Telefunken v610

Hi !
Just got this Telefunken box with 4 micpres probably for field work. There´s no product number, just the Telefunken logo. I opened it up and on the 4 preamps it says v610 (universal audio I´m thinking?). Inside, built with modules. It´s switchable between 12v and 220/110v. I didn´t find anything on the web so far. Hard to search without any product name or number. Anyone have any info on this beast ? Too, of course, I´m interested in knowing from what era it is.. more or less i guess.
Regards / Ras

ye, maybe a wild guess.. strange, I can´t find anything on this one. Was thinking that there must be some sort of telefunken product list over the years somewhere. well, for 10€ it can´t be that bad of a deal.. thanks for responce

I have a couple of these modules racked up. What else do you know about them nickelironsteel? I was told mine probably came from a radio studio and are germanium.

I'm not technically-minded enough to get much from that. I'm more curious about their history or general impressions from people who've used them.

Can you elaborate just a tiny bit nickelironsteel, or does it involve some kind of secret handshake?

Elaborate, nice put.. Yes, very please, or if you know ways of me finding out for myself and get a better picture of this heavy beast. -Found it surrounded by trash and more trash on a hippie fleemarket out here on the countryside south of Portugal. Would be nice to see the history and travels of this one !

Telefunken produced a ton of cost effective radio and remote recording stuff entering the transistor age

If it works for you awsome but ive been through a lot of similar units and had a pass on most

One of the very few i kept is the siemens ela 1208 mixer which even though transistorized has a very musical hi eq which shines on electric guitars
Others hated it and sold it for pennies

Most of the transistorized stuff doesnt have the vintage cult value for a reason: lack of headroom

Ok, thanks again nickel. What I´m after is character in sound and equipment so we´ll see if it fits my sound when I get back home and connect it up with my setup. Cheers bro
