Reel 2 Reel - bottomless pit of faff, expense and hisssssssss

I had been looking at that middle one.


#505

Just an orchestra doing bond though.


#506

You need a micro pocket nagra, a flick knife in your welly with poison curd tip and a car that fires miffins from its exhaust


#507

Yes, but on the instrumental stuff I’d expect it to be near enough. I’ll keep an eye out for OSTs.


#508

People that film everything in portrait orientation need beating to death with their own torn-off leg.

I look at my Revox PR99 Mk3 and I am happy knowing it will work should I ever use it. :sunglasses:

Stellovox on the other hand will likely not work and will have no spares. :thinking:


#510

Sony R2R safely in back of car and now heading home :+1:


#511

Sadly it needs a thorough service. Heads are okay and plays through the headphone output, but one output channel isn’t working and it hums a bit.

Still it will be a good machine once it’s sorted.


#512

Had another look at the akai when guy was over the other day. Fuses were ok, still dead though. Packing it off for a proper faffing next week.
Faff and expense with the promise of pleasure… I have the curious feeling i’ve been this way before - yay!


#513

Mine is fucked too. I think a working and trouble free reel to reel player would be very boring and soon lose appeal. Much better to listen to half a channel 15db down with the eq all over the place and imagine how good it could sound.


#514

It’s like vinyl, raised all in


#515

A friend of mine is a psychotherapist. I told him about my alter ego mr mws and his fantasises that never reach completion. He asked about erectile distinction and then asked if there is another area of life i feel constantly frustrated or thwarted ? I was about to tell him about my 12 year speaker woe but thought better of it, besides you can’t trust a man who’s profession is titled
Psycho-the-rapist


#516

imma go ahead and assume you meant that


#517

King Gizard and the Lizard Wizard reel Tape has arrived :slightly_smiling_face:

Suitably homemade, they’ve taped over something on a used reel and stuck a paper home printed cover on the front.

I can’t play it at the moment but it obviously sounds sublime :joy:


#518

any indication of 2T or 4T?


#519

They couldn’t have thought so - they only gave it ten out of twenty two :thinking:


#520

Gotta be 4 track :pray:


#521


#522

Get laid, buy a R2R, chicks love ‘em.
