    Hi Mike, I would love to but they're almost impossible to get and wayyyyy to expensive, I'm just grateful to have a 1963 working machine and probably in the future the BM-2 mixer...... Regards, Gustavo

    Hi guys, I'm wondering if anyone here can help with the Nagra III service manual, I'm looking the head azimuth adjustment in particular. Thanks, Gustavo

    I'm not expert at all, but I do used lots of reel to reel machines a long these years, let me tell you how gratefully I am with the sound quality of a Nagra 1963 mono recorder, I'm not discussing terms of practicality or hi fi quality, just a beautiful vintage piece of machinery working as it should. It took me years to afford one and I love it! The thing is this machines are in high demand now, not sure if is just for the looks or history or audio quality. Gustavo

    Hi Jez, I'm glad you're getting interest in those machines, they're truly beautiful recoding/playback gadgets from 80s, by the way a good Sony WM D6C can be as expensive as a Nagra. I finally was able to get a tuchel connector for the external power supply, new fresh LPR35 tape, beautiful 7in aluminum reels and a gooseneck lamp for a dramatic illumination !

    You are right the Walkman precursor was the Sony Bm-12(78), it looks very similar to the TCM 600B(79-81) though. Gustavo

    Thanks, actually this is the Sony TCM 600B, the pre cursor of the TPS L2, the same mechanism but the recording factor and mono, I do really love the evolution till the 90s when the Logic series appears, most beautiful and Japanese micro technology. And the great but delicate Sony TCD D8 Dat walkman....

    Hi guys, its me again, I've been doing some nice 60s-70- classic rock recordings and I really love the Nagra III sound, but I do live in paradise and want to do some nature, birds recordings now, not sure what type of microphone should I get? Budget please.... Im still using my trusted Sony TC D5 ProII professional cassette recorder and enjoying with nice Walkmans I've collected.... but it's time to move to Nagra!!! Gustavo

    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
