Ampex ATR-100 opinions? maintainance, price, sounds, use

merry xmas y´all!

i saw an offer for an AMPEX ATR-100 and was wondering what this machine is about? i couldnt find too much googling and gearslutzing other than that is was one of the best mastering tape machines ever built. is the effect rather subtle or more intense? i would mainly wanna use it too beef and juice up tracks and also the master.
also its not 100 % working - supposedly the audio unit is not gettin powered up, so theres no audio at the moment. but if its something that can be fixed halfway easy and its a hell of a machine i would probably be up for it. it looks supersexy too

or should i rather look for something more common like a revox b 77 (which seem to be all around) to start my tape experiences

thanks for your advice!
