That Muddy Waters tape looks sweeeet.


#1628

Very nice, but for $450 I would expect him to be resurrected and brought to play in my house.


#1629

Shame, but that price is for home shows on the mainland only.


#1630

Looks nice, always liked the look of Technics stuff.


#1631

Bloody remotism again


#1632

It’s an “Investment”


#1633

Well if you dub it you can just dub it to Nab.

I think the all have iec boards in them, some need populating so it shouldn’t be to much hassle to add IEC.

Also, First rule of tape club.

#1635

Is hear no evil?


#1636

Dub , I thought reggae was not available :wink:


#1637

Hearing prog is evil if that helps?


#1638

There’s no tape long enough.


#1639

Thank. Fuck. That’s saved me a bundle :smirk:


#1640

Just run it at 1/8" per hour and you’re golden


#1641

That Eric Bibb tape deserves this @edd9000 :flushed:

There are many lovely machines around, I’d love a giant studer or similar but really for now I’m happy with the Teac.

I’d be interested in making a head amp for it though.


#1643

Have you got the schematic for what’s in there? I have one for the X-3R & it isn’t that complex. Based around OpAmps. Spice could be used to sim an equivalent incorporating valves.


#1644

I haven’t looked to be honest. I just know the bottle head unit takes the feed right from the head which would be easy to do. Not sure I will ever bother, sounds pretty good to me.

Actually that’s just the output. There is more straight after the head.


#1646

On the 32-2b it appears to be discreet until the output amp with the volume control. Right after the eq and line level amp which are discreet is the dbx outputs so it seems I can use those to avoid opamps at the loss of some output gain.
