     Monacor.    Portable tape recorder - a toy, manufactured in Japan in 1964. Also produced under the names "Electra 770", "Star-Lite Pocket Mate", "Encorder 400, "Gold Crest". Perhaps there were other names. Dimensions 205 x 65 x 40. Weight 0,5 kg. Power wiring - 9 v, battery PP3, Engine - 3 v, two batteries.  
     The design of the device quite sturdy, metal case, stamped. Kinematics of simple, on one engine, without stabilization of speed. The engine is located horizontally between reel table, and the shaft, acting on both sides of the engine, rotates either one or the other rubberized reel table. Wiring for 4 transistors (2SB77 - 3 pcs, 2SB75 - 1 pc) made in the form of two boards. One is located under the mode switch, the other under the speaker. The battery compartment is located closer to the middle of the hull near the engine. Batteries in the compartment are as follows - 9 v (type PP3) in the middle and on either side of it on one AA batteries. There are volume and speed of rotation of the engine. The volume control is combined with a switch dynamics. Coil diameter 45 mm (1.75 inches) can hold the tape at 10 - 20 minutes of work. Reels are not standard, and to another recorder will not do. They are densely planted on reel tables with rubber inserts. Photographing the coil must be very careful not to break the thin plastic, from which they are made. By all measures, the device can be classified as a tape - toys, but in general it looks like gangbusters. Compact and competent engineering studies design make it one of the best of these toys. By the way, erase head is real. However, the generator is not erased in the circuit, and is essentially just an electromagnet. This decision was apparently due to aesthetic considerations. Both heads are opened in a conspicuous place, and are part of the design structure. Works staff pretty well, and it could be used as a voice recorder. Disadvantages are the small recording time, and the inability to quickly replace the tape. Is also no built-in microphone. To connect an external microphone and headset has one jack (3,5 mm) in the side of the case, next to the buttons to switch modes. All four buttons, - "S" - stop (red), "RC" - record (white), "PB" - Playback (green), "RW" - Rewind (white).  

     The device was bought complete with a cover made of soft plastic. To bring it into working condition necessary to replace the engine, and some dried electrolytes.
