It's a 1950s Vortexion. A British manufacturer who use Ferrograph (Wearite) decks with their own record amplifiers. Each side has its own power supply and amplifier with six valves (tubes). It is two channel (stereo or independantly switched) across the full width of the 1/4" tape (so one direction only).
I am repairing it for Toe Rag studios in London who are going to use it as a tape echo machine.
