mmm yeah but theyre mainly for downloading films is what i thought anyway.
my mate runs his reggae mp3s first to this enormous reel to reel tape machine before he listens to them, and whilst the sound is just amazing i do find it rather peculiar.
i use tape for its effect on the sound, tape saturation, tape compression and just general tapey ness. i use a normal tape deck though, and youd be surprised how well normal tape holds up to the reel to reel version. i always had this idea id get a vhs and ssee what taht might sound like. tape is great.
