1970-1972 or so vintage. That's the model I first used back in 73-74. Clear plastic outer knobs, dark "Revox" badge, red meter and power buttons...
Mine is the MK IV - the last version they made.
Built like a tank, and could hit high output tape.
Now that I think about it, didn't I post the Revox brochure for your model?
But hey, I sure hope that Otari isn't fast winding, 'cause I see signal on the meters, which will blow your tweeters, which would be, like, such as, a total bummer. Unless, of course, you had the amp turned down.
Did you remember to do that?
Should someone come to look in on you every day or so?
Now that I'm thinking about it, I knew a guy who died in his apartment. He played trumpet in the Maynard Ferguson band. People hadn't heard from him in a week. A week. Someone called the police, and they found him dead from a heart attack.
Let this be a lesson: Do NOT fast wind your tape deck unless you're sure that you'll survive and have the presence of mind to hit "stop".
Yes, what a mess that could be -- a rotting corpse AND 2/3 of a mile of Mylar tape all over the place.
Happy New Year!
all the best,
Old faithful. Great sounding.
