Well, the spec mentions sound, and claims it to be one channel.
The speaker monitored the input channel in the DIN connection to the tapedeck.
You could make a short with a resistor between output and input and generate one-bit sound. But that was a hack.

Minor correction: The graphical resolution was 78 x 72 (not 78 x 75 as currently stated) as each of the 24 lines could hold 3 vertical pixels in graphics mode.

There was a "grass roots computer movement" in Sweden druing the beginning of the 80s when lay-men took evening classes to learn computers and programming (in BASIC).
Theese classes where not uncommonly held using ABC-80s. (Indeed such a course in 1983 was the first encounter of miy own with the wolrd of bits and bytes)

Radiotechnic. Not Radotechnic. :) Never mind.

There was a good Hungarian version of ABC-80 too. This is the BRG ABC80 (BRG = Radotechnic Factory of Budapest).
It was a great school-computer, in a metal case.
