Crown reel to reel collection - $14500 (Shalimar)

condition: like new
make / manufacturer: Crown
model name / number: CX-844, CX-822

(NOTE: Driving June 10, 2019 from Florida to ranch in New Mexico. Can deliver along the way.)

I researched, collected and had restored the two best Crown reel to reel tape recorders in the world.

Could not afford them in my youth and had to have them before I passed. Never used after extensive restoration.

CX-844, $8,000 obo, (can record from 8 mics or lines)
CX-822, $6,500 obo, (made to take to clubs or other venues for live recordings with 4 mics or lines)

Comes with two (2) cases of 10.5" pancake reels of never opened professional quality tape. Metal reels too.

They are better than new. Have dbx Type I capability, custom cases and all cards installed.

They are only for the highest quality audiophile. I will not respond to low-ball offers.

Check out these links if you want to know what an audiophile should about these machines:

If you're not on death's doorstep and love great music and the recording arts, these are a must-have.

Thanks. The price will never go lower so if you want the best now, contact me via Craigslist. I require verification of identity and will not respond without it. UMR
