TTT35a Volmet recorder before commissioning
In the same envelope as the Volmet photo was the equipment bay photo above. Helpfully the legend just says old LATCC equipment !!!!!! and isn’t dated. It shows two three bay units. Each unit contains 16 tape decks and the far unit is labelled studio one. Maybe is it related to the Volmet picture, can you help? If so please use the comments link at the top of the post.
