The company Sonosax in Switzerland eventually bought the Stelladat and brought it to the market. You can see it on their website as a discontinued product:

A nice machine, but too late on the market.

Hi, Tom,

You'll find this (and more) at:



The Stellavox Professional Audio Equipment has been manufactured in Switzerland since the 50s. The first products were professional tape recorders of extremely high mechanical quality.

In the late 80s Stellavox started the development of a portable professional DAT Digital Tape Recorder, the Stelladat.

In 1993, without having reached the break-even with this new product, the owners decided that the market was evolving too fast towards computer recording and that the traditional Stellavox products did not have enough potential anymore. Financial support was dropped and all activities were stopped.
