    I have one Nagra tape recorder. Wish some day it will be more.
  1. I thought that 67 means 1967. It sure is a true classic and deck top always looked more sophisticated to me than 4.2 or IV-S. Your 1958 Nagra III looks brand new. And please share a picture of that gold anodized SN. Pictures are part of what make this thread true interesting.
  2. No. I am not from Japan. The "Japanese story" is popular here. The interview is in local radio archives (as a sound file) but is also found online as a text.
  3. At least service manual for IV-S exists. Try to find one for III.
  4. Can't agree more.
  5. I was always wondering why these banana sockets were placed so strange. Back in the day going for modification was a normal thing. Thankly now one can buy many sorts of adapters which are a must have in case of using III.
  6. Hello, I just registered on this forum (but been reading this thread for a couple of months) and want so say that your collections and knwoledge are very impressive! I find this thread as the best place for source of information on vintage Nagra recorders. So here I am saying hello to everyone. By the way, have you ever heard the rumor about J.F.K. administraton buying first Nagra spy recorders in Japan? Because Nagra sound quite Japanese. After reading this thread I know it's just a rumor. But that is what I heard in one interview (not with Kudelski himself) on radio some time ago.
