Memocord K60



Used Google translator

     Memocord K60.   Such cassette recorders produced Austrian company "Stuzzi Ges. MbH; Wien", but on the front of my vehicle has a logo "Assmann", apparently belonging to the German company "Assmann GmbH". Nevertheless, on the box and cassettes is marked "Made in Austria". Estimated start of production of these recorders - 1965. Dimensions 145 x 78 x 28 mm. Weight 330 g. Power supply 4,5 v, three AA batteries.
     Cartridges used in them, resemble today's compact cassette, but structurally very different. Their building houses two reels of film, but without the usual holes reel tables. Instead, with one hand in case there is a window that opens access to the reel and the edges of the coils. When the cassette is inserted into the recorder, the edges of rolls of rubber rollers kinematics relate to them and rotate. It is clear that the stabilization of the velocity of the belt for it. Dimensions cassettes 100 x 52 x 10 mm, film width 3.81 mm, recording time is 2 x 25 min and 2 x 35 min. I have the tapes MT550 (2 x 25 min), MT560 (2 x 25 min) and MT570 (2 x 35 min) produced by "Assmann GmbH" and "Stuzzi Ges. MbH; Wien". In the past there is a built-in tape counter. It is designed as a circular protrusion in the side of the case, and is equipped with an arrow and a ruler.
     An original feature of these recorders is the lack of control buttons. More precisely, there is only one switch button "record - play." Management is done by pressing one of the end edges of the tape. Cassette with a container in which it is inserted, has a certain freedom in the horizontal plane about a central axis. When you click on the edge of the tape is closed by spring contact integration, and drive one of the coils is pressed against the corresponding rubber roller.

Video review

The photo on the left enabled playback - records. In the photo on the right mode rewind. Photos can be enlarged

     Kinematics fairly simple, but done very carefully, qualitatively. The engine is connected to the rollers with a single belt. At one of the rollers is counting on to fine-tune the speed with strobe. Circuit collected by 4 transistors (2 x AC141B, 2 x AC142B) and 1-chip (TAA151). Controls for volume and level of writing separately. Beside them is the fixation of the selected engine operating mode. The front panel is placed microphone - speaker and two LEDs display modes. Green - reproduction, red - the record. At the end of the body there are two connectors (2,5 mm jack) to connect the headset and microphone control. To access the battery compartment must unscrew "lamb" on the side of the case (also included is "lamb" with a strap to wear on the hand), and remove the top cover. Designated batteries are under the lid. Caps, metal, plastic housing.
     The general impression of the apparatus is good. Quality of recording - playback is decent, the playback volume and microphone sensitivity enough. Distortions associated with the unevenness of the belt is almost absent. The positive qualities can also be attributed to the rapid replacement cassettes. This can be done even faster than in any modern cassette tape recorder.
     The device has been bought in working order. In the complete set there was a firm box trimmed with a leather substitute, a thong for carrying on a hand, and 8 cartridges such as MT550, MT560 and MT570.
