audiofreek Posted August 1, 2001 Share Posted August 1, 2001 I am trying to find 1" analog recorder to add to my DAW studio, A friend of mine is selling an MS16 for an old lady who has re-po'd it from her X-boy friend.She paid 7k for it 15 tears ago. I offered her $1200.00 but asked if I could go over it first,to make sure everything was working. I powered it up,transport and locator work perfectly,but the damn thing wouldn't pass a signal,record or play back.My fiend left it with me and asked me to see if I could find the problem? I traced the problem back to a transistor,on the power supply PCB.I replaced it and now it records and plays back! The problem is,now it won't monitor the sync/record head? She still wants $1200.00 for the machine?!I think this is unreasonable due to the current circumstances!But,this machine has very low( I think it has less than 200 hours and 3 tapes) ,but hard(I went through ten Q tips cleaning the tape path,uuhgg!!)hours on it? I could use it for a cool delay?!! Rick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
