$430.00 AUD

KIT A80 Basic Tape Transport and Control -  For most Studer A80 1/4", 1/2" and most multi-track machines. This is the absolute minimum kit we recommend. It does not include any board mounted capacitors or resistors which are in the ESSENTIAL kit.  

This kit contains parts for the very important power supply, tape control, logic, microprocessor and transport functions together and should be considered the essential base kit to start off with:

  • Replacement capacitors for all the electrolytics  PSU can type only

  • Brand new specially manufactured non polarised motor capacitors. A80 takes 5 motor capacitors - more than any other Studer or Revox machine. 

  • All troublesome paper capacitors on drive control, switching and mains suppression

  • New mains filter module. The VU models take a larger mains filter module. 

  • New contactor relay 

 This kit caters replaces capacitors on the following circuit boards.

  • Power Supply can type capacitors

  • Contactor Board

  • Reel Motors Control Boards

  • Capstan Servo Control

  • Mains Filter module - we have a new ones made specially for us to the same specification

  • All motor chassis mounted motor capacitors

  • Basic Nagravox service sheets / manual is provided to assist you with your overhaul.   

 TOTALS:  Capacitors =16. Other Modules  = 2.   

PLEASE NOTE: There are slightly different versions for normal or VU models, single capstan, dual capstan as well as 50 or 60hz and also Normal Speed and High Speed versions.  You must specify the correct kit as motor capacitors change with hz and speed.

  • NORMAL Speed 50 hz 

  • NORMAL Speed 60 hz

  • HIGH Speed 50hz

  • HIGH Speed 60hz

  • Dual Capstan 7.5/15 Speed 50hz

  • Dual Capstan 7.5/15 Speed 60hz

  • VU model NS normal speed 50 hz

  • VU model NS normal speed 60 hz

  • VU model HS high speed 50 hz

  • VU model HS high speed 60 hz

Normal speed is 7.5" / 15" / sec. High speed is 15 / 30 "/sec.
