Default Revox A77 FS. NOW ONLY 200.

I've a Revox A77, I think a Mk1 or MK11. It is the rack mount version and has had all the electrolytics changed for on the most part 105 deg long life caps. It has also had new motor run caps fitted and new pots as well as new good quality replacements for the RIFA's. The heads looked in V good condition.

I've checked the oscillator and that's set to bang on 120khz but have not been able to set it up as I havn't a test tape.So it needs setting up before use.

Cosmetically i would say it's in fair condition, it has a few scuffs and scracth's on the front plate.

Asking 250 for it. Would prefer PU or FCS but could send by UPS courier - next day for approx 14. I'll double box it but assume the buyer accepts the risk involved in getting it delivered.

Andy.

You might be able to squeeze in a small mirror for the photo of the heads.
Not essential for operation, there is normally a head cover - I see this is still available
on a German website.

Hi
It looks like a Mk 4 which has useful improvements over the Mk 1 and 2. However the meters are black which does suggest a Mk1 or 2! Possibly someone's fitted a Mk4 front panel and knobs - or replaced the meters with the earlier type.
It might be worth mentioning if it's 2 or 4-track. I take it it's a standard speed version (9.5/19 cm/s)

Looked online and yes head cover is missing. There is one for sale on ebay.

A mystery? It doesn't have Dolby or the amplifier "cards" and is as you say Glyn 3.75/7.5 ips and is 2 track.

Thanks for your input, Andy.
