Both Revox's have been set up by someone who services studio machines. The difference is only small but noticeable. I would agree that the Ferrograph tape handling is not the best though.

I am pleased to report I got a virtually mint B77mk2 HS. Itís a beautiful machine and initial post purchase thought are that itís was definitely the right choice.
I only have some older Zonal tape that was thrown in with the sale and the sound is wonderful, after recording some 24/192 albums. The top end seems a little rolled off, but this is to be expected until I get it serviced (not that I think it needs it) and biased for some SM900 or similar.
My intention is to record my own music, but the result was very compelling!

Zonal 675 is wonderful stuff, but unfortunately long out of production - it is equivalent to Agfa PEM 468 and was standard wear for the BBC as its Type 200.
