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?

I am in Pueblo Colorado visiting my sons.
So I wanted to run some audio to my 1/4" tape machine. The Roland manual states that there are "audio outs" in the rear of the unit - they are balanced/unbalanced jacks 1/4". TS or TRS.
I've used them before for headphone monitoring etc. The manual states 0DBu nominal level, so I suppose this is under line level 4 dbu.
I recently acquired an Otari MTR-10 tape machine on Ebay. While it was promised in pristine condition, I am finding a lot of issues. One thing I ran into is that the power supply voltages labeled + and - 26 volts on the schematics (and also on the front panel indicator lamp) are actually coming out at + and - 22.5 volts.
Nvm. No one ever helps here.
Geez. you've only made five posts and two of them were to insult me and call me names.
Good work if you can get it.
I have seen these machines going for between 4-700. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on their reliability, sound, and a general opinion on them.
Also, if anyone has any info on the expansion card that seems to be so elusive I would appreciate it.
I am set to begin a project this week end on an Otari Concept One 64 ch. Having never used one before I was wondering if there is anything I should be aware of -quirks particulalr to this specific board. The owner of the studio is cranky and I dont want any unneeded flak.
Thanks to all
i keep seeing these for sale for under $300 all over the place, and I am wondering if anyone has ever used these for music/rock recording? it is almost tempting to pick one up to track some vocals or snare/kicks on them. but it is a waste of time? or are these valuable elements in a studio? i know the whole debacle on tape companies is uncertain as well...but I'm tempted...
Hi all, I have finally narrowed down the tpe of mixer that I want to purchase. THe only problem I have now is deciding whether I need to 8 channel Soundcraft fx 8 or the Soundcraft 16 channel fx 16 for my 8 track Otari reel to reel. I am mainly concerned with the ability or inability to record and monitor on the 8 channel board.
