    Here are my 2 ATR-102's, both purchased in 2016, both coming from studios (one in Chicago and one in San Francisco). Soren Wittrup rewired one for external playback and Krieg Wunderlich did the other. I normally have one set for 1/4" playback (with the MJQ Monterey Jazz Festival 1963 tapes) and the other for 1/2" playback (with the Tape Project Dave Alvin tapes). My Doshi tape pre is below the 1/2" machine on the right (but its power supply is on the ground below the 1/4" machine), and my very new Merrill Trident tape pre is below the 1/4" machine. The Merrill power supply is to the left, out of sight. A 4kVA Symmetical Power Supply by Marutani/512 Engineering sits on the ground below the 1/2" machine.

    I have both 1/4" and 1/2" headblocks for both machines, so I can dub tapes in any combination of 1/4" and 1/2". I had Greg Orton install a 1/4 track playback head on one of my 1/4" headblocks, so I can play 1/4 track stereo tapes if I want.
