mismatch of heads. Needles of both heads were in good working order.
     To repair the electronics necessary to replace dried-up electrolytic capacitors. After the repair works as new. As a speaker uses a microphone (Dynamic, 230 ohms) with remote activation key. The sound is loud and good quality. Since the recorder used AC motor, the problems with the instability is no speed. Also included recorder has foot pedal controls. A microphone and a pedal connected to one terminal of the recorder, but less pedal jack microphone jack, and when it is connected, open access to the round connector for connecting an external speaker or amplifier. On the front face panel are volume controls (left) and the recording level (right), and the right of the drive wheel is located, through which you can move the drive forward - backward to install it in the desired position.
