Just picked this up locally for $100. Wondering what your opinions are about this deck, did I do OK? The seller said it was serviced by a local vintage audio guy. I really don't know why I have been obsessed lately with getting a R2R, but I do know I've kinda wanted one ever since I started getting into audio back in the late 70's when I was in college. The seller also threw in some reels, and as it says in the ad it did have the manual, which is nice. It is a real clean unit.
At the very least, the kids and I can play on it recording them, I just need to get a couple mics. At best, it is awesome and I've got a new toy for my 2 channel rig. Anyone have a good (cheap) source for tapes (prerecorded or blank)? Thanks for the help, all.
