Ecstasy. At a price that won’t cause too much agony. (Feb, 1972)

Ecstasy. At a price that won’t cause too much agony.

Before the ecstasy of listening to your new stereo equipment comes, alas, the agony of shopping for it —the frustration of wanting this feature, and that spec, and finding that your budget won’t quite cover it.

Sony/Superscope tape recorders
