        I really don't know... but will ask Martin Berner, the Studer Master, next time when I communicate with him.

          They are rare beasts the last one sold on ebay was 8988 $ + s&h

          And then it has to be restored back to perfect working order.

            Based on my recent experience in restoring of the C37... I hate to guess what $$$ and how long it might have taken...

              Too bad someone like Ken Kessler couldn't do a book on Studer like he did for Quad and Mac! IIRC they were done to celebrate a company anniversary? Let Ken go into Studer, like he did the previous two companies, give him access to all the files pictures and let him go to town!

                  I have a (roughly) 75 page booklet that Studer/Revox issued in 1973 in honor of their 25th anniversary. Contains a lot of history and many (color) pictures of the various aspects of their manufacturing operation and products - up thru the A77 and A80 decks; and a separate 1973 catalog of their consumer products (decks/amplifiers/tuners). If these aren't already "out there somewhere" and someone would like to borrow and scan them for "us", please let me know.

                  Charles

                  BTW mentioning a "Studer - homage book"; anyone (besides me) seen the Stellavox homage book?. Quite the effort!

                    The first Studer deck. Quite an ugly duckling.

                      Seems to be a pretty advanced deck for its time. Has a lot of controls for a mono deck. What year is it?

                        The first Studer studio deck was the Studer 27. In 1951, if I recall correctly, Willi Studer began the distribution of its own products with his company called ELA AG. That same year, the first professional recorder prototype was used by the Swiss Radio to record a music festival. On that year too, Revox and Studer became 2 different entities: one for professional and the other for domestic. Incidentally, their engineers worked on both divisions and developed the domestic and professional products. That's why the Revox domestic decks are called "semi-pro" as most are almost identical with few minor details. Both divisions shared the same technology, for example: Marino Ludwig, the genius behind the A 77 mk iv version, the B 77, A 700, PR 99, B 710 and B 215 was also involved in the Studer console automation and broadcast consoles. Two of the A 810 developers, Romagna and Fiala, were also in the A 77 project, together with the engineer extraordinaire Guido Besimo. This last one gave Studer Revox their audio trademark as he designed the most important audio circuits in the company.

                        Yeah, I may not be an "Studer Master" but I have been studying the brand since the 80's, has visited their Nashville facilities once and have researched this company a lot, with access to uncommon material not available to the general public.

                        Regards.

                          By the way, here's the team who developed the A-810. Fiala and Romagna are next to Willi Studer on both sides. Those are the mechanics geniuses!
