Recent years showed a growth of supply in "Master Tape Copies". These new tapes recorded from original master recordings are considered to be the best possible source for recorded music. Several companies offer tapes like these on large (26.5 cm) open reel tape format recorded in 2 track Stereo format with prices that begin at 300 Euro. Until now the only way to enjoy these tapes was to purchase an old (used or refurbished) tape recorder. Paying attention to this growing trend a German Design firm led by Roland Schneider decided to design a new tape recorder that was presented on 4th of February 2017 in Hamburg at Norddeutsche HiFi Tage / Hortest 2017. This is the BALLFINGER M063, a brand new 2 track reel to rel tape recorder capable of speeds up to 38 cm/s that can accept tapes up to 30 cm diameter.
