Outstanding Reel to Reel Vendor
+1 on Curt.  I bought a deck from him. He was fabulous. Highly recommend him.  I have a couple of Revox B77s that I'm going to be selling. One of which was refurbished by Curt.   
Vinyl is back for good and that’s exciting
$30 in 2023 is about $11.00 in 1990 per  https://www.usinflationcalculator.com/ I'm not sure vinyl is too expensive.    
Just heard White Stripes Elephant on Reel to Reel!
@ddzstereo You make good points.  It does make you think about what type of treatment and processing the masters have gone through.   I don't golf and my other hobby (playing music) costs nothing. So, I'm not opposed to developing a collection of... 
The dangerous world of Reel-to-Reel Tape
Dare I try to offer an explanation of why some perceive R2R to sound better than the source when a vinyl or CD is put to tape. I think it's about the lens at which we listen to music.  R2R, like vinyl, takes a tiny signal and blows it up onto a b... 
Found Great Seller - Plinth for Technics 1200 GAE
Wow! The takeaway wasn't supposed to be a linguistic exercise.  Jose in Madrid just makes good wood boxy things that ensconce the 1200 G and GAE series.

Jose,  Thank you again!  I'll get pictures posted asap. It's been insanely busy here with the holidays.   Lovely base!  It fits like a glove.   
What's on your tape machine tonight?
Not tonight but very soon I will be done with my Revox PR99 MKIII and will begin with Waltz for Debby (Bill Evans Trio) Folk Singer (Muddy Waters) When I get both decks running I can make some copies of music too.  If anyone's interested in tr... 
Found Great Seller - Plinth for Technics 1200 GAE
Mine fits nicely @avanti1960.  I used an architect/engineer rule in metric and provided the craftsman a photo. He kept the tolerances down to about 2mm so you can remove or install the box at your leisure. Perfect!

@atmasphere , thank you for your technical correction.    @jmolsberg, I do. I need to update my system picks. I'll try tonight.   
So I bought the Willsenton R-800i
I'm so done with my R800i.  China Hifi no longer responds to me.  They shipped me two new bias boards as my right side pot was going nuts.  I opened the unit up to install them. Guess what?  The one on the left is a relatively painless surgery. T... 
Experience with Modwright products?
@hasmarto- That’s a great question. Unfortunately no, I haven’t. I regrettably sold that unit. It was delightful.    
Experience with Modwright products?
Modwright sounds a lot like Manley when you need service or help. Just super. That’s music to my ears.   
Experience with Modwright products?
Thank you all for the feedback!   I must say that I'm super impressed with these products.  I would love to buy them from my dealer friend--not sure I can afford them or want to spend this much. But taking them out of my system won't be easy.   ...
