Philips EL 3302.
Portable cassette tape recorder. They began to produce
in 1966, and this unit was made in April 1969. It is
also known that the model Norelco Carry-Corder '150'
similar to the model Philips EL 3300 was presented to
the United States in 1964. These, and other similar tape
recorders are development of the very first serial model
cassette (Compact Cassette)
the tape recorder in the world. It
was the Philips EL 3300, introduced in 1963, together
with the advent of compact cassettes. The shape and
overall layout of the tape proved so successful that in
the future, such devices were produced for many years in
various countries in large numbers. In this design
certainly changed somewhat, but they were similar in
appearance to the very first Philips EL 3300. In the
Soviet Union in 1969 also produced similar tape titled "Desna"
(Десна), and from 1972 -
"Sputnik 401" (Спутник 401) and "Legenda 401"
(Легенда 401). Philips EL
3302A/15G, which you see in the photographs was made in
Austria, and got me in excellent condition. To improve
its capacity require only the replacement of rubber
belts, and cleaning the battery compartment contacts.
Original rubber belts developed from old into something
resembling a pitch, and it all had to scrape away a long
time. The design of the recorder is very simple, but
provides all the minimum necessary functions. Mode
control is performed by one lever, which can move in
four directions. Explain in detail how it works, I think
there is no need, as such recorders used to be in every
home. Dimensions 200
x 114 x 60 mm. Weight without batteries 1 kg. Power 7,5
v, five batteries C. Speed Tape 4.7 cm / sec. Belt width
3.81 mm. In the kinematics used two rubber belt. Circuit
collected at nine transistors, two of which are used in
the stabilizer motor speed. There are, - a microphone
and line inputs, line output, output to an external
speaker, separate volume and level of recording, the
recording level indicator and power supply. Also
provided for connecting the power adapter.
Overall impression of the device is very good, and now
he is in excellent working condition. I must say that
Soviet counterparts were working normally. Problems also
arose with the friendships compact cassettes, which in
the Soviet Union were very poor quality, and constantly
