$ 600 for a 2 Track Reel to Reel?

I'm looking to buy a Reel to Reel Machine to record my Mixdowns from a Tascam M 2600 MKII. I'd love to buy a Studer A 800 but it is too expensive. Any suggestions which machine is in my price range?

I like it to have symmetrical inputs if possible...

Yeah, I think the Otari MX5050 usually sells for around $400. That is a better machine than the consumer decks often spoken of around here.

Revox pr99 fits in that price bracket
Has balanced in/outs and cali function
Also runs at 15ips, great machines for the price.

Lots of parts still available

I have an Otari MTR - 12 that is awesome. But the size of an ATM machine. Honestly a small price to pay for how good it makes everything I record.
