On the center of its forward panel the large regulator of loudness to the left of which there are switched-off timbre regulators in the field of low and high frequencies, and also the switchboard for two couples connected speaker systems is located. On the other hand there is a stereobalance regulator, the mode switch work of an entrance for the recorder, and the selector of sources of a signal.
