  1. Hi Forrest, Are you still looking for the service manual? Chris
  2. Hi JBond, I am certainly not mad at you for posting info on the listing! If anything, I appreciate your generosity in sharing so much Nagra historical information and super photos. It has helped me immensely. I likely would not have won it anyway Will keep looking, but not holding my breath!
  3. Seller relisted at USD1000 and sold it. Too bad as I was watching this and hoped to bid on it on Monday before the end of the auction. Haven't seen one come up on the Bay before.
  4. Nagra will be showing some of their "historic" pieces as part of this year's Audio show in Munich this week. Here is a link to their teaser video with a few pics of Kudelski and a few shots of tape machines.
  5. Many thanks Dela and JBond. Makes sense to have a standard 1/8 mic jack. Appreciate the effort to take your unit's boards out and posting pics. Mystery solved. Thanks, Chris
  6. Wondering if anyone knows whether SN units with a second jack (in addition to the headphone jack) located next to the start/stop lever were a specific version or an aftermarket mod by some users. I can't seem to find any information about this jack as it is not featured on the majority of units I have seen out there. Do you happen to know anything about this option and it's purpose? There is a photo from JBond's earlier post (second photo of post 376) depicting an SN red text unit that has the second jack located near the white nylon guide roller and the start/stop button trigger. I have reviewed an SN manual online but have had no luck figuring out what this is. Anyone know? Chris
  7. This is a great mod for those who mainly use the IV-S for playback and have no use for the pilot/NRS function. You have a ballpark of what the mod cost and is it reversible (What is the extent of light machining)?
  8. Great post! Always interesting to better understand what led to the development of these amazing machines. Love the photos.
  9. Seems to have already sold for the US$6k asking price. Wow!
  10. I was watching this in hopes I might get lucky. No such luck! Beautiful machine but really surprised me that the auction went that high so I was out very early. Hope the winner is able to get it operating.
  11. Good find! Amazing what ends up in dumpsters!
  12. Yes, I'm watching that one. Seller does not know much about tape recorders - looks to be more of an estate / antique vendor so a bit of a crapshoot as to whether this unit has any functionality other than as a collectible museum piece.
  13. Also don't want to deviate much more from the thread but for those curious about the difference between the IV-S heads (wide vs standard), there is a current ebay listing for an IV-S with a second set of heads which happen to be the wide-track ones. Not really noted in the description as anything special, but these wide-track heads are desirable among some folks. I have nothing to do with this listing and find the asking price too high but it does include these heads which are probably worth about $1000 on their own. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Owner-Nagra-IV-S-Stereo-Reel-to-Reel-Recorder-w-lot-of-accessories/263466035000?hash=item3d57cca738:g:bEsAAOSwZ11ab49P
  14. Thanks for the info Glen! I'll follow up with you and Steve directly. So great to see the parts and expertise are still available to keep these great machines running!
  15. Glen, Do you know if the bias board for wide track heads is available still? I have a set of wide track heads I would like to install on a non-wide track IV-S. Many thanks Chris
