board, covered with leatherlike plastic This is the very first Philips taperecorder that was produced for the consumer market. It wasn't a succes though, probabely because an machine like this that cost about 700 guilders at that time was considered to be true luxury. Not until the appearance of the simple and cheap EL3510 there was little interest for the domestic taperecorder.
