Studer A80 R

The Studer A80 is the Master Recorder that is most present in the history of recording: produced from 1970 until 1988, starting with the 1/4 inch mono version, up to the 2 inches 24 tracks. It has inherited the "Legend" of the Studer brand that begun with C37 tubes recorder and remained the main protagonist in the world of analog recording until the advent and spreading of the digital recording.

Its structure is without compromise, as it always is with Studer products: the available working spaces and the tape path are the best possible to manage in a gentle and quick way the magnetic support, especially when the tapes are old and delicate. The features available are the essential ones, therefore this reel to reel recorder is ideal for all those that have never used a professional reel to reel recorder.

The performances are those that one expects from a Master Recorder that has recorded countless international hits of all music genres. The A80R has a trolley with wheels and all its parts are easily accessible for
