That's a very unusual model, having the two speaker outputs! I don't need another Eiki, but in case anyone wonders, I suppose the extra knob with the others is a volume control for the mic?
That case is unusual too. Do you know if it was made specially for Eikis of that width?

Adrian, judging by the decal on that knob, I think it's a balance control for the twin speakers. See how it's thick at the ends and thinner up top in the middle?
Hey maybe this is one of those mythical optical stereo 16mm machines!

Stuart - I think Francisco's latest photos indicate we were both half right, as it seems to be a balance control, but with the balance being between mic volume and projection volume.
It would be interesting to see a comprehensive list of 'alternative' Eiki models, as there seems to have been a few. I'm aware that Eiki's divisions in certain countries had a certain amount of autonomy (e.g. I know some of the later SNTs/SSLs sold in Germany came with Isco-Optic lenses, and some German SSLs had on/off switches) and this one might only have been sold in Europe.
As for stereo projectors, I believe there's a old forum thread that even indicates the rare Elmo projector that any stereo film owner would need!

Slot/Channel Load design makes loading faster, easier and above safer for films! Even with poor film leader, slot-loading ensures your film won't get 'eaten' and damaged, unlike autoload design.
Still-Frame: The SSL-0 features Still-Frame capability, permiting instant viewing of individual frames. Very few 16mm projectors have this feature.

Although I don't need another Eiki, I must say that the new condition; the extra lenses, etc; the superb case and the inclusive shipping make this a bargain, particularly for someone wanting a projector that's ideal for public shows. It's a rare opportunity that someone might regret missing later!
