tape.source...My DIY audio world...
There are two parallel audio worlds: turntable and Reel-To-Reel. I like mechanic. Particularly I like good precise mechanisms used in audio devices. I regret this is a go away world. But still many Reel-To-Reel machines are use in business and probably else more by enthusiats of this audio technique. This is magical feelings to observe rotating 10,5" reels. I am still dependent on the show. If you are Reel-To-Reel enthusiast you will have a time of pleasure. If you are not Reel-To-Reel enthusiast I hope you will become him. First step are behind you: you just visit this site at my audiosite.
How it was made
Here I do not describe you how it was made like in other sites of my audiosite. Simply Reel-To-Reel is type of device which use two big tape reels to produce your lovely music when they are rotating. That's all.
