- casetofon auto - numai pt redare - ce foloseste casetele fara sfarsit OrrTronic Tapette si /sau Cousino Echo-Matic (vezi alaturat), aparute cu vreo 2 ani inaintea mult mai cunoscutei 8track/stereo8 (vezi alaturi) ; in America nu am gasit un cas de masina mai vechi decat acesta , deci din documentele pe care le detin si dupa conceptia lui generala pot aprecia ca este probabil primul casetofon de masina fabricat in SUA ; nu trebuie uitat ca in Europa exista deja - inca din 1958 - mult mai avansatul radio-casetofon Saba TKR-15 Sabamobil (vezi alaturat) ;

2 piste mono, redate prin amplificatorul radio-ului masinii, max. 1 h auditie ; montare sub bordul masinii; pretul epocii: $119.95, la care se adauga montajul, de cca. $ 7-15, functie de tipul masinii.

- first (?) car cartridge player made in USA ; it uses OrrTronic Tapette & Cousino Echo-Matic endless cartridges (see attached) , which appeared 2-3 years before more known ''Stereo8'' /''8-track'' cartridge (see attached, introduced by LearJet electronics), successfully promoted by greater RCA company ; according my documents & searching and its general conception , I didn't find in USA an earlier car cartridge player than this; by comparison, in Europe did already exist -starting 1958- the car radio-cassette player Saba TKR-15 (see attached);
2 mono tracks, played using the car radio's amplifier, max. 1 h audition ; under dash mounting; period price: $119.95 + 7-15 for mounting, depending the car's type.
