Thanks for posting the review. I really enjoyed the writer's humor and whimsy on reporting on the deck. Fun review to read.
Would love one but will just have to slum it with my Teac X2000.
The key to good sound from your R2R is the tapes , if you can get good copies you will be 90% there, basic maintenance and the obvious re-cap will have your deck singing ...
Hey A. Wayne,
Yeah I am an old dog and had a Revox A77 for decades.
Could not pass up the Teac X2000 as I got it for free and it was in pristine looking condition. I did send it to Teac to be refurbished and it was not too expensive. I bought a blank sealed Ampex 10 in off the bay and tried to get it to record but it just is not happening. Looks like it has to go back to California again as I am positive the tape monitor is working correctly. I have a bunch of recordings but the reels just have not held up. My cassettes have held up amazingly well but the reel to reels have just gone to hell.
I appreciate the tips though and thank you for posting it. Happy Spinning
I have lost very few of my tapes over the years, key is cool and dry storage and away from anything magnetic...
