My advice would be to look into one of the AKAI GX series of reel to reels as those have the heads that do not wear.

As far as the guy on Craig's list he wants $350 each for his Teacs.

I'm still looking and am not in any big hurry.

Keep an eye out for Technics RS-1500 or RS-1700 variants. 3 speeds including 15ips, many with switchable 4-track/2-track playback heads, excellent sound and handles tape smoothly. I owned one for 30 years that was still running strong until I placed it in a dumpster. At the time there was no interest in old R-R decks.

These are all nice suggestions for consumer-grade equipment, but Studer/Revox was built to professional standards.
Over the years, we've owned TEAC, Pioneer, Sony, Akai, Tandberg, and TASCAM, but our Revox & Studer decks were another class, entirely.

Well today I was offered the chance to but a Otari 5050 for $750 and I am thinking about it seriously. It is a 1/4 track or 2 track I guess. I will have to check it out in a week or so.
