    Hi Guys, Nagra III project is done, small details. Playback RCA to Banana is working perfectly, just hooked it up to my Pioneer Rack and sounds fantastic even at lowest speed, very happy now. Thanks to all you guys for the tips!! Gustavo

    Thanks Dela for the clarification, I would like to see the pilot working just on playback but it's intended for other use.... Gustavo

    Last night I did some light reading regarding the pilot from Nagra III, I saw some videos and some of them the pilot works on playback, could be any modification or just an update on later models? Is there any way to do it? Gustavo

    Hi Jez, Sorry for any confusion here, I wasn't sure if I should sum Right and Left input signal on one cable or will be the same as using one of them for recording, I know it's a mono machine but music as far as I know is not exactly the same on both channels. Its merely for display and joy, not performance. Gustavo Completely agreed with you Philip, that BMII mixer its beautiful, probably in the future I will consider buy it, it took me years to wait for the right moment and budget to buy this Nagra III, they're high audio collectors demand and prices are proportional.

    Hi guys, I'm making the recording cable, got one technical question, Nagra accepts two banana plugs, one for ground and one for signal, should I merged both (Source) Right and Letf channels in one cable? Or should I choose right or left channel only? Thanks, Gustavo

    Great to see people taking care off for this old machines, some may need recap, new pinch rollers, demag and cleaning, maintenance is important to keep them working properly. I think reel to reel keeps its magic for its sound, but all the procedures you need to learn how to use them, splice tape, leaders, demag etc this is the different between everything else out there.
