              Very nice looking tape deck Ki.

              Great work restoring it.

                So how does a C37 sound against one of your other decks Ki? Like your A80 for instance?

                  Ki, David's a good guy. We exchanged e-mails a few times about location recording. He asked if I were interested in assisting him with a date at UCLA, some time ago.
                  Most regrettably, I was unavailable.

                    I was concentrating on making sure the transport was working properly up to now. This C37 like most of other ones in US is made for 220V 50Hz input power for Europe. So with just a 220V step-up transformer, the tranport operation can be checked out and if I were to record and playback with 220V 60Hz, it still works well. However, in order to play tapes recorded on normal machines, the playback speed is wrong due to the C37's capstan motor running faster at 60Hz.

                    This is where the PS Audio Power Plant comes in. I had an old P600 ready waiting for the C37. An external 220V step-up transformer was used but I will install an internal transformer and rewire the outlets to be 220V 50Hz.

                    I threaded Anne Bisson tape tonight. It was glorious music played through the C37 at correct speed. With its full tube electronics, it's more pleasing to my ears than the A80RC MkII. However, it's not as accurate as the A80RC MkII with a big bump in bottom end with C37.

                      Starting your own collection of rare master tape recorders is another reason why you should get into playing the tapes, Andre.
                      No other boys in the neighborhood has a C37 (yet).

                        Tape decks are like Lays Potato Chips. You can't own just one!

                        I sense though that Andre is weakening. I hear TAS is going to buy Andre a UHA deck!

                            UHA deck for Andre! What a no brainer way to start the long journey in being a tapehead!

                                We used them at Motown. I sure never saw a big bump at the low-end.

                                They were wonderful except that the stop and play buttons kept breaking. A-80s were a big disappointment. My Revox A77 was a step down from the C37 and the A-80 was a step down from that.
