    Here's a photo of Sarah Vaughn and Quincy Jones in Paris in 1958. After looking at this photo I think Sarah is singing along with the tape playing. This is based on the expression on Quincy's face, he's looking like he's enjoying what she's doing. That's a beautiful suitcase recorder they're using.

    Is it live, or is it Memorex?

    Oh, I crack myself up sometimes! ;)

    I totally cannot tell what kind it is -- Telefunken, maybe? Nope, doesn't look like enough letters... So many European portables look(ed) like that recorder! I, briefly, "had" one, an Elizabethan I found (of course) at the Harvard, MA town dump. IIRC, it was a 220v machine and... I actually don't remember what became of it. It's not here now, I know that! :|

    Back on topic ;)

    Grundig, maybe? :blush:

    EDIT: Grundig TK830?

    Whatever it is, I really like the little zippered pouch in the top cover for the mics and cables :)

    It is a Grundig, I think - my older cousin had one when I was a kid. The case was different, but I remember the zip. My temporary uncle (the guy who was around with his mother at the time) was a merchant sailor and gave me a tape recorder which he said was used on a ship. Whether they threw it away or he "liberated" it, I don't know. It was a Brenell. I can remember recording Top of the Pops off the BBC from the TV's speaker via a little crystal mic. I can also remember my cousin and I recording my mother snoring while asleep in her chair and her saying we had faked it. The recorder was in really bad shape, and it was in a wooden case with a hinged lid covered with sticky back plastic covering in a sort of fake marble pattern. On Googling, I think the wooden case was a mod and my closest memory is this:

    Ah, Grundig, good sleuthing Mark. I like the two foam dots on the lid's inside so any reels can be held when the case is closed.

    I liked that as well. Not exactly pocket material those tape reels.

    I dunno, man -- I've got some cargo pants that could probably swallow up a 10-1/2" NAB-hub reel. B)

    Likewise -- another nice touch. It's a pretty keen looking piece of hardware in its own, oh-so-German way. :)
    The Sony 777 family has (had) something similar, FWIW.
    oops, nope -- scratch that. :|

    This photo has been fact-checked by independent forum monitors and has been deemed to be false. The image has been photoshopped to remove the Starbucks location that should be approximately mid-frame, third boulder from the left. The original also had a homeless "tent-city", though it remains unclear if Martian authorities cleared the encampment out before this shot was taken.

    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, Mcintosh C2300 Arcam AVR20, Oppo UDP-203 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk Audio Legend L800 with height modules, L400 Center Channel Polk audio AB800 "in-wall" surrounds. Marantz MM7025 stereo amp. Simaudio Moon 680d DSD

    Starbucks wouldn't let the rover use the rest room without buying a Grande coffee -- and the rover was told it could just forget about using the WiFi.

    Oh, I should mention -- I am pretty sure those AKAI speakers are TL cabinets loaded with rather nice Fostex "fullrange" 4" drivers (akin to the famous/infamous Radio Shack 40-1197/Fostex FE-103 drivers). :|

    Now:
    I see your AKAI and raise you pair of "Horrortones".
