    "Problem is you need all the noise reduction associated with analog"

    Kind of a lame statement from someone who owns a MCI 1" 8 track. He's probably never used it or doesn't know anything about it. So it's a good chance you could trade him a guitar pick for it and he'll take it.
    "He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance."

    I thought that was odd myself.

    Pretty much always the key question with any machine. The value of the machine is not much different from the value of the heads in most cases (except for old Ampex machines with vacuum tube electronics).

    Cheers,

    I still need to get east one of these days. I have a friend who has the early version of one of these (some people call it "A", because later ones were "B" or "C"), and he will let me take it off his hands, provided I show up to collect it.

    Cheers,

    Otto

    If we didn't already have a C I'd be all over that! Why couldn't it have been a 500 series console instead ...who wants those noisy old things
