Grundig TK 149


The TK149 stands out as a superb example of Grundig craftsmanship and skill.

It is a four track machine incorporating the famous Magic Ear automatic recording level control, although the automatic facility may be switched out to allow manual control if desired.

Manual or automatic recording level adjustment and superimposition are selected by a special three position recording button.

There are three connecting sockets for record/playback, monitor headphones and switchable extension loudspeaker and a four figure digital position indicator is fitted complete with press button reset.

Recordings may be synchronised with the addition of the Monitor Amplifier 229 and earphones 207/S and monitored with the earphone 210/S, all optional extras.

The TK149 is completely controlled by the exclusive Grundig single-lever selector switch.

The beautiful teak finish case with the Silver G-line grille hides a sturdy steel chassis.
