In horology, a tourbillon (French: “whirlwind”) is an addition to the mechanics of a watch lever escapement to increase accuracy. It was developed around 1795 and patented by the French-Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet on June 26, 1801.
The Metaxas & Sins T-RX Analog Tape Reproducer is the fi rst Tape Recorder to use the same concept to absolutely regulate the speed of the tape through the use of An ARM-CORTEX “controller” which synchronises the 4 Maxon motors [2 reel motors and 2 capstan motors] with the 2 linear ACTUONIX motors which control the “Dual-Capstan” rollers on a fully retractable bar.
It is an entirely newly designed professional reel to reel tape location recorder and playback machine that meets and exceeeds the highest demands of recording engineers and the most serious audiophiles.
It is a tool to record and playback magnetic tape at the absolute highest levels.
The T-RX also combines the highest precision “milgauss” stainless steel mechanical parts mounted onto a chassis which is CNC’d from a solid block of aluminium.
The audio “soul” of the TRX electronics borrow from intensive recording work conducted over the past 35 years with Swiss Stellavox portable recorders which use singleended transistor purist electronic paths developed in the 1960s.
The result is a machine that is capable of recording and playback with a level of realism that gives the listener the sense of being present at the live music performance in it’s original venue. Combining 2020’s technology with 1960’s “soul”
