Is this a studer killer,  I think not.

Could be a very nice machine if you wanted a good mono setup. Very high quality Australian made machine from back when
we could tie our own shoelaces.  :P

Ampex,  now this is a rare machine, ex military. I what the amp inside, look at the transformers and oil chokes, buy price is too high.

Please be aware, even though this machine appears to be a stereo machine, this could well be an instrumentation recorder not suited for use with audio signals.
Come to think of it what would the military want with a high quality audio recorder suited to music? A quick look shows there is bugger all info on the web on this
machine so I would be very careful thinking this could be a good machine for music reproduction.

From the net it seems that Gamve is right and it is an instrumentation recorder made for the US navy around 1950. Multiple channels with maybe 1 audio channel.

Here is a link to a history of Ampex that refers to it. http://ammpt.asn.au/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/The-Early-Days-of-Ampex-Corporation.pdf

Yep nice tube tape stage from an Ampex 300 350 series R2R. Yes you will need a pair and matching impedance heads for it to be
any good to you. These usually go for good money as the also make good microphone pre amps.
