Ballfinger is a German-based manufacturing and design company that’s made a few watches and lamps in the past, but recently they made the news because of their interest in reviving old-school audio technology. Everyone knows you have plenty of options when it comes to a turntable for home use (we put together a list if you’re in the market), but Ballfinger is taking that emphasis on old-school tech by also making “the first newly developed [analog] tape recorder” in two and a half decades. The Tonbandmaschine M 063 (reel-to-reel tape recorder) was developed for professional use but could equally find use in a home where high design and functionality is far more important than price tag. The Tonbandmaschine M 063 was unveiled at the North German Hifi Days audio show, but does not have a U.S. release date yet.
