Model E2772: New! As can be seen, it is very similar to the Philips EL-3400, however, it is not exactly the same.  The Peto Scott machine was a slightly less "Professional" machine (for want of a better phrase) than the Philips machine and was designed for use in schools and colleges.  There are less A/V sockets on the back, and the Din socket on the front of the Philips has been replaced by a quarter-inch jack socket.  The video head on this (and the Philips EL-3400 & LDL-1200) is extremely easy to change and was designed to be changed by the user.  The white plastic head cover lifts off and the head is simply clicked into place.  Interestingly enough, this machine uses the capstan and pinch rollers to drive the tape in Fast Forward and Rewind modes as well as play. This machine is quite difficult to thread because of the posts on the outside of the drum.  It contains umpteen valves (21 vacuum tubes), it weighs a ton (~99 Lbs.) and makes a huge amount of noise when it's running.
