    J M you are cross posting and this is frowned upon on here, meaning please do not ask the same question in 3 different threads, sit tight and someone will respond to your question. :p:

    If you have access to the A807 it's probably a better bet.
    PR99 is a semi-pro machine. A807 is a professional machine. The cost of the machines reflects this. I assume you are using 1/4" machines.

    A807 has better heads/frequency response and is likely to be much newer and therefore have less headwear - though this may not be the case if it has been used in a professional environment for several years - lots of hours clocked up.

    A807 also has better transport system - better motors, electronic tape tension sensing, electronic braking etc. that PR99 does not.
    It's also a lot simpler to line up an A807 using push buttons rather than having to tweak individual pots on the PR99.

    Hope this helps.
