      AIWA TP-60R.   Japanese 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.
