NAB Hubs for the T-Audio
« on: November 20, 2011, 09:02:21 AM »
Hi,

Was going to bid on T-Audio NAB hubs and a meter bridge on eBay  but it seems that the prices  ended up little too high (?) , 2600 USD for the hubs and 6789 USD for the meter bridge,  I am new to the Nagra T-Audio but is this the price to be paid for these accessories  ?
Is there any special with these items ?

Hi Hani:

It's a basic supply and demand situation - not to mention Doc B's stellar demo of the TP tapes at the major audio shows using his Nagra T having boosted interest level for the machine, IMHO.

The CINE adapters for the T used to sell for around $400 a pair but the last one sold for more.  The metal NAB hubs used to sell for around $800 if my memory serves me right.  The meterbridges went for around $1,500 but that was more than a year ago - a long time in the scale of tape time. ;-)

For Sale: Doc B.'s personal Nagra T Audio.
Yup, that's right , the one that started the entire movement. As you can see prices are rising at an astronomical rate. Grab this beauty now for the bargain price of $150,000, before ebay auctions drive the prices even higher...

Hi Ki,

Thanks for the information,  I aquired the T-audio f?r less than the price of the NAB hubs! I have bought revox alu NAB hubs for 140 USD and they worked great for me.
