RE: An 88 was my first deck...

My first deck was a Roberts (Akai) 1719. Great machine. Then, a Concord with auto-reverse. Not so good. Then, a Tandberg something-or-other, (black faceplate, 7" reel capacity, black meters, green square buttons, full logic), nice deck - shouldn't have sold it. Then a Revox A77 quarter track, then (and now) a Revox A77 Mk IV two track. I'll probably keep it forever.

I've worked with both a Stellavox Sp7 and a Studer A80, and still lust after them, but they've always been out of my budget! The A80 has a scary fast and gentle transport - holy crap!

I currently also own a Tascam 44, which has transport problems. Even so, those TEAC/Tascam decks are very fine machines! Shoulda bought one instead of that stupid Concord!
