audiotape playback perfected

Thousands of original master tapes survive in record label storage vaults today.

Yet almost no one has heard these legacy recordings played back in their highest fidelity.

The machine (known as a reproducer) used for the playback of a master tape greatly influences the perceived sound quality. You don’t have to trust your ears. The distortions introduced in analog tape playback are readily measurable.

Adolph Thal Audio Engineering (ATAE) has been designing and building reproducers since 1987. The Model Two is our newest state-of-the-art platform designed for damage-free playback of high value master tapes.

With the lowest unweighted wide-band flutter of any analog audio tape machine ever produced, the Model Two permits uncompromised content retrieval. Now you can hear everything that’s hidden on heritage music recordings for the very first time.
