High quality / professional for on site recording.
Question: I would like to get one of the kind of recorders radio reporters used in the past to get high quality sound bites at remote locations when working news stories
Answer: I am unsure about which time aera you are aiming at: 50's or just before digital recording equipment replaced the analog (late 80's)? AM radio / FM radio? Mono or stereo? To record background sounds or interviews. To record to reel to reel tape or to cassette? Anyhow. 60's through 80's: the two most often used portable reel to reel decks were: UHER report and Nagra. Where UHER was more for every day use (interviews and speech) and Nagra as
being considerably more expensive for the film industries (remote locations sounds of any type). If wanting to go back to the 50's: I have a "potable" Berlandt vaccurm tube broadcast recording set-up (2 large heavy suit cases, and of course depending on AC power and to be stationed at location) that was the state of the art remote location recording set-up at the time.
At lower budget ranges than reeel to reel: portable pro cassette decks, where Marantz professional portable cassette decks (80's) and Sony TC-D5 took the lead in the market. With your detail in regards to above questions will be gald to discuss this further and what I could offer to you.
