Absolutely fabulous machines - I owned two, a full-track (5000F) and a stereo (5000S). Bought both of them in 1967 brand new and used them until the mid-1980's. Crossfield heads worked really well compared to Ampex. Incredibly powerful motors, you had to stand back when rewinding or you could get hurt.
