not only does it have the NAB/EIA switch it also has the front panel fine adjustable eq and bias and the built in tone generator making it a snap to set up on any tape. What do you think a prime near mint low hour machine would be worth if you coulde fine one?
I am just getting into the reel to reel part of the audio hobby. I have searched and searched, one I almost got went for $599.00, suppossedly in real nice condition, with stand and patchbay (who knows for sure about condition without viewing)...
I would guess that around $1000 or so... but depends, maybe if I can be patient, I can get a good deal.
that sent me the private E-mail the other day. I just figured this out. What part of the country do you live in? I don't know man. I should send you some pics. I wish I had the nerve to sell you mine. I just can't quite do it. It's not the money either. Money wouldn't change my mind. I don't need the money. I just know I would be sorry, like when I sold My McIntosh MR 65b tuner. Boy I wish I had that back, and I hardly ever listen to FM. Or like the time I sold my 1966 MGB, twenty years latter I had to buy another one. I told myself I would never again sell somthing when I was on the fence. So I will continue to use it an hour a month or so just to keep it in tip top shape and when I kick the bucket my wife will probably sell it together with my magnapans for $100.00. Too bad you don't live around Santa Maria California I'd let you borrow it to play with until you found one. Although I feel for you,it's almost impossable to find a true near mint unit. It makes me feel guilty for not selling it to someone who would use it more. Now let me ask: is it imoral in the audiophile world to have a very cool piece of gear and not really use it that much? It almost feels like a sin. I better stop talking this way I'm starting to feel bad. Good luck I will look for you. Bob
