Some people argue that this is the best sounding tape machine ever made. Personally, I've never heard better. Redwood City's finest. All discrete audio path. Fully recapped. Features PURC bias cards on last 4 tracks for seamless punching.

Film industry standard for decades. This is the stereo IV-S version. Polish designed and Swiss built. Smithsonian Folkways uses this recorder to playback very fragile old tapes from their archive because of its gentle transport. Excellent sound quality in a very small and portable package.  Please inquire about availability.
