Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

I bought a nice near top of the range SONY three head dolby B/C/S tape deck to play with for about twenty quid off eBay, and did a few recording tests, using my phone as a signal generator.

I was quite disappointed with the flutter, although recording CDs and old LPs sounded fine, it had really good level metering and auto-bias etc.

I then played a really old pre recorded cassette of Tubular bells which I bought 2nd hand as a student in 1985, it practically lost all it's ferrous oxide over the tape heads, and the deck needed a few goes with acetone and baby buds before I could use it again!
