ON THE BATTERY BOX, This Recorder is fitted with a Nagra 50/60Hz Crystal Pilot Generator, it is a full pilot sync recorder, so if you need to run the Nagra in sync with a camera you can, but if you don't need it just unplug the pilot link plug in the right hand side of the nagra

The recorder works from 12 x U2 batteries or external ATN mains supply (not included) see accesses 2 for power supplies

Nagra is the best reel-to-reel tape recorder ever made with the best of Swiss engineering that you are never likely to see again.
One of the joys of owning a Nagra is that it is an all in one over the shoulder recorder and when you switch it on you know it's going to work and give you a professional quality recording in any conditions.
