If you were an aficionado of high end audio gear in the late 60s and 70s, you are familiar with the name Revox, whose reel to reel tape decks were prized additions on any stereo shelf because of their ability to deliver unsurpassed stereo sound. Today’s resurgence in interest in analog audio has resulted in Project R2R, a cooperation between Revox and Horch House, to design and produce the first brand new reel to reel tape deck in decades. Based on images of the design, it has the high end appearance necessary to hold a place of honor with audiophiles around the world, depending, of course, on actual performance.
Previously owned Revox tape decks are still actively traded online because, properly refurbished, they continue to deliver great analog music reproduction, but now, you’ll have the opportunity to add a new one to your home and experience analog music like it was meant to be. This should be interesting.
