Wow!  What the heck!?!

 

Several things that tickle my fancy on that beauty:

  1. The generic brand "Electronic"
  2. Dual antenna
  3. Phono input
  4. Metal cassette capability
  5. That power switch
  6. "Home Entertainment Device"
  7. Made in Hong Kong

There cannot possibly be more than a handful of those in existence.  Great find!!

Sold in the UK under the Binatone brand mainly through the mail order 'Home Shopping' catalogues when the new at the time 'Tape To Tape' idea became the latest USP!!

 

Seen it under other names like International & others, build quality above average & pretty red/green led's made it look nice & two separate cassette decks of steel construction but often set up extremely badly (Easily Corrected) I did lots like these in the 80's!!

 

I like them despite me really not liking double decks at all!!

All the "Electronic" branded boxes in Canada I've seen are AKAs of the Pulsers sold at Canadian Tire stores

Just did a search of Pulser + boombox + newspaper and found this, check the upper-right corner
