ANSWERING AND ANSWERING/RECORDING MACHINES
EAGLE AND FALCON

This bulletin introduces a range of telephone answering and telephone answering/recording machines into the range of products available to our customers. Two models will be introduced, both housed in Ambassador styled cases and supplied in three attractive colours:- Dark Brown, Mid Grey and Stone.

Eagle
Announcements are pre-recorded on to a standard 15 minute mini-cassette using the integral electret microphone located on the lower left hand side of the machine fascia. The mini-cassette may be turned over allowing an alternative announcement to be recorded or additional mini-cassettes can be purchased from most office equipment shops so that a library of announcements can be built up to meet varying circumstances. Each announcement can last up to 60 seconds, the duration being limited by an electronic timer within the machine and may be checked by being played back though an integral loudspeaker.

Falcon
In addition to the facilities provided by the Eagle the Falcon records incoming messages on to a standard 30 minute mini-cassette. Three message lengths can be set by the user so that incoming messages of 30 seconds,1 minute or 3 minutes duration can be recorded. Both announcements and messages can be played back through a loudspeaker incorporated within the machine.
