Technics RS1500US 1/4″ Analog Tape Machine

We have acquired a mint condition Technics RS1500US 1/4″ tape machine for our mastering room!  A hi-fi machine built in Japan in the early 80’s, the RS1500US is an incredible sounding deck that runs at 3 3/4, 7 1/2 and 15 ips.  With a closed loop design that is nearly unheard of (early 3M M79’s were one of the most common in use, and we have a 1/4″ version of that machine at Beach Road as well!!), this machine has the lowest wow and flutter of pretty much any deck in existence.  I’m currently in the process of building a pair of I/O balancing circuits for it and it will be rockin’ albums in our mastering room in no time!

We’re also in the process of putting together a tape baking station, so we’ll have the ability to restore vintage analog tapes for clients as well.  Long live tape!!
