As far as we know, we are the first and only company to have successfully mated the venerable Ampex MR-70 Nuvistor (tube) electronics to the world's most accurate tape transport - the Ampex ATR-100.
Our integration of these two machines is seamless in its functionality and user interface - the machine functions flawlessly. At the users option, the AMR-170 maintains the ability to be used as a purely stock, solid-state ATR-100.
The console, frame and pedestal stand are modified - made stronger to carry the significant additional weight of the electronics - all without altering the small footprint of the basic ATR-100.
Cost to build: $23,900.00
