We were sad to hear that ATR Services and Magnetic’s owner Mike Spitz passed on October 12th. He was respected worldwide as the premier expert on Analog tape and tape machines. When 3M, BASF/EMTEC, and Quantegy left the marketplace, Mike and ATR Magnetics picked up the torch for tape and tape machines. His knowledge and expertise with tape machine electronics and mechanics was invaluable and he will be missed. R.I.P. Mike Spitz.
