Banana jacks on Nagra 4.2 power supply

Recommended Posts

Not on the 4.2, those are for audio output.


There also appear to be two jacks on the power supply.


Any thoughts as to what they do?

Right after I graduated from SUNY Purchase, I got hired to record sound on a feature ("Burnzy's Last Call") made by a bunch of Purchase alumn. It was a smartly produced low-budget feature - 90% of it took place in one location, a bar. They took over the whole brownstone building and put the editing rooms on the second floor.


I bought an old MTE? 16mm dubber from Matt Price and installed it on the second floor. After each shooting day, I would go upstairs and transfer the 1/4" to mag, and give it to the assistant editor (also a friend from Purchase).


It was grueling but incredibly gratifying.


I gave the dubber away and last I heard it was put on the curb to be picked up with the rest of the bulk garbage.
