Otari MX5050BQII for sale
« on: July 02, 2013, 01:24:24 PM »
Jeff Jacobs of J-Corder fame just called me. He took an Otari MX5050BQII 1/4" four channel deck in on a trade. He is (duh) a Technics guy and would like to offer someone a good deal on this deck to make more space for his restoration jobs. You can contact Jeff at [email protected]

Jeff says the transport and electronics are separate. I'm thinking a person could wire channel 1 and 2 playback head cables together and three and four together, and run those two feeds into an outboard stereo repro amp until the budget allowed for a nice two channel playback head upgrade. I'm running two groups of four tracks wired in series on a 1" 8 track repro head to make it into a 2 channel head and it works well.
