Excellent, marvellous, beautiful, splendid.
words that merely describe this extremely well kept (unused?) reporter 4000-5 by UHER, the famous German manufacturer of portable tape recorders.
The original and unused leather reporter bag/case is of an amazing beauty. Not used at all.
Some storage marks are the only difference between excellent and mint...
The Report 4000 was a series of portable open-reel magnetic-tape audio recorders, introduced by UHER in München (Germany) in 1961. It was one of the first truely portable fully transistorised recorders that dominated the professional (broadcast) market for many years. Numerious variants of this recorder exist, and it was also used by law enforcement agencies and in espionage trade.
The machine measures 270 x 215 x 85 mm and weights 3 kg. It is used with two open reels with a diameter of 13 cm (5 inch) and has two mono audio tracks. It offers four speeds for recording and play-back.
The Report 4000 is powered by five 1.5V D-size batteries, that are installed in a compartment that can be accessed via the removable bottom panel. The unit can also be powered by an external mains transformer, or an internal one.
