Comments This is a portable office dictating machine, of, I think, German origin. The machine records on a 7 inch magnetic disk, which is dropped onto a record player style turntable, with a reord/replay head attached to a tone arm style device. The head is tracked over the disk in a spiral to give a single recorded track on each disk. The microphone has controls for starting and stopping the record or reply, making life eaier for both the typist and the executive!
