@jhonviel7381:  Hainbach introduced me to this piece of amazing technology.

@mlambrechts1:  Nice video,...but what's the point???

@mjloudspeaker:  Great show Sir, thanks. but I threw Revox reel to reel machines away like you displayed because obsolete. Cheers!

@AudioMasterclass replies to @mjloudspeaker: Take a look at eBay, see how much money you threw away.

@ahmadnaseem1874:  One of the best Audio file . You are Sir

@Stelios.Posantzis:  12:55 I can't believe sound engineers slate audiophiles all the time when they themselves come up with gimmicks of this sort...

@Stelios.Posantzis:  10:36 I guess that'd fit the bill perfectly for those wanting to save their treasured mono records - be it 33 1/3 rpm LPs or gramophone shellacs or other such media. Oh you say so yourself at 12:27 !

@Stelios.Posantzis:  Ah Nagra! It's Christmas soon isn't it? Tease audiophiles time...

@aeyb701:  Audiophile went to a Steely Dan concert. Said it wasn’t accurate enough.

@iqnill:  Fun fact, Nagra is Polish for "it will record". Mr. Kudelski, a Polish engineer chose that strange, yet good sounding word as the name of his recorders.

@arcyex9661:  As a sound editor/field recordist for last 35 yrs,been through most of the transitions in tech. During covid i went a bit nuts and grabbed almost every nagra i grew up with! all the 4's,even found a nice IS machine, then i found a
E machine and fell in love. so easy to use and teach to helpers on field sessions. Of course when getting payed gigs the Sound Devices boxes come out to play, but i still incorporate a Nagra when possible!

@bartonyount9421:  You are a hoot! I enjoy watching your channel.

@dougg1075:  I’m from the South of America. And the heat is brutal:)

@markphilpot8734:  Nagra is hardcore. I have two Revox decks so I kinda get it. The Nagra is a a deck for pros, not consumers. It requires a professional mindset and, like you explained, must know the pin arrangement of the inputs. I would drool for an A80 as it represents a pinnacle mastering machine. There are stereo Nagra machines, but unless you have megabucks, that’s not happening. Nagra is too serious for non professional use. Mono works for some things, but I prefer stereo for audio reproduction. Nagra build quality is unquestionable. I’ll love my Revox decks and be happy in them thank you.

@ksteiger:  Digital is lifeless, soulless and stone cold frigid... in other words accurate. I've been saying this for years my friend. Thanks for backing me up.

@Garry646:  Shitpost
1. (noun) any content on the internet whose humor derives from its surreal nature and/or its lack of clear context. Differs from a meme: whereas a meme's humor comes from its repeatability, a shitpost is funny simply because it isn't a predictable repetition of an existing form. Shitposts can become memes, but memes cannot become shitposts.

@jackhreha4907:  In the real old days they recorded in 35 mm film. Talk about a big buck thing ! I know i am on my way to audio hell. With little or no money because i live in seattle for the reason i love my grandaughter, I have found that if you take an old sony stero betamax covert it to audio you almost sound like you know what your doing.

@MaltLiquor45:  Grown up M3GAN is creepy

@ericberger6966:  Nice trigger. 🙂 Nagra build the best recorder, but not the Nagra E, it is the Nagra T. I love your stories of real life in the 1980s, and your british humour makes my day.

@allanemery310:  I like your posts. Thank you. I would like to confess my brother is a snob. He loves the sound of AB tube amps with huge transformers and lots of power driving huge expensive speakers using an analog source. To him, that is great sound. That is what he was told was high fidelity for years and he internalized it. I have an exceptional ear and the sound of a type D amp playing a digital source better creates the sound of the instruments and voices played through well made medium sized speakers that are properly placed. Yet, nobody is holding them up as them as the best, because they sell for way less and they'd rather sell the more expensive tube amp and large speakers than the solid state amp and the medium sized speakers. In the end, whatever you love is what you should have. When I was 8 I would listen to WLS Chicago on my transistor radio and think I had it made. The truth is it is all relative to what you personally like. Who cares why? The best system is the one that best satisfies you.

@markboyle9941:  Reel to reel is a pain in the arse. Nagra might be OK but it aint a Studer. Sticky shed anyone?? Revox tape machines are fine until Rifa madness sets in and the whole thing goes up in a puff of acrid electrolyte smoke.

@AudioMasterclass replies to @markboyle9941: I think that sticky shed, which I've suffered myself, is more to do with the tape than the machine although I'd say it's just within possibility that some machines might aggravate it more. DM

@marcelocampoamor4761:  You are a very nice person with your style and presentation, you also achieve what very few do, you throw bait in all your videos and everyone is happy.

