FWIW: I can play
contemplating Reel to Reel
I was actually striving for sonc conformity in the system I am attempting to put together. I guess I never really considered having multiple fornmats that purposley have different sonic signatures. Regardless whether I go with a turntablee or not, I am still going to have a digital player because I enjoy watching classical music concerts on DVD video. Unless the videocassette rises from the dead like reel to reel. Back in the days of the videocassette there were a number of people that did audiophile mods on VCR's. A well recorded videocassette played on a modded VCR actually sounds quite good. Much better than cassette but not as good as reel to reel.
