• Again, a semi pro recorder based on a consumer model. But unlike the Teac where the difference in speed is really makes a sonic difference, the PR99 is not much different to the 2 Track High Speed B77 (B77HS). If Teac Tascam made things confusing, Revox made things incomprehensible. Of the B77 more than 60 versions where available for a wide range of purposes. The PR99mkIII was focused on the semi pro market and was mostly used for broadcasting and editing, as the tape is much easier to reach than on the regular B77. It has balanced connectors and (except for the MKI model) the PR99 has a more sophisticated transport controls with for instance loop function, location memory / zero return and tape dump. Apperently in the early 1990s the PR99 has been available as the Studer PR99. That's not completely surprising, as the mkIII version followed the mkII only to fit the looks of the new Studer line (A810, A820, etc) together with the then newly introduced Revox C270 series.more
