The spools were around five or six inches diameter. I'm pretty sure they were less than the seven inch spools the (audio) Tandberg's used. The tape was half inch and black unlike the brown of the emitape. It was the "portable" version of the LDL1000, so it could be carried to different rooms, intended for the education market (where I started in AV). It was black and white only (or perhaps we must call it monochrome these days). It was also quite heavy!

The three "fiddle knobs" were needed to "adjust" the tracking, and I remember standing there like a different type of knob, trying to get the damn thing stable enough to leave with a teacher and class of kids. Tape wear was a problem as each reel was re-recorded every week, and played about ten times.

If you think that was fun, the LEA replaced it with the dreaded VCR. But at least that gave me a change of scenery - taking it to Leeds every two weeks to have it fixed!
