From Moldova, right? Not great, but not bad sounding at all. Source could have been an LP, CD, or something more exotic, but the Ebay ad didn't really claim anything other than it was THAT performance on 15 ips 2-track (sometimes 7 1/2 ips 2-track). Sellers like this often claim that they're just selling the tape stock, presumably for re-recording, and the performance on the tape is a "bonus."
Now the Bulgarians are churning out two track tapes. If the rule of supply and demand holds fast we should see lower prices. ;-)
But how is that the tapes are NAB on those European tape decks?
The huge difference between tape and vinyl is that there is a HUGE amount of vinyl in circulation, and a large amount being made.
Tape - well, neither is true. Ir is so niche, if the market gets tired of it a bunch of high enders are going to lose their arses on those machines whose prices inflated suddenly.
