Reel to reel
Another reason to own a reel. The other day, one of my expensive NOS tubes in my phono pre went belly up, and presently I can't afford another pair; now records are not so impressive.But there is good news, while the phono pre was cooking on all ...

Plus you can roll NOS tubes and get more monies worth than you paid. Notice, I stated NOS tubes because they last longer and sound better, you wont regret it.Have fun. 
DIFFICULT PROBLEM WITH A REPAIR SERVICE-
French-fries, I'm interjecting a comment from the perspective of someone who has owned many different brands of reel to reel decks, including a Teac 2000R. I'm also a retired "industrial" electronics technician who repairs his own stuff.I had no ...

The enhancement of music is never a waste for the music lover. These 15 IPS reels that were down-loaded to the computer hard-drive, are quite revealing on lesser systems; the subtle nuances are more apparent on the bedroom system for example.Musi...

That was just an experiment, and to make sure it wasn't a waste, I down-loaded it to hard-drive; those were my most select LP's.As you know, new tape can be recorded over at least once with no ill effects; consequently, I'm regarding that as blank...

I just down-loaded 4 of the 15 IPS reels that I had recorded to my hard-drive. They really sound good on play back, and I don't have to get up and put another reel on.

We have been discussing an aspect of R2R that only those who have had considerable experience are aware of, and that is the tape width and head size in relation to the audio.The effect of this is incredible; when you tell someone that it makes you...

I've been going back and forth between TT and reel today, and discovered something no one else has mentioned. This is specifically in reference to 2 track, not 1/4 track; that's because the head is wider.When comparing tape sources: cassette deck...

Gusser, I'm looking forward to hearing about your results. Taking all things into consideration, 7.5 is the best speed.

Happiness is a good working reel to reel recorder.Recently, I purchased 4 blank 10 inch reels of tape. Initially I planned to record at 7.5 for the sake of economy, but an audiophile demon caused me to set the speed at 15; "The devil made do it"....

Getting the most out of your reel requires dedication to maintenance. Fortunately it's not at all difficult, but it should be done frequently; what you can't see will hurt you; "magnetism" is something you have to be aware of.I'm a fanatic when i...

The more I play my reel the better it sounds, and this isn't imaginary; reels don't like to be left idle, they can quit working if not used.Just another reel tip.
