Problem with reel to reel, is that unless you want to use one to record your own music (eg band or muso) the cost of entry Is too high compared to vinyl.   As much as I would love to try an R2R i see on one hand music of 7 1/2 ips that is not what I am interested in or unaffordable new recordings.

 

if you have a stash of you uncles old tapes you could acquire for free then I say go for it.

For me, the (somewhat hidden) real news in this article is the return of a TD160-type turntable from Thorens, now called TD 1600/ 1601. Looking forward to seeing these in person. I read they become available in October. The TD 1601 is 3K Euro ($5k AUD) in Germany, which appears fair given the trend to more and more expensive turntables. I expect it will be strong competitor in its price region. And it's gorgeous!
