    How long have you use it?
    It look good Advent calibration can truly be used.

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    Most: strength, modular components, inputs and balanced outputs, the look ...
    Least: a lot of maintenance and regular maintenance is the key to take full advantage of the advanced settings need extremely precise and regular and spare parts are expensive.

    Have you tried many other models before buying it? How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ..
    No, this is my first tape recorder.

    I also have a B77 and even if they bcp in common, there is no photo. the PR99 finishes are much better and use is really oriented pro.
    The purchase money: great but it is better to be a little handy and spend time to read the maintenance manuals: ftp.studer.ch

    I recovered a year ago, in attics. With, I had a B77 (her brother). With both, I made one, keeping the best of each. Mechanics is that of B77, the audio, that of 99. Material of excellent craftsmanship, solid. We like the total absence of belts, sound, true.

    Device not to throw, but back on the road! DVR does not happen to him today at the ankle.

    Weakness: the three motor starting capacitors, they are great demands in reading, and as they are mounted parallel to the engines, they are never standing (or lying, or upside down), so end up sinking. We must think about changing them if they have a weird head.

    I use it for over a year. What about him except that the sound is typical of magntos band, ie warm, full and dynamic.
    In dpart, I found the noise a little Gnant (it does not possde Systm rduction of noise) but since I bought a denoiser dbx 150 Type I, which makes it even quieter and dynamic. I can now do the editing, copy numrique or make direct contact with no audible breath (S / N observation of dynamic analyzer 95.6db 99.5db).
    The trs trs pramps are good and you can "get into it" before the distortion becomes audible.
    Reliability is an issue Studer / Revox So you buy it, you do rgler maintenance shop and say goodbye to the technician because it is not to see you again ... prs

    For résumé,

    Weaknesses:
    - As with any sharp instrument, it rclame minimal attention (among other heads of nttoyage frquent trs)
    - Calibration according to the band magntique uses a fairly sharp and ncessitant ossillo.
    - The price. It is hard to find trs Used in perfect state.
    A model in a perfect state and rcemment rvis is hardly less than in 1000 on the market of OCCAZ.

    Strengths:
    - Musicalitbr /> - reliability (if properly performed maintenance)
    - XLR connectors symtrique
    - Extensive Career Guidance (check manual or auto-caliber direct sound recording with micro pramps worthy of the name, many of posibilit rglages, including adapting the selected band etc. ...).

    Something is, the devices of the brand is so pro t utiliss in that one can still find all the spices and to perform maintenance without problem among specialist in maintenance of pro gear (at least in Paris ...). I have also seen several times in Audio Service A77 MODELS 1974 under renovating.

    CAUTION: If you are looking for a watch to MODEL. The unit as the basis destiny to mix and broadcast studios, and our answer to requests from some pros, Studer / Revox has produced a number of driv MODEL base (eg MODEL mono, MODEL read-only, MODEL MODEL CUSTOMER record without pramps microphones etc ...)

    This magnetic tape is available in multiple versions, mine is a two CCIR channels in 19 and 38 cm / s, an almost universal version. The machine has a tape counter microprocessor as the larger models at 800.
    The display is made of six "digits" (hours, minutes, seconds) and "display" Electro. The display range covers a great period of -9.59.59. to 29.59.59. A touch Z-LOC can find in the fast coil and to a much more accurate than a B77 MK2, the position of band corresponding to the display 0.00.00. Similarly, A-LOC can be achieved in the same condition any programmed position, whose address can be determined by the transfer of meter data in memory by the function TRANS or the introduction by…

    It should be noted that the memory address of the location system is systematically recalculated at each reset the counter ..
    Apart from the sound, one of the best performances is the quality of web guiding and heads thus leading to the performance above all suspicion.
    With regard to the sound, the dynamics typical of tape recorders is naturally present in this model, as well as inimitable color, that being said, the natural compression of magnetic tape has a lot to ..
    A wonderful device that requires still a little maintenance to preserve its qualities.
