MTR-12II-2 track

Im thinking about buying a Otari MTR-12II 2 track from a fellow gearslut.
I was going to buy a Studer but I thing the Otari should sound great.
Also, are the new DSD recorder by Tascam worth checking into?
What do you guys think? I want a clean smooth sound to mix country,blues some rock... Thanks!

I also have the Otari MTR-12 II. I love it. It sounds great. I only wish that more clients would have the budget for the 1/2" mixdown. With the tight budgets these days, the extra $150-$200 for the tapes for a full project can exceed a client's budget. Bring your own CD-R and a bounce to disk costs you no extra $$$. Luckily there are still enough clients out there that hear and appreciate the difference it can make.

1. I think otari sounds a bit weird, something happens in the 5hz-3k range that I dont like. I woudn't think it would sound great for something like country. I like the ATR 102 or studer better. 2. Where are you able to find tape? Our ATR 102 got back from a complete overhaul just in time for tape to vanish. I would spend the money on a crane song HEDD or the empirical labs fatso. Tape is dead unless you got some deep ass pockets.

Is that all? But you love the top three octaves, right?
