  • For sale: Studer A80RC MkII by ATAE

    This is as "NEW" Studer A80RC MKII offered by Fred Thal of ATAE.



    Although it is not a cheap machine, if you are looking for a no worries master recorder with warranty, I think it's a good one.

    Here's the link with more photos:

    I have no commercial ties to the sale - just trying to help Fred reach quality audience.

    Thanks,
    Ki

      I would love to hear the deck though. Have you ever heard one of Fred's decks Ki? I think Fred set up Mikel's Studers at one time?

        I think Fred's Studer machines are in a different league from everyone else's Studer machines. I have had long email correspondence and telephone conversations with Fred over several months and he is literally a perfectionist (which I like) about his Studers. He also starts with unusually clean and low-mileage machines.

        When I began researching Studers I identified and spoke with several of the world's experts on Studers (e.g., Andreas Kuhn, Roger Ginsley) and Fred's work is greatly respected by all of them.

          I don't think there's any argument about that. I think Fred runs/ran the Studer list.

              Yes, Mike's 1/4" Studer A820 was completely rebuilt by Fred. It is a gem with no issues.

              As I always tell people, if one believes in properly working turntable vs questionable one with same tonearms and cartridges would make a difference in sonic performance, that's the difference one would hear from different tape transports.

              Fred told me he is no longer offering the rebuild services instead he will be focusing on remanufacturing of Studers at his new factory (that is old Pass Labs factory).
