    Here's a photo from the movie The Conversation with the Gene Hackman character using Ampex and Uher tape recorders.

    a very cool movie :)

    Photo from IMDB.com. From a 1969 movie. Since there's a camera along side this could possibly be an early RTR videotape machine? The large knob below the left reel could facilitate editing? Bonus for a cat.

    That must not be a large knob, apparently the tape path.


    Rotating head, like your VHS or Beta VCR :# OK, like mine.

    The rotating head VCR (which made possible truly practical videotape recording as we know it) was developed by a small team at Ampex that included Ray Dolby and a fellow named Fred Pfost. I worked for Fred's son for a bit in a past life -- and, at one point, when his son and I were both between gigs for a bit, I met Fred (via his son, that is) at his house in Los Gatos. A very pleasant afternoon with an interesting character.

    I must be tired, I missed it too.

    And I studied it a little. Why have a roll of tape in the middle?...

    So HI-FI is somewhere between SHARP and SWEET???? Seen on a CL ad for an old pair of Kenwood speakers. The plate at the bottom says it's a 4 Way speaker, these must be the four ways.
