We discovered this great website dedicated to tape recording and the people who really love the sound of tape and the great tape machines. The forums include owners of cassette and reel to reel machines. It is a great site for all of you who would like to be involved in discussions about recording and it is a good  source for keeping up with what’s new. This fabulous website is the brainchild of Matt Desatoff, who is extremely knowledgeable about tape recording and tape machines. Check out out, we think you’ll find it interesting. 


I'm absolutely delighted with the results of your rebuild and upgrade of my two Technics decks.  Even set-up as playback-only and utilized for transfers of historic music tapes, the sparkling sound, crisp transients, depth and detail are remarkable, and with noticeably improved speed stability. 

This takes archival sound retrieval with the Technics platform to a new level.  Well done and well worth it.

"I am delighted with Black Magic...   You certainly packed it well and it survived the journey ok (to the UK).   I connected it up  over the weekend and put it through its paces and it performed with flying colors, silky smooth operation and on rewinding a 10.5" reel the tape alignment looked ultra flat on the reel.  I have now recorded a whole tape and I am pleased with the results for a four track.  It also looks very imposing and much larger than I recall...Once again, thank you for restoring the machine for me, your workmanship is 1st class and I will have no hesitation in telling people where it came from."

I received the machine today and I'm extremely satisfied with it. I never thought that my sound system was able to produce such a warm sound. Fantastic, and it is absolutely correct that a recording sounds better than the original. I tried it out today with an LP from around the production years of those Technics machines, Janis Ian's Miracle Row, and it was really amazing. So thanks a lot, Jeff, I'm glad that I ordered this. Also mechanically everything is working smoothly. I'm using a 230V to 110V transformator and this works perfectly, so no problems with this US version on a European electricity net. I'm looking forward to a lot of listening pleasure.
Thanks again, I will recommend your business to those who also become interested in those beautiful analog sound, and have a nice christmas.
Best Regards,