@_Scintill8tor:  What is your professional opinion on Tandberg machines? Were they considered top range? I got a TD20a, including remote.

@AudioMasterclass replies to @_Scintill8tor: I don't know from experience but if I look at it seems to compare well with a Revox and you could certainly make professional recordings on those. DM

@nicoras8803:  A pity it is mono. I will have to design some synchronising circuit to use two for stereo 🤣🤣

@NONFamers:  I have a Nagra IS ("Idioten Sicher") obtained from a flea market held by DR, the Danish National Broadcasting Corporation for like £50. Back in the day, when these machines were brand new, they went for something like £6000. Quite a bargain. The (pretty well-known) danish journalist who sold it to me claimed it was virtually indestructible! I had an epiphany of the Earth being destroyed and the only thing left would be a spherical cloud of Nagra recorders...

@sparky60ful:  I own 2 Nagra E's. They look just as well used as yours. They are in need of some TLC. Maybe this video is inspiring to get started. Parts I have in abundance including the original "in the field" parts supplied with te recorder.

@lyntedrockley7295:  Nothing sounds better than a NAGRA........ except a DAT.
So I understand it was originally a Polish company, or Mr Nagra was Polish (though Nagra is a name often found in India). Steve McQueen (the Hollywood actor) came across an early tape recorder by the company when filming on location in Poland. Impressed with its quality, portability and robustness he took one back to the LA studios, where it quickly became the de-facto kit for live sound recording for film.
Now whether this was before or because of pilot tone and the Nagra's ability to record synchronised sound or whether that came later as the demands for using it for film work I'd be interested to find out.
Its interesting that it ends up in Lausanne, where its pedigree of ultra precision design could be compared to a Swiss Watch. And its interesting that Stellavox, though adopting a similar aesthetic and making machines of comparable quality, never really made inroads into Nagra's main customer base, film and tv.
I always thought the E was a bit of a step backward compared to the III and IV in all their variants. An attempt to make a 'cutdown' cheaper and easier to run version of the industry workhorses. Its interesting to see Nagra's trademark precision styling in modern context. Compare its internal circuit board with that of a laptop to see how far things have progressed.

@monsterrun:  Just use 2 and then play your tapes like 2 monobloc dac's lol.

@jerrythornton7167:  Interesting use of AI for the company-provided information. It's almost real but not quite.

@ReasonablySane:  It sounds like fun, and I considered equivalent of using a film camera to take pictures. And my friend has some vintage Leica cameras for exactly that.

@ReasonablySane:  I finished my 16 by 30 audiophile room a few months ago and I just realized I painted the walls the same color as yours. I love that look.

@scottlowell493:  Nagra makes cool looking gear, I've always referred to it as "laboratory chic". Nagra components looks like nice lab test equipment.

@offthebeatentracks4515:  Love the girl. That kind of thing would be perfect for my channel but everyone Avatar provider I've looked at are ridiculously espensive. Which one do you have? (I won't poach her from you.)

@basspig:  Any so-called audio file that believes that tape and vinyl are more accurate or sound better closer to the original performance then the best digital methods offer is an audio fool.

@billwall267:  interesting and entertaining look at this piece of equipment. i hope your tongue-in-cheek review gets some ebay sellers a few more sweet sweet audiophool bucks.

@AudioMasterclass replies to @billwall267: It's kind of not tongue in cheek. Nagra recorders were great in their day and if someone wants to own a piece of history then why not? I have a 78 'picnic gramophone' that comes out every so often for a bit of fun. I'd compare it with that. Whether anyone would want to own a Nagra, even a IVS, for serious listening, I can't really imagine. DM

@billwall267 replies to @billwall267: @@AudioMasterclass oh i have no doubt they're great for what they are. i assumed it was tongue in cheek because you hammered on the headaches of owning and using one as much as its positive qualities (which aren't really relevant in the current year). i'm all for retro technology as a hobby, though. guess i misunderstood.

@4Nanook:  We're all entitled to our opinion, as far as tape recorders go, I much prefer Tandberg which can produce good highs even at 1-7/8th IPS tape speeds. Crossfield bias eliminates the self-erasure of highs due to the bias signal that occurs on normal tape recorders.

@xvdifug:  Obviously a NAGRA centric video, Yet no mention of Stellavox?

@peters7949:  Re passing the audio from your DAW through the Nagra E ‘warm up’ ten sound.
I was technical manager of a major pop studio in the 1980s, when mixing to PCM1610, PCMF1 or DAT, often the stereo mix would be passed through an A80RC 1/2” running at 30ips on route to the digital mastering machine,
