Pentru a promova rapid caseta compact (TM) pe piata americana Philips a cumparat pt o perioada firma americana Mercury,sub brandul careia a realizat cateva modele de aparate cu caseta , unele prezentate si alaturat. Aparatul are mecanica de Philips, radio AM si FM, tranzistorizat, made in Japan.Este primul al carui design prefigureaza infatisarea viitoarelor radio-casetofoane portabile clasice, cu radioul alaturat in acelasi plan , casetofonului (nu suprapus, cum a fost Philips/Norelco RL962 -v alaturat)  


In order to promote the compact cassette (TM) on the American market, Philips bought for a while the American company Mercury Records, under whose brand it made several models of gramophones and cassette players, some of which are presented here. This device has Philips mechanics, AM and FM radio, transistorized, made in Japan. It is the first whose design foreshadows the appearance of future classic portable radio-cassette recorders with the radio next to it in the same plane, the cassette player (not superimposed, as was the Philips/Norelco RL962 -v next to it)
