There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort.

I'M ALMOST OUT OF QUALITY 1800' TAPES so I'm switching speeds down to 3 1/4", to eat up my supply of 1200' tapes. I'll be adding an extra 15minutes of new material on to each tape as I can get 60 minutes on each tape! The prices are still very reasonable for quad reels!

As for DVD's and digital downloads, they are one step closer as I have successfully generated and tested .aa3 files from my DAW program, playble on VLC this past Easter weekend! Next couple of spare days I will try ruining a handful of disks to see if I can successfully burn one. Boolla Boolla!:banana::banana:

You might want to rethink that. Most reel to reel enthusiasts avoid 3 3/4 ips recordings because the sound quality is mediocre ... poor high frequency response and too much tape hiss. Also ... while most (if not all) machines will play 7 1/2 ips tapes, a lot of them will not play 3 3/4 ips; especially 10 1/2 inch decks like the very popular TEAC 3340S.

So go 30 minutes at 7.5 ips, alrighty then.

my prices seem to have come to an equilibrium around 8.50 to 9.50 per tape, with the occasional 3 for $20 special! I've been working on some new tapes, most recently REZZONATOR Vol 1. (available on eBay)
