    Greetings, all:

    Recent purchaser of an Otari MX-80 24-track desperately seeking a 16-track headstack for it. I'm getting the sense they may be hard to come by. Anyone have any leads/suggestions?

    Yep, I'm sure he has the heads, but I'm looking for the entire assembly/unit from a machine. Buying that "new/old stock" (if possible) would surely be a pricy beast, so I'd hope to find a used unit first. I'd already contacted him in the meantime, however.

    Indeed, I've now heard back from JRF, and they've got customers trying to find the same head stacks, too. The search goes on. Any leads much appreciated.
