Here’s my latest acquisition: a super-beautiful Technics RS-B965 in Champagne color.

I want to share with you my experience with Alex Nikitin, the technician from A.N.T. Audio in the UK.

I have recently acquired an impressive Pioneer RT-909 reel to reel. As it’s a 30 year-old machine, it needed a complete check and servicing as you may guess. Here’s how it arrived.

I never had seen a reel to reel machine until a few years ago. I mean, in person. I have only seen them in some books and in a few movies. My interest on them has growed in the latest years, after I discovered the incredible quality of the high-end analog audio. Many people talk […]
