Old Beta or New Beta?
The following submission was received without an E-mail address, so I have
been unable to respond directly to it. Brian, I hope that you find this
here. This is not a submission per se, but I'll respond to it here.
I currently have the sls-600 but I would like to get one
of the HI-FI models. I have seen the slhf-2000 in a sony
store and thought it was beautiful. The guy at the store
told me that they sell a lot of used beta machines. He
said they occasionally get ahold of an slhf-750 or an
slhf-1000. I've heard that the slhf-2000 is not as good
as some of the older models. So I'm wondering if I should
try to get an older used model or buy an slhf-2000 which
would obviously be brand new. Does anyone have any
Current Beta Machines: sls-600
Brian, I think you'll find that the rec.video
newsgroup can be very helpful with these sorts of questions, as can the
Digest. You'll also likely find some of the older hi-fi decks for sale
in those circles, and for mighty reasonable prices. The 750 and 1000 both
have strong reputations.
