Black or silver? What kind of condition?

IIRC, ALL Teac X series decks came standard w/ dBX.

I woudn't pay more than 350 or 400 euros for a real mint X1000R unit. If it's a X1000, less. If it's a X1000M, better to go for other pro machine.

A friend of mine paid 595 euros for a perfect X1000R black and for me was too. I paid about 420 euros for a black X2000R mint, with less than 50 hours on it.

ill see what happens but i doubt hed go for a 250au drop in price which would bring it to around 400 euro. thanks all for the heads up. i was going to buy it at 950au but glad i didnt, if this guy wont bargain down then ill just wait for something else to come along at a better price, tho having said that, it doesnt happen often here in australia let alone one i can pick up and avoid it going through the postal system

The Teac X Series tape machines are ultimate recorders, most advanced and one of the best of the world. The M machines are ideal used for the highest professional demands regarding analogue sound quality.

It is also fact that digital recorders and editing is more asked and demanded by recording engineers, studios and audio enthusiast since a few years. They came out of production. The last which was sold new was the BR-20T by TEAC company after the ultimate X-2000 Series got away from the market.

The fact ist that today these are old fashioned and outdated. You can say that nobody does care for reel to reel - most people would throw them away in the trash (!), if there would not be a minority which still cares for old things. This should be mentioned to find a fair price.

X series decks very fine when working well, not ultimate. The Tascam BR-20 is a far superior deck reliability wise. The X line all share the weak capstan motors in common and those sometimes pesky motor switches. If both have issues, parts are around $300 to cure both. X series are excellent home machines but not my favorites in heavy use. I am not knocking them but just wish to caution you on those two major X line service issues. Ultimate for me is something like a Studer A 820, an Ampex ATR 100 1/2" modded by ATR services, or a 3M M79-2 in top form. Just make sure your dream deck has good heads, trouble free motor bearings, and has been low hours and maintained.
