Tape Tech / A77 standard & pro - tech questions
« on: February 22, 2014, 06:16:37 AM »
Hello

I may get a non working A77 pro on Monday. I know for fact that one of the reel motor is dead, but I have a few other A77 that are non working, so here is my question :

Is the reel motor on the Pro version the same that the MK1 or 3 A77?

Is the power supply the same too?

Thanks in advance,

Thomas

Tape Tech / Just got a A77 MKIII - mods & tweaks
« on: February 12, 2014, 02:57:22 PM »
Hello everyone!

I just bought a Revox A77 MKIII 2 tracks for really cheap a few days ago (60euros). It was in working condition, but I gave it a good clean from the inside to the knobs.
Looks good and plays pretty good too, even tho I am thinking of recapping it pretty soon (L & R channel are not perfectly matched).
I have a few questions for you connoiseurs :)

Is there a simple way to make it run at 15 IPS? Right now it is  3 3/4 & 7,5. I know there's a trick with the 60hz power, but I am in Europe... so 50hz here...
If there's no simple way, I am fine with 7,5 IPS for the moment.

Does anyone have more informations about bypassing the line/mic input to improve the overall sound of the unit?

What tape would you recommand? From what I read, it appears that LPR35 is a good bang for the buck.

I am planning on using it right after my summing box, before going back to Protools thru the repro head, and from what's I've heard right now it's working pretty well in that setup.

Thanks a lot in advance

Cheers

Thomas
