"......... with file sizes 30 times larger than 16/44, would never be offered as download or stream."
Well, they are available for download.
Also, reel-to-reel tape and machines was available long before the 1970s.
I just thought reel-to-reel was promoted more in the early 70s, as perfectionist-audio was growing (fast). But another (slight) edit.
Actually, my first impressive exposure to stereo was on reel-to-reel tape in the 1950s.
I wasn't born until the early 70s. I just thought tape was esoteric and rare until the hi-fi boom of the early 70s. I'm sorry it never took off - J. Gordon Holt's reference !
....seems to me you have no clue what you are talking about.
DAT better sound than vinyl? Try again.
LP was never a great source. Digital-tape was a clear improvement over analog cassette of the 70s. Esp. with Japanese-made tape decks.
Only my opinion, of course....
