RE: Here's an idea...

"If you have the itch to upgrade your system again think about getting a nice reel to reel tape deck. RTRs are making a comeback and recording your LPs to a nice 15 ips deck would be a way to make your analog music convenient.

I have been considering another RTR and its been a lot of years since my last one. It would be a sweet addition to make your system a lot of fun to play with."

You suggest that he should get a reel-to-reel. Yet, you have not done it.

I'd also disagree that RTR's are "making a comeback", other than within a very tiny audiophile demographic. First of all, blank tape is not readily available conveniently at a reasonable price. Secondly, pre-recorded tapes are extremely limited and very expensive. Thirdly, putting a record on a turntable is easier than loading/threading/rewinding a tape. Prove me wrong.
