Thank you very much for sharing that link. I've been a long time fan of Nagra as well as a collector. That was some delicious eye candy and enjoyable reading. Even got me lusting over Nagra stuff again.

My current Nagra collection:
3) Nagra III
1) Nagra IV-D
1) Nagra IV-L
1) Nagra IV-BL
2) Nagra IV-S (1 w/7" cover)
2) Nagra IV-SJ
1) Nagra 4.2
1) Nagra TRVR logger w/RCHS time code reader/searcher

Is it me, but I thought the 300B amplifier was overly complex..

Only knew Nagra as the only recorder used on movie sets, and for a reason, they know how to build em. This is a bit of an eye opener, thanks.

300B amplifier?

A friend just got one of the pre-amps (used and still cost more than my entire hifi). It is really nice.

This show is fascinating.
I would say only so much about the reliability that I heard it once from a filmmaker-staff, that the packets forgot to be fixed at the time of a departure on top of the bus. A Nagra tape-recorder was between them. Sure falls from the roof of the bus. It was picked up from the ground, it was dusted off. No damage happened in it.

The 12AX7s in that picture look different than any I have seen.
They are labeled "Billington Gold ECC83" which I think is a re-mark.

Any idea who the original manufacturer is ?

Yes, they are coming out with a 300B based PP monoblock rather prominently featured on the six moons site..
