audiotape playback perfected

ATAE designs and builds hardware for the optimum
playback of legacy analog music master tapes.



Our mission is to help preserve the treasure from the golden age of music recording, half a century's worth of original analog master tapes stored in record company archives.

These irreplaceable tapes are deteriorating due to age and becoming increasingly fragile. Playing them back responsibly demands specialized hardware and expertise.

Few people know how good legacy analog master tapes can actually sound. We hope the state-of-the-art tape playback hardware we're building changes that.
