Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

I have all these 3 machines...

and sold all my Naks and Tascam except for the Revox B215 of which I just had it refurbished and recapped from top to bottom about 2 years ago. Sound wise I'd rank them like this Nakamichi, Revox and Tascam although both Revox and Nakamichi sounds very close it just that Nakamichi add sweetness to the sound as oppose to Revox, which is very neutral.

In terms of reliability I'd rank them like this Revox, Tascam and Nakamichi. Nakamichi and Revox machines are very hard to refurbished now a days especially the Dragon and B215 as the parts are hard to come by and if they do it'll be very expensive. And then to find the tech that you can trust is another issue.

If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing well
