    Stephens Electronics Tape Decks on eBay...

    This guy has these two beautiful decks up for sale....a 2" 24 track and 1" 8 track.

    Stephens Electronics 24 channel 821B - 2 inch Tape Machine Studer Ampex | eBay

    Stephens Electronics 8 channel 811D 1 Inch Tape Machine Studer Ampex | eBay


    He's been trying to sell them for awhile now...but I think the high price is a bit over-the-top ambitious even for the Stephens.
    You might think that some "name" with money to burn would have grabbed these, if for nothing else, as collectibles...but no one so far.
    Maybe at half the price he might get some takers...but then, it's also a "pick-up" and up to the buyer to arrange... in Miami.
    Well...he is taking offers.

    Beautiful looking decks...very clean and apparently well cared for.

    Any idea what the big rotary knob is? It's numbered up to 24, but I'm not sure why you'd want to single out a track like that.

    It looks like it selects which track to change the Record/Playback and monitor state, Track/Source status, using the buttons to the right of it. I'm guessing of course, but there are only indicator lights on the 24 track, no per channel controls for these functions like on the 8 track.
