Your absolutely right..
The further apart you spread the tracks, the faster you run the speed and the cost of the heads along with the transport system, the better the sound was. Digital was somewhat suppose to level that field. I see quite a few major acts going back, and some that never left the ďTape EraĒ.
The cassette systems stink, and Iím not sure they were suppose to be anything other then a notebook. Though Iím sure someone has spent time with them and has walked away with good results.
