That won't work either now that hd has had its redundancy removed by

I was reading something on the web the other day about audio recording,

While some of us appreciate quality, we are in a minority.

Audio cassettes in my Denon sounded superb, almost indistinguishable

pre-recorded tapes were reasonable with use of the 'Play Trim' knob.
