Here i present to the community

an unusual mono radio cassette recorder

made by JVC at the late 70s(judging by its looks). icon_smile.gif

The model  is the RC-207R and what makes this

radio special in my opinion is its unique appearance

and its truely useful design.

What is so amazing and makes this model stand out

from the rest monos is its Flash Light/Lantern

feature .icon_smile.gif

I know that  i am amazed with this feature alone

as i ve never seen it before at any old radio !

It s sound is pretty ok for a mono

and i really do like its style !!

Its like a little brother of the JVCs RC-717 and 707 only

with flashlights.

Anyway enjoy some pics of iticon_biggrin.gif

If you are recording through the built in mics,you can depress editor switch and hold down to stop tape /record. It doesn't stay down when you lift off it goes back to recording . Also if you hook up multiple audio inputs in the back like a turntable or another cassette , the editor function makes it easier to make a mix tape. The editor function is more accurate than stopping tape.

Wow! Another reason to want a BomBeat 40: precision pause-taping!  :drool:

 

Go!

I can think of many, many reasons to want one of these shiny things but funnily enough, the edit button isn't one of those reasons. Why? I hear someone aksing. Because there are several Sharps GF-*_* that have edit buttons too, I especially enjoy the one on my GF-9090 as its motor is a little weak and no longer has the torque to start the recording straight up at the correct speed, so it provides an unintentional yet wonderful special effect where it decides quite randomly how quickly the tape accelerates back up to its full speed meaning that, in the finished mix when played back, the new track that is being faded in starts faster and gradually settles to its correct speed, ideal for seguéing Slade's "Far far away" into Big Country's much-loved "Fields of fire" but would work when you want to cross fade from any track to another where the first has the same time signature as the second but the first has a faster tempo.

 

Yeah, I know, I should get out more.... :blush:

Does anyone remember this little diamond?

(If no you can find it on page 16 !)

 

Well i managed to find the time to take some

pics as i promised , with the led bulbs !!icon_smile.gif

It took me 2 months but as they say

better late than never.

Meanwhile i found another one and

from mono it went to Stereo !!!

 

I had to resize the jpgs and make a gif.

Thats my first try in making a gif

(with a tripod it would look better i know)

but hey its my first gif !

 

Looks like a mono disco bbox now !!icon_smile.gif

I just love it.

Now those are very strange radios. I have never seen those before. What is the light for? Does it change colors in a cycle? Is it meant to be a disco light? or is it a flash light?

 

Cool design none the less.
