portable tape recorder 60-ies. Dimensions 140 x 85 x 53
mm (excluding the buttons), weight 0,7 kg. Coil diameter
63 mm (2.5 inches) can hold the tape about 30 minutes of
work. Dining 6 v, 4 AA batteries. Among other tape - toy
machine stands well conceived design and quality
manufacturing. That is neat, and inside looks pretty
decent. However, as in other such toys, there is no
constant velocity of the belt. Appearance is nice,
pleasant to hold in your hands. Aluminum body anodized
good in black, buttons, and raises no objections. There
is a leather strap and leatherette cover. In the
accessories included, headphones and two microphones,
one of which is miniature. Both microphone with remote
control switches, and additional connectors for control.
Accordingly, at the recorder has two connectors for a
microphone with remote control and stereo headphone jack.
Traffic on rubber
reel table transferred from a
vertically located between the motor. Depending on the
inclination of the engine, its shaft about one of the
reel table, and carried the movement forward, or
rewind. This mechanics in general can not be called very
simple. Buttons at the expense of simplicity of design
are derived in a row on one side. For comparison, in
similar recorders Craig buttons used instead of slide
switches, which are located in areas housing, where they
remain profitable for reasons of simplifying the design.
Electrical circuit AIWA TP-60R collected by 4
transistors (2SB186 - 2 pcs,
2SB187 - 2 pcs) and two transformers, not counting the
capacitors and resistors. Erase head is real, and not a
permanent magnet, but it works as a simple electromagnet,
as the generator of erasing it. The volume control also
works as a controller of the recording. Power amplifier
enough, loud enough for playback on built-in speaker,
which is located in the bottom of the hull. To improve
hearing, with one side of the building has two legs,
raising the edge by 5 mm.
In order to bring the machine in working
condition required replacement of electrolytic
capacitors dry, and prevention of mechanics.
