At AES, Studer USA announced that its A827 Gold Edition two-inch, 24-track analog tape recorder is now being temporarily offered at a special price of $29,995–nearly half off of its original list figure of $58,000.
Under the terms of this promotion, A827 Gold Editions must be purchased by no later than December 15, with delivery taken by December 31. To contact a sales rep, or to find out more about this product, go to www.studerusa.com or call 866/406-2349.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for studios to acquire a legendary Studer analog tape machine for a fraction of the original cost,” says Clayton Blick, Studer USA national sales manager. “And unlike other recorders on the used market still fetching a premium, these machines are brand new stock with zero wear on their heads and transports and a full factory warranty. We anticipate that this limited-time offer is going to make a number of studio owners very happy, indeed.”
Representing the culmination of more than 50 years of tape recorder design and manufacturing, the A827 Gold Edition is the last in Studer’s line of analog two-inch machines that included the A80, A800 and A820. The A827 features Studer’s highly optimized tape transport.
Offered in the industry-standard two-inch, 24-track format, the fully equipped A827 Gold Edition comes with a stand-mounted remote control and autolocator, 24-channel meter bridge, RS-232c interface, built-in tone generator and the Willi Studer signature nameplate designating it as a limited Gold Edition model.
