The electromagnetic spectrum has no theoretical limit at either end. If all the mass/energy in the Universe is considered a 'limit', then that would be the only real theoretical limit to the maximum frequency attainable.

As soon as I saw that machine I thought "Talking Books for the Blind". These were once standard issue in the UK. I then looked at the label, which confirmed "R.N.I.B. Talking Book Service". I had never come across the name "Tapete" though.
