Gendec (Geneva Decca)
Built by David Frost and Colin Moorfoot to upgrade MASPERE, it used some maspere units with additional new ones. It was a 20 channel mixer with simultaneous 2 track and 4 track working. It had one group of 6 channel faders on each of its selections. Channels 10 and 11 were fixed L and R. Built c.1966.

Dolby "A"
Decca was the first company to use the Dolby "A" noise reduction system. It began with the Dolby "A" 301 and carried with successive models until the advent of digital recording.
