RE: Want a RTR;Recommendations

Thanks Tesla,
With my limited knowledge; I believe most prerecorded tapes are 4 track. I've read that the 7 1/2 IPS tapes sound better than the 3 1/2 tapes. I would imagine that a 4 track deck capable of 10.5 reels would be good for my purposes. As far as 1/2 track vs 1/4 track.....I'm not sure. I wont be doing any live recording if that makes a difference. I see very clean, low use or refurbished decks come up on ebay frequently. I'm not interested in something that needs to be refurbished after purchase. I'd rather spend the $$ upfront and be done with it. I'll join tapeheads.
