This site has been developed in order for me to sell off some machines to reduce my collection and hopefully to benefit other beta enthusiasts repairing their machines.


To OBTAIN THE BEST TRANSFER OF your memories from beta tape format to DVD you MUST use a beta machine that is in THE BEST OPERATING CONDITION possible


At Restored Beta Machines there are three tables of the machines that may be available according to the manufacturer names SONY, SANYO and TOSHIBA.  The tables list the models of beta machines, their main features and the price, based on a unit in excellent working order. All machines and repairs are guaranteed for three months. Since the audio can be recorded in one or more of three ways see "What machine do you need?"


Antique Video Cassette Recorders?

  Yes, Beta VCRs are an old technology and they did lose the sales war to VHS, but they work better than VHS, if only by a small margin. PALSITE.COM, a UK website, has an excellent overview of the various models of PAL beta machines available overall at http://www.palsite.com/models.html . The European models and variants of the UK models were nearly all available in Australia.
