RE: [AV Media Matters] How lossy?


On August 25, you made the following statement:

<<You can make a first generation copy of reel to reel and actually enhance
certain properties of the recording by using optimum bias and record levels.

All reel-reel recorders I have used REQUIRE optimising bias and record
for the particular type of tape you are using.  I would not consider that as
an "enhancement" since it should be normal practice.

Also, the erased condition of the tape should not make any difference since
the erase head on the machine is much wider than the recorded track and the
field is larger than a bulk degausser.  If this is not true, than the
is badly mis-aligned and should not be used.
