    Hey everyone.....I'm a new guy here. Just introducing myself. Just got a Vintage 1960's SABA Hifi 600-SH Unused in Original SABA Box. Attached is a photo of an example of one. It's a Reel To Reel system from W. Germany. Missing Power Cord though! Such a shame! I will have a bunch of questions that I hope to get some help for. I will do that in the appropriate forums though. I'm a "picker" and will have items to sell or help refurbishing before I sell them. If I can every help anyone I would be happy to. My knowledge is limited but I'm one of those guys that know a little about A LOT of things. I don't plan on using this website as my personal garage sale though. I know its not the purpose of the site. Thanks for taking me in "off the street"!!

    Welcome from the west side (of the State that is)
    Never heard of Saba. It looks like a nice piece.

    Hi. I only heard of SABA recently myself. Was hoping everyone here knew SABA because I only found this website from a Google search in which one of thr results titled this website with Saba and other Vintage German Brands as "specialty" of this site. It is indeed a gorgeous piece of equipment but without a power cord I cant even power it on. Its literally new in original BUT OPENED box. Someone pilfered that cord. Gotta try to find a American Electrical power cord. All i have is the German 220v.

    SABA (Schwarzwälder Apparate Bau Anstalt) built the best stereo tube radio ever. (SABA "Continental 410" - in Germany: "Freiburg"). One should be familiar with this brand!

    Hello Chris!

    Welcome from the Black Forest, the location of the former SABA factory! I have a lot of SABA gear but I am not familiar with the 600SH. In Germany it is a rare collector's item. I will try check the value of this one.

    See you!

    Chris

    The SABA 600SH was the rival of the Swiss ReVox A-77. It was one of the best tape machines in Germany back then. It's value in Germany is now about 500-700 Euros in good conditon. But crazy collectors would pay for yours (NOS?) up to 1000 Euros. Retail price was 2000 Deutsche Mark - that was a bunch of money in the sixties!

    Congratulations! Enjoy your SABA and enjoy your stay in our community! :)
