As I was reading the translation, after every paragraph I was saying dang, and thought exactly the same thing.

Being the predictable bunch that we are, who's got those Reels already spinning in their system if only in imagination?

Bob.......Thanks for the frame and interior photographs, as well as the translation of the functions and engineering aspects. This is a magnificently well engineered reel to reel tape recorder. I would love to own one but doubt I can justify to cost versus my actual use. None the less, I can appreciate the overall excellence this machine represents.

IF I was going to spend that much for a R2R, I would insist it be a BallFinger.

Who is (are?) the "go to" makers of tape these days? A wonderful machine without quality tape would be a waste.
