ABOVE RIGHT, The 4 mm banana sockets are 4.4 volts output at 600 ohm if you feed this output to a Stereo Nagra you must use the QCSE lead or a copy with a 47K ohm pad. Or use the 7 pin MIXER socket that has a Playback or Direct output, leads can be made to order. For the POWER PACK, you can use the 24 volts ATN power supply, the 35 volts ATN 2 or ATN 3 power supplies, or the UAP11 power supply on main page, The 3 pin XLR plug the balanced output

The recorder works from 12 x U2 batteries or external ATN mains supply (not included) see assessors 2 for power supplies

ABOVE The heads are in good order, and it has Ruby tape guides and new pinch wheel.

ABOVE RIGHT, as you can see the front panel is in poor condition, I don't know the history of this recorder and I cannot imagine how it got like that, when the inside is clean.

     

Nagra is the best reel-to-reel tape recorder ever made with the best of Swiss engineering that you are never likely to see again.
One of the joys of owning a Nagra is that it is an all in one over the shoulder recorder and when you switch it on you know it's going to work and give you a professional quality recording in any conditions.

Please note: -The Perspex lid has some scratches, and the front panel is in poor condition
