|Juliette LT-44, ca. 1964|
(with its chrome-plated lid closed)
Rim drive. Approximately 7-1/16 inches / 18 cm long, excluding the handle.
The Lloyds TP-566W and the Star-lite ST-666 have the same chassis and outside dimensions as this recorder. This Juliette presents a much nicer appearance with its chrome plating and its high-style front panel treatment with Lucite function knob and thumbwheel volume knob.
Here's the Juliette with its box and accessories.
The schematic shows five transistors, but one is used as a diode (base and collector connected together). By the late 1960s such transistors would be counted and this would be a five-transistor tape recorder; in fact "dummy" transistors would be added to a circuit just to increase the transistor count for marketing purposes.
