Hi there people,
I'm just trying to make a request for manual and schematic on an Ampex fine line f-44. It's a great old machine with half track stereo recording, and line in and out via a stereo tube amp. It also has speakers in it. It's 1950's(?)portable, so it weighs in at about 7000001 lbs. Of course, being the fool I am, I love it. Unfortunately it is in a sort of constant need of repair/upkeep condition and I can't afford to keep taking it to guys that say it's all fixed up when it ain't! To be fair, only one of them actually ripped me off, it's likely that the last guy did the best he could and the problem is really the age of the thing. Either way I'm ready to become the captain of my own ship(and I'm gonna need some charts!)
There, my first attempt at communicating with people on line that I've never met. I hope I got it right. This HiFi Engine thing is awesome, my compliments to all involved.
Thank you.
