Rheem Califone 73-T

Yes...this really is the Rheem Air Co. In 1959 Rheem bought an interest in Roberts and distributed the tape recorders with parts supplied by Akai and assembled by Roberts in California. A friend worked at Rheem's NY HQ, but was unable to find any records regarding their tape recording years.  More Info

Roberts 192 FT 1962  $349.95

Plaque says "Original Design by Jack Davis - Roberts Electronics, Inc."  This one's a bit difficult to tag regarding year and price as there is no name plate other then the 'designed by" either on the front, nor anywhere else on the unit. No ad has been discovered showing the unusual chrome head cover.  The 192 was available up until the end of the 1960's and targeted to professional broadcasters.
