    So I live near San Fransisco......Yesterday I was driving down to San Jose and saw these builidings and their huge sign said AMPEX. I don't follow this kind of thing, but didn't Quantegy buy them out? If Ampex is still going, what do they do now? No one seems to be making any reel to reel recorders anymore, and quantegy seems to have taken over the tape buiseness, right?

    They’re an information technology company now.

    They never went out of business they just stopped making analog tape decks and sold their magnetic tape division to Quantegy.
