Default Re: Philips EL3549A reel to reel

I repaired one of these last year. Nicely made machine with the 4 speeds as mentioned, but the rubber belts and tyres may need attention. There may be other mechanical issues. The transistors are all early type Germanium and some made excessive noise and some small capacitors needed replacing.
