Bought:
Izotope RX8 Advanced
An 8 track cartridge player
Sony SL-F1 Betamax recorder
28" computer monitor
Dehydrator for tape baking.
More audio channel cards for the MTR90
Belts and Stylii for the turntables and tape machines.

Sold:
I can't actually think of anything.
I got rid of loads of stuff before the previous house move and have been trying not to accumulate stuff in recent years (apart from stuff that will earn its keep).

I also resurrected a Revox A77 which had been sitting in a box in the studio for many years after I acquired it with a bunch of other stuff. I wish I had done it earlier because it turned out to be a different spec to the label and the heads looked almost new.
