RE: Back in the day, I owned a commercial RTR of The Mystic Moods Orchestra's "Stormy Weekend."

I am very strict about not arguing preferences. what people like is inarguable. Heck, I prefer vinyl.


But.... I think a lot of audiophiles don't really know the objective realities about many things in audio including reel to reel tape.

No doubt 4X speed is much more accurate to the source signal that 16X speed. But either way they are at best, AT BEST, 3rd generation analog tape high speed dupes. In the objective real world they are not even remotely as accurate as a hi res rip from an original master tape.

Prefernces are subjective and inarguable. Accuracy is objective and not a matter of opinion.
