Hello AVMMers:

Sorry for the newbieness:
I have a few questions: (1) is Revox still in business (no luck on the

Revox is now Studer-Revox.

(2) how scarce/expensive are parts for 20-year-old R2R decks in

parts are both scarce and expensive. A recent repair of a Revox
machine needed only a single chip, but the part was over $100.

(4) if it's not worth sticking with the old
machines (for making archive dupes!), who is making decent 1/4" decks
Don't bother buying one. Rent a 1/2" machine from a good audio house
and make your archivals.  Or buy a reconditioned used one. There are
no reliable mfgrs of 1/4" machines today.

(My husband's company is in the audio business, both selling and
repairing audio equipment of all types, but not in your area.)
