We had a Studer Dyaxis at WXXI. Revolutionary, that's how we felt about it.
So costly that there was only one. Big honking CRT, but to meet budget, B&W.

Started with IMS Dyaxis in about 1987/8- Mac FX with a whopping 2 megs
of ram and a pair of 300 MB SCSI drives.
Quickly moved to Lexicon Opus and Sonic Solutions on a Quadra 900 with
8 megs of ram with in 1990 when I started at Soundmirror.
O the wonders of early digital.
All the best,
