PhonoTrix Miniature Tape Recorder, 1965
In the mid 1960's the miniature Phono Trix 88 recorder was introduced in the USA and become a popular alternative to the Minifon because of it's less expensive cost. It was only 1 7/8 inches X 4 1/4 inches X 7 1/2 inches and was billed an a new pocket-size recorder. I guess you had to have big pockets back then! It's weight was a mere 2 1/4 lbs. Like the Minfon, it was marketed through exclusive dealers and had a number of "fascinating" accessories including a tie clip mic, a pen mic, leather carrying case, stethoscope headphone, amplified speaker, shoulder holster and anything else the company could come up with. This unit was sold by a company called Metropolitan Tel-Tronics Corporation of New York City. See the details in the brochure below.
