We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Byte ZX Spectrum Clone

This Spectrum clone has much in common with the real machine spec wise, the plate on the back describes a Z80A Processor (USA) with 48K of RAM and a 16K Rom. The board is a KHCA758725996.

The DIN plugs on the rear are for TV, tape interface and joystick, then there is a 5V DIN, the Spectrum like edge connector with another DIN socket above, possibly for RGB video out. There is also a switch on the back.

There is a punched metal panel on the back with 'no: 4481', and 'date: 1292', which likely means December 1992. We are not exactly sure of the country of origin, but the Cyrillic alphabet on the underside helps narrow it down.

Whilst the 'BYTE' text does resemble the Byte magazine logo, we do not believe it is related.

Little is known about this computer aside from the physical specifications. If you are able to supply additional verifiable information, please do use the link below.

Manufacturer: Byte
Date: December 1992
