Has anyone been banned from Steve Hoffman Forums?
For: calling out that insecure bully/prick/troll Lukas "Lukpac" Pacholski and his constant brigading and sea-lioning into Beatles related topics trying to ALWAYS HAVE THE LAST WORD whenever someone else TRIES to make a previously unmentioned, nuan... 
Simon and Garfunkel "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" MOFI UD1S
The "closest" thing which would've been near the master source when *new* (and: NOT duplicated from any dubious RIAA-eq'd "cutting master" down the line) would've been: the 3 3/4ips reel to reel tape of Columbia catalog number "HC1212".Since it's ... 
Top 5 recievers of the 70's and 80's ????
Tandberg 2060; Tandberg 2045; McIntosh 1900; Harman/Kardon 150+ quad; Marantz 2230.Even with the wide-variety of wattage ratings, these models (to me: based-upon once having used them second hand) all had the ability to serviceably run old New Eng... 
New Beatles American Hey Jude cd
Here is a 16/44 WAV sample of the ORIGINAL 1970 Apple comp I uploaded to a soundcloud from an analog tape:side 1https://mega.nz/file/QOhgGRhK#pde57OisGmWt71RsacpE0cYKnnzWVxXupiSDoIMEYg0side2https://mega.nz/file/9ThFBQiZ#eYD466LBOKcBi7mPos5kxs0MQ1m... 
Does vinyl have a sound?
Vinyl most certainly does have "a sound":  which may win...when it comes to comparing it to an entirely different domain in the realm of digital (consisting, now, predominantly of endlessly reissued material with 40-60 years' age on the master sou... 
Mono vs. Stereo
Kind of defeats the purpose of having an exotic system(?)....if you want the soundstage to mimic the effect of listening to a 1960s AM radio station.  Don't 'ya think? ;(I, personally, never minded the spatiality of wide stereo; because I hear it ... 
LP playback vs Reel tapes made from LP
As was noted: the only tangible "difference" will be the ability of playing back a tape copy of the recorded material AT A LOUDER LEVEL WITHOUT RISKING ANY ACOUSTICAL FEEDBACK or worrying about (otherwise) walking on proverbial eggshells each time... 
Led Zeppelin II
An "under-the-radar", original ANALOG copy alternative to the Ludwig first pressing WHICH BEST preserves the same impact of it was: a reel to reel tape issued of II (all the Zep albums; from 1 through "Houses of the Holy" had come out on such what... 
Victory at Sea - original LPs Vs Remastered LP or CD
As the owner of Vols. 1 and 3 of, actually, the Living Stereo REEL TO REEL copies of the Robert Russell Bennett conducted re-recordings RCA issued between 1959-1961: they are in genuine stereo (if these are the same sources you're speaking of and ... 
Reel to reel signal to noise ratios appear low??
A lot of it, too, had to do with what the state-of-the-art of electro/mechanical (internal) component quality was limited by in its production tolerances 40-50 years' ago as well.I mean: a well-known example (in vintage rebuild circles) involves a... 
Grading Guidelines for Reel-to-Reel Tape
First category of most desirable pre-recorded reels:'70s-era, 7 1/2IPS Rock near the end of the format's consumer popularity: ESPECIALLY THE TITLES "MAGTEC/STEREOTAPE" DUPLICATED FOR WARNER BROS./REPRISE/ATLANTIC AS WELL AS FOR RCA (ex: Led Zeppel...

Live at Leeds
Sample of side 2 (the more exciting half, LOL!) from a 16/44 WAV cloudfile I made from my 1970 Decca, 7 1/2ips reel to reel copy ("ST7-9175"). 
What makes tape sound better than vinyl ?
I don't understand why someone with a Studer (A820?) would even waste time owning cassette?  I mean: cassette was shoe-horned into being passable "HiFi" only after Henry Kloss' exploits with Advent in the early '70s; before then: it was an office ... 
Reel-to-Reel Player--Best Playback Deck 4-trk Stereo-Dependable, Easy Repair, Sounds Great
1. Magnecord 1024: USA built; three (oversized) motors; separate power supplies for transport and preamp; all discrete (transistorized) circuitry (NO early-gen noisy ICs or opamps mid-70s-onward Japan decks were crammed with to economize on board ...
