GRUNDIG EN3 DICTATION POCKET RECORDER AND TAPE, 1960's

The Grundig EN3 is an early attempt to put all the functions required of a voice memo recorder in one box. It's a truly hand-held machine, somewhat larger than a modern mobile phone.

The microphone is plugged directly into the top of the machine and includes an integral recording level meter. The tape is controlled by a single red lever, just visible in the photo on the left of the machine. The three AA batteries are hidden under the tape cassette.

Your comments:

  • I remember repairing these in the 1970/80s for an office equipment company in the north east of England. A very sturdy, well built machine. built to the exacting standards of Grundig.

  • I have one just like it. My dad gave it to me. He worked for Cincinnati Gas & Electric. It still works with manual and Styrofoam package. The manual is in German.
