RE: Thin RCA Plugs for Revox

I have an A77 Mk IV which I bought new in about 1978, so I know what you're talking about. Frankly, if your cables don't have to be very long (say, 6 feet or less, any reasonably well-made cable will do just fine. I got my current ones at Guitar Center. They're "Live Wire" brand, which I think is the Hosa brand under another name.

With all due respect to geezerrocket, you don't need to spend $130 for a pair of 6 foot RCA cables.

I hope your shop knows what they're doing on a Revox! Even something as "simple" as replacing the brake bands can be a challenge.

Here's a little tip for threading tape: Press the "Reel motors off" button, and then the FF or FR button. This lets the reels spin freely, making threading easier. Once you've threaded the tape, press the "Stop" button, and then turn the reel motors back on. I've also removed the tape sensor bulb to facilitate easier tape editing.

Have fun!
