I have been an audiophile, or at least have tried to imitate one, since I was 13. During that time I have spent an obscene amount of discretionary and not so discretionary income on all things audio. In that pursuit I have begun enduring friendships, relationships and acquaintances both professional and personal with numerous folks. Most have been helpful and friendly, others not so much, yet big picture all have brought benefit to me, as I hope and believe I have to them.
That said, the relationship that is just beginning with Reel to Reel Heaven has already proved extraordinary. Not only are Ryan, his wise and learned father in law, and the rest of their team at the absolute top of their game when it comes to resto and refurb of all things R2R, but they are amongst the most talented, skilled, meticulous and, for a guy with 1000 questions like myself, the most patient group of guys I have had the pleasure of working with these last 50+ years!
Already, the very thought of doing business with another R2R company would clearly not only be a poor choice but a reckless one as well. These guys really know their stuff! Sure, they're in it for the money, however and more importantly they're in it to stoke the flames of passion that ignite our love of the best possible medium to duplicate music in your home or studio, and it shows.
Of note, my Otari MX5050B2ii was shipped from their MI HQ to my home in S Florida. It arrived as though it was shipped real time from Otari direct to my door with no 40 year gap in time nor a spec of dust visible anywhere, a sign that their hearts are in this, that it runs deep through their blood.
To state that they take their time to instruct their lucky purchasers in proper setup, configuration, use and most importantly maintenance of their refurbished to perfection decks is to state the obvious. They have a REQUIREMENT that all recipients of the fruits of their labor schedule a video chat so that they can, live and in real time, instruct us on the use and care of the machines we purchase so that we derive as much enjoyment out of using them as they seem to have had rebuilding them.
In a nutshell, my entire experience with R2R Heaven, from my first inquiry via email to my pleasure and pride in owning one of their fully and meticulously restored machines has been exemplary. We can all derive more enjoyment from our music on tape if we allow Reel to Reel Heaven to provide it and guide us through maximizing its potential. More than enough said here. These guys play on another level of excellence. 10/10.
I’ve been into high end audio since the mid 1970s, just a teenager at the time. I had numerous reel to reel tape decks through my home stereo business at the time, and always marveled at their ability to faithfully record any audio source, whether live or from vinyl records.
Nearly 50 years later, the time came to get “back in the game” and pick up a serious, prosumer deck and in my search I stumbled upon the folks at Reel To Reel Heaven (www.reeltoreelrestoration.com). We chatted a great deal and became friends due to our shared passion long before I pulled the trigger and purchased one of their fully restored Otari MX-5050BII-2 machines. Ryan and Ozzie have been absolutely fantastic in regard to customer service and their depth of knowledge is impressive. Being able to chat with Ozzie directly about setup and calibration has proved invaluable. The unit was meticulously packed for safe transport to Maui, Hawaii and arrived in perfect condition. Their attention to detail was immediately evident and I can’t wait to get this deck into the studio with some local bands and start showing them why tape is (still) king.
It’s a real crap shoot out there in the used reel to reel tape deck market, in regard to the condition of the machine you might be buying and how much work it may require, as well as proper packing and shipping methods to get it to you safely. Working with Reel to Reel Heaven (www.reeltoreelrestoration.com) took the guess work and uncertainty out of my purchase and they back their machines 100% with amazing customer service. I’m so happy I went with them to get a restored, reliable machine into my hands to start pursing my passion again, recording music!
Just a quick update on the Otari Mx 50 tape deck. It arrived in beautiful condition and performs flawlessly.
Packing was exceptional. I am really impressed by the sound and performance of this machine.
I continue to follow the website and see that you guys are specialized in Otari decks.
I am encouraged to buy from you guys in the future.
I almost gave up on tape after being, well, lied to, stolen from and generally left wondering by so many so called "techs". Reel to Reel Heaven is the real deal! I went to visit there showroom, OH MY GOD! Way more than just Otari's (Revox, Technics, Studer, Scully's etc) - They do business with major universities, museums and various importers throughout the world. You WERE the best kept secret but not anymore, telling ALL my friends there is finally a reliable company out there!
