Sony tcm-59v cassette recorder

In addition to the usual features of this class of machine, the TCM-59V also offered auto-reverse (automatic only during playback, manual during recording), voice-activated recording (VOR), a tape counter, a flat microphone built into the cassette door, variable speed playback, and two (mono) speakers in the Built in the back of the device. Since heads were not widely used for auto reverse mono recorders, the TCM-59V used a stereo head with both channels firmly connected. The TCM-59V was a full-featured compact mono tape recorder positioned near the top of its range. The erasure was done by two separate heads, one on either side of the main head, which were switched on and off depending on the recording direction in the circuit.
