New Nagra VII this month???

I am starting a thread hoping to find out when a new Nagra VII can be purchased. If anyone has any news of updates to the VI, that is welcome as well.
THANKS!

If you get in contact with Matthieu Latour at Nagra, I'm sure he can advise you about the Nagra Seven with the new metal front. Have not heard anything about updates to the Nagra VI.

Nagra is now a hi-fi company.

If they discontinue the field recorders, the VI and the EMP will be just as sought after as the IV-S in years to come.

Not sure why you mention the word "discontinue?"

Nagra never said that. I never said it.

They feature the machines in all their promos.

Exclamation

Seeing as the portable recorder is the essence of Nagra (and where they got their name from) it would be a very sad day if they ever stopped making them.

It was the very first product that Nagra made and they started because Stefan Kudelski (then still a student) won the very first International Amateur Recording Contest with a recorder that he made himself and Swiss Radio were so impressed that they asked him to make some for them - and so Nagra started...

Because when someone like you, who has long-standing ties to Nagra, says things like “Nagra has become a Hi-fi company.”, I take you at your word. And if that really is the strategy, it’s hard to see where there will be room for the recorders, especially if the revenue isn’t there, which it probably isn’t, at least compared to the hi-fi line.

On the other hand, Nagra not making a recorder would be like Land Rover no longer making 4x4s. The recorders are icons of their corporate identity.

Their recorders are reassuringly featured as playback devices in demonstrations of their hifi gear at audiophile shows and similar. They seem to like the start-to-end marketing notion - it’s certainly something that not many other manufacturers can boast.

Mentioning discontinue is akin to starting a rumor.

The top top management of the company and the owner told me in person that recorders will always have pride of place.

Because the company is highly capable, all the product lines, including their biggest business, “security,” can coexist while they address each market with expertise.

although nagra has been struggeling a bit in recent months/years (not for the first time/as reported in the financial press), we should be glad that they are willing to cross-finance our beloved line of über toys - and obviously have plans to keep on doing so!

I noticed that the touch screen and main screen layout were quite different on the new 7 vs. the older Seven and wondering if it will be possible to upgrade to the new screen. Maybe Nagra will offer an update but they seem to forget about older models when a newer one comes out. Most times any emails that I sent to them were unanswered, great customer service!

The screen interface does not seem to be any different from my Seven (which I bought about a year ago).

The subtext seems to be: "We're still here, we've been benchmark-setters for a long time, we don't have any new products on the horizon...but what we do produce (and will continue to do so) is still top-shelf recording equipment...and we have no plans to shut down"

The hidden subtext might be: 'We've been watching all this Zoom and SD lower-priced gear erode into our sales in recent years, but frankly...they're welcome to that end of the market. While the overall market continues to grow, we believe our position at the top of the ladder is assured for some time to come yet'.

I watched the video again and the main screen looks less cluttered then on my Seven which is about 3 1/2 years old.

Have you installed the latest software (v 2.1.1)?

Thanks Vunz, don't have the latest update installed, maybe that will update the main screen too.

No unit. No communication. I will be looking to Sonosax or the new SD Scorpion.

Ask directly at Audio Technology Switzerland about the new face plate for the Nagra Seven. I believe that, yes, it is available.

Another three months down the track ...

I have sent an email query to Matthieu, and will advise the response (if any ...)

PS. ... when he comes back early next month "from holiday in a remote location" - and hopefully not baked to a crisp .

The new Nagra Seven, if there is one, is the same Nagra Seven as now.
It's just that the new one is listed at $5500, and the same one, without the new front and knobs, is $3000. The new Nagra Seven is for the high end hi-fi crowd.

So not one change in the audio quality! Interesting. Thanks.
