Studer B67 VU Meter

The B67 can be considered the compact version of the A80 RC. Presented in 1973 and produced until 1982 it was replaced by its successor the A810. It shares with its elder brother A80 RC the Vu Meter and potentiometers. The functions are those available for the A80 RC in a compact version. The Edit and the Return to zero are not available here. Just lift it and you understand straight away the quality and solidity of the Studer products also in the standard rack models.

All the calibration trimmers of the boards are easily accessible behind the Vu Meter front panel that, once removed, shows the beautiful architecture made of removable modular boards inherited by the A80. On this component, "The Recorderman" has installed another feature that was not present in the original version: the possibility to select the CCIR or NAB equalization with a button on the front panel.

The B67 Series is the first step into the Studer compact recorders selection.
