No. It was never a high quality analog medium when it came to prerecorded material. It could be pretty darn good when done at home. It will return about the same time 8-track does. :-)-Wendell

VPI Enthusiasts: Going Backwards?
Over the years I've owned 2 HW19 Jrs., a Mark III and a Mark IV. I've also owned the original Aries and a TNT HR6 with the Wheaton Triplanar arm. The Mark IV was mated with a Graham 1.5t. Of all those setups, I've enjoyed none more than the Classi...
