  • The Studer A80VU MKII in "video" action

    As mentioned the thread post here: Videos of tape decks playing music are coming - Audionirvana.org

    This post also has one system video of the analog frontend playing the entire Scheherazade 2nd movement Reiner conducting the Chicago Symphony for perspective.

    Per the mention in the "Videos of tape decks playing music are coming" thread, I decided to share a few videos of the tape decks I've acquired and restored/worked on.


    The third deck for these posts will be my Studer A80VU MKII.

    For information on my acquisition and repairs/restoration of the Studer A80VU MKII, you can review a thread of items worked on here: I'm In, Part 4. Studer A80 VU MK II, Beans Spilled Everywhere... - Audionirvana.org

    NOTE: Select 1080p HD for playback video quality for best sound

    The first and second videos show the Studer A80VU MKII in operation with the playback up close to the deck in front of the speakers but not in the listening position:
    • The first video is a performance by Basie.

    The third and forth video will show the Studer A80VU MKII in operation with the playback up close to the deck (with bonus A 820 images) in front of the main speakers location towards the right wall of the listening room.
    • This third video is part 1 of a Jazz piece by Chet Baker that I recorded from an AP test pressing LP.
