condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Otari
model name / number: MX-5050 1/2" QXHD 4 Track

Selling my much loved Otari MX-5050 1/2" QXHD 4 Track Reel To Reel studio recorder. This unit dates from around 1979/80 and is in amazing condition. Everything works as it should and the cosmetic condition is excellent. It is housed in the original two-tier particle board wood veneer cabinet that is in great condition apart from two chips, one glued back (poorly) one missing (see images). It does not detract from the beauty and functionality of the classic piece of studio gear.

Please note, this is the 1/2" 4-track version of the MX-5050, not the more common 1/4" machine.

IMPORTANT: note that this machine comes with all the original and very necessary cables and connectors. These are specific to Otari machines and are very difficult to find. This machine has them all.

I no longer own any 1/2" reels of tape, so if you want to test it fully please bring your own tape and take-up reel. Motors can be demonstrated without tape and all the lights and VUs respond. The machine has been unused for quite a few years so it may be wise to have it calibrated before using in a session.

Wanna record drums to tape to liven up your mix? This is your machine!
