    Ok, picked up this with remote, extra cards, 8 rolls of Quantagy (1) not open, MRL Cal tape, Degauser, splice blck, +4 interface and take up reels. Got it for 700, thing looks practically brand new. OK, so I did a quick test to pass some audio straight out of my la 610 with a beta 57 on an acoustic, just to see if I could get everything going, I did. Wow, the difference is insane in depth, I just had to share this as I have never tracked to tape before. Good bye

    I guess Steve left digital so fast he didn't finish his post. We'll miss you Steve! (echo)

    Steve, you could be starting a trend here. You sound like a prime candidate for being a vintage moderator.
    Even if I wanted to go back to tape I couldn't buy it here without issues. I doubt I'll be going this direction but I hope it grows because there is nothing more inspiring than hearing how thrilled you are. Now you know why some of us are all so pissed off with what digital has done to us.
