JBL 4312a’s a CJ SS amp and you are golden! 
Why do YOU love Vinyl/or hate vinyl
I love the warmth, spatial quality and ‘syrupy contours’ that come with vinyl. I also love the quiet, clean, predictable, ease-of-playback that digital provides.Wanting the best of both worlds I decided to give reel-to-reel tape a try. Wow!Sibilan... 
High value, giant killer speakers?
...all these amazing and rather consistent suggestions are making me want to rethink my solution to this problem.Has anyone tries a pair of properly powered Infinity Kappa 7’s or 8’s? How do they compare to the many suggestions here? 
High value, giant killer speakers?
@douglas_schroederAbsolutely every other poster here has been supportive and encouraging. Does it feel good to poop in the punch bowl? Funny that you are the first to mention ‘ego’. I wonder why that is? 
Spectron Audio Out Of Business?
@georgehifi their site has been up for several years. No one there answers emails or phone calls and this has been verified by several people here.do you know someone there George? 
High value, giant killer speakers?
Infinity Kappa 7’s and 8’s if you drive them properly. They can be had from $500 to $2,000. Can easily play with $3,000 to $5,000 speakers. Don’t believe those that say there are no giant killers, there are plenty. 
What Class D amps will drive a 2 ohm load
A Carver Signature Sunfire 600 should do the trick.  That amp is so powerful it’ll get good sound from a cinder block. If you get one Bill Flannery has up-kept there will be no heterodyning.

Can we finally put Reel to Reel out of its misery? Put it to rest people.
I recommend The Ghost Dog soundtrack, and Public Enemy’s Fear of a Black Planet as good starting points.Maybe De La Souls Six Feat High and Rising. A contemporary Hiphop/Rap artist I think will be a good test for all your systems is anything by Od...

@vinny55 Like with all things, I try to keep to a lower budget. I have a TEAC 2300s. It’s seems like a solid player. I had it setup and calibrated by a pro here in the Greater Los Angeles area. It handles 7 inch stereo 4-track reels at 3 3/4 and 7...

@chakster Some of the best tapes come from the 1950s and 60s.  Classical, Jazz, Motown, R&B, Big Band, Vocal, there is so much selection available... The cherry on top is all the Pop and Rock from the late 60s and the 1970s!Plus a well cared f... 
Hardware/Software To Manage Multi-format, File-Based Audio Playback
I think Jriver make the most sense. Not too expensive and seems to offer a lot of options. 
Hardware/Software To Manage Multi-format, File-Based Audio Playback
I was hoping one of the software options can recognize and mitigate pre-emphasis and ringing in older CD’s and will also allow for custom EQ’s, loudness matching, etc... 
Hardware/Software To Manage Multi-format, File-Based Audio Playback
These are all great suggestions! Thank you all. I have an Mac mini from around 2006 that I’d like to use to run whichever software I go with.I am curious, of the software you have suggested, which has the most tools for editing and enhancing files...
