Revox C278? Anyone used one of these?

Discussion in 'Pro Audio Equipment' started by scott_humphrey, Aug 11, 2003.

  1. Hello,
    I just bought a Revox C278 1/2" 8-track. It was on eBay, and there was no picture of it, but the price seemed to be right...so I gambled and bought it.

    Now I've received it, and it seems to be in near mint condition. There is no visible head wear. It operates at 7.5 and 15 ips.

    So, does anyone know anything about this tape deck (quality, likes or dislikes, original price, etc.)? I can't seem to find much out about it on the internet.

    Here is a picture of one of these. I'm hoping that this will jog someone's memory:

    These were made by Studer, and I'm trying to order a manual from them, but any information in the meantime would be appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,
    Scott

    You can check out the Revox March 1993 price list (including the C278) at: http://www.johnmcculloch.net/docs/RevoxPricelist.doc. I've also got a review somewhere from about the same time - in Recording Musician I think. Contact me at http://www.johnmcculloch.net/contact.aspx if you would like me to dig it out for you.
