This is the LARGEST and BEST selection of
PRO Tape Recorder Manuals and Schematics on the web

Email me if a Link goes down again....
or if you have problems with a given Host for a file.

I have been using as a host for the downloads...
But today (August 09,2018) I could not even get to the Mega front page.
This is hopefully going to get fixed by Mega....
But if YOU are having problems
downloading from Mega PLEASE LET ME KNOW ......

If the problem persists I may have to move ALL my files to another host.... lots of work !!!

all these files are completely FREE DOWNLOADS

 NOTE:   You do NOT need to Purchase ANYTHING from the HOST company
to download these files... all can be downloaded for FREE...

You will have to enter a captcha and wait about 30 seconds


So think about the Tip Jar please   !!!!!
New Manuals and Schematics are added almost every week....

Also - I cannot email manuals or Schematics to everyone who wants them..
Sorry it is just too much work and takes too much of my time.

Note:  Some large manuals may have been split into 2 or 3 files -
if so you will need to download ALL files for that Manual before opening the 'rar' file
note you CANNOT open a split file until you have ALL the parts in the same folder!
then you open just the FIRST file and it will automatically open all the others....
    Each Zip or Rar file has a password which you'll need to use to open
the Zip or Rar file... the password for now is:
Note the password is case-specific - you must capitalize the A and the R !!
Also there are no spaces before or after


  Some MAC based programs do not open 'rar' files correctly - so if you keep trying
to open a file and are sure you are using the correct password ( ) AND
have downloaded all the parts if it's a multi-part file -- try using another program
to expand the 'rar' file.... or get a friend to open it with their computer.
All these files have been tested and open correctly !!!!


Tip Jar   !!!
Everything on my site is free...
But some very nice folks have asked how to send money or a gift in exchange for
all the time and work it takes to do all those manual scans....
and all the pages on Analog Recording tips and instructions and so on.
There's no need to do so - I'm happy if I can help keep these old machines up and running....
But if you've found the website to be of help to you,
and you'd like to say thanks   -   I can ALWAYS use another Double Espresso !!!
So if you'd like to put a few dollars on my PayPal account that would be great !
I can ALWAYS use another double espresso !!!
Tips to keep the Website Running !

Thanks !!

  PLEASE do NOT repost these manuals   !!!

But feel free to post a LINK to this page

And hey !!
As of June 01, 2017  (years ago...)   there were then over 40,400
total manual or schematic downloads, and very very few folks have even said 'thanks'.
You know I could be selling this information instead of giving it away!
These things take a hell of a lot of my time to scan and then upload!!!
and unlike others, I'm NOT charging anything for you to get these Manuals!!

And then there is caseyjohnellis in Australia or New Zealand who copied the files
below and was selling them on - yep he was selling MY Free files !!!
  caseyjohnellis was ripping folks off
by selling copies of Free files.... not only mine but others.


  If you find a 'Dead' link please email me so I can restore it !!!

 Also you may need to use the Firefox browser if
Internet Explorer does not work on a download.
