Looks like a Switch to me....   I'm sure Robert Gault can "shed some 
light" on it...

The DataSheet for the LM3900N show the 1 & 2 are connected to the Output 
for Channels 3 & 4  ( Determining Pin Out by locating the Gnd and Vcc ) 
Which are probably connected to the Cassette Port, but I haven't 
confirmed it..
