ATR Services Inc. has introduced a new, custom-made 2-inch 8-track headblock specifically designed to convert Studer A827 transports into high-end, surround sound mixdown and mastering recorders.

The new headblock plate, manufactured in-house by ATR Services, is machined to extremely close tolerances from a solid piece of aircraft-grade aluminum. The headblock package comes complete with a set of Flux Magnetics Mastering heads (including extended response play head) optimized for use with the Aria Reference Series Class-A discrete electronics. Designed by David Hill, Aria electronics are available separately through ATR Services.

"The A827 is a great transport, and with the addition of our Aria reference electronics and new head block, the sonics of the machine are greatly enhanced at both the 15 and 30 ips speeds,” said ATR Services president Michael Spitz. “High-definition recordings made on these modified A827s will translate perfectly to our ATR108C compact mastering decks, which are also equipped with Aria electronics.”

ATR Services also offers another version of the headblock designed for use with the 16-track 2-inch format. It includes the connector mounting bracket and the “D” connectors for plug-and-play using the stock Studer electronics. Flux Magnetics heads are standard on this version, as well.
