Okay, so I am fielding opinions, trying to decide if I will keep this baby, or maybe offer it in the FS section.
It's a NICE unit...but I listen to it far less often than I'd like; when I come home from work, mostly I just want to plop down inside the LCDs or Grados or whichever, just push a button and start listening.
RtoR is rewarding, but it's a bit of a fuss.
The thing is BIG.
As is appropriate for the very nice, no-noise motor in there.
And it's got all it's fully functional shiny goodness, glowing VU's...it's just COOL and sounds every bit as nice as you expect from direct, high quality recording. It's a VERY nice deck, was considered top of the game back then.
Before I waste the time and the forum's space to post it up in the FS, to take it off my rack and weigh it, figure out how to package it.... I thought it might be worth while to make a thread dedicated to opinions about this lovely deck, whether there would be any interest by folks in acquiring one, whether there are very many RtoR aficionados left out there.
People do still bid on them over at eBay.... but not all that often.
I figure, if there are people who will discuss this deck here, it might make the decision easier, and also maybe spark some interest and some great discussion.
Thanks for any help getting this thread rolling.
