Ok vinyl affectionados move aside. This modded R2R sounds so good it’s used in professional recording studios. Whether listening to the best master dubs, making party mix tapes, or recording needle drops to preserve precious vinyl, the J-Corder is analog magic. REEL-TO-REEL TAPE DECKS have always been highly prized by audiophiles. It isn’t just the superior dynamic range, excellent signal-to-noise ratio, and all those glorious switches and buttons. Although it sells for a fraction of the cost of other customized R2R decks, the base price of $7,735 isn’t cheap. Prerecorded and blank tapes also are pricey.
