    That's a bargain..........Pass. I loved reel to reel in the past. It was a sound and sight experience. It fit in with albums and cassettes. Now they're just trying to get rich at our expense. Same with concert tickets.

    It's absurd, basically. Who needs tape? Nobody.

    Don't think I haven't had my eye on one of those. Biggest problem is finding one in good enough shape that doesn't break the bank and that my pre-amp's two tape loops are already occupied with a cassette deck and a component CD burner. But I did come across a box full of old factory recorded reels in a goodwill recently that I almost carried home just in case I had a way to play them someday.
