RE: Recent R2R player/recorder review and old decks

Hey A. Wayne,

Yeah I am an old dog and had a Revox A77 for decades.

Could not pass up the Teac X2000 as I got it for free and it was in pristine looking condition. I did send it to Teac to be refurbished and it was not too expensive. I bought a blank sealed Ampex 10 in off the bay and tried to get it to record but it just is not happening. Looks like it has to go back to California again as I am positive the tape monitor is working correctly. I have a bunch of recordings but the reels just have not held up. My cassettes have held up amazingly well but the reel to reels have just gone to hell.

I appreciate the tips though and thank you for posting it. Happy Spinning
