The 810 is a 1/4" machine, different can of worms.


Yes this is a 1/4" master recorder. Originally intended for stereo mixdowns/mastering. Uses more tape area then a the standard 2" 24trk for tracking. ( = higher quality) This is the equivalent of a 2" 16 track.
As you know Nebula give us the ability to easily do the impractical, like having as many 1/4" tracks as desired.
The fun thing about tape is that all machines sound different based on setup & tape formula.
I have a few other decks to capture as well.
*Studer A810, 1/4" 2track. (working on this now)
*Studer A820, 24 + 16track headstack
*Otari MTR-12 1/4" 2 Track
*STUDER A807 Mk II, 4 Channel 1/2"
*NAGRA 1/4" master recorder (love this guy)

Will you be sampling the Nagra next (I assume it's the IV-S)? -very nice sounding machine...

I don't think the A810 was originally intended for mastering. It was Studer's "compact" machine and was often used for broadcasting...

Better yet, It's the studio racked "Nagra T-Audio"

Oh wow that is incredibly exciting!! I have heard tape nerds say this is the best sounding deck ever made.

These are sounding very euphonic.

Look forward to the full release.

Great technical archive of the original marketing, but the guys opinion in the 1st section is a bit misleading. The a810 has a near identical signal path to the a820. I prefer the sound of this deck @ 30ips over the a820 & 30ips. Might be do to this a810 being the transformer model. Not technically as clean, but I enjoy transformer color in general. But the a820 just kills for multitrack drum work @ 15ips. The main differences are in transport functionality, & meter bridge. The a810 was deigned to fit into a 19" rack environment. Every deck has it's ideal application. Over the years when gear finds it's "place" Archive & Music have different needs.
