I am the proud owner of a lone A-807, and sincerely hope it lives as long as I will... since it gets less wear and tear than me, maybe it will!

We have 7 working Studers and we've spent considerable time, effort, and money to build this capacity. If Studer were to revive a product line for the archival or studio market I probably wouldn't get a new one and I think most people that are serious about tape wouldn't either since they've already made a substantial investment in maintaining what they have. What frustrates me is the lack of parts and service. Studer spun off their parts business to Audiohouse and they can't even supply many parts and I have to buy pinch rollers from a complete lunatic that lives in a trailer in the woods (or so it seems). To support the long term viability of tape they should bring back factory service and parts as somebody else mentioned.
