Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

RE: dolby 363 with Cat 300 (Dolby SR).

IMHO the question is "what do you want to achive?"
All these Dolby systems were designed to reduce tape hiss. And lowering the noise floor can increase usable dynamic range a bit.
There are limits to each system. If you go beyond these limits, audible distortions become a problem.
This is only one solution to the noise floor issue.
The most popular one in studios was to use a wider tape run at a higher speed.
That's why only bedroom studios ever used cassette as a recording media.
Of course, there's absolutely no reason why you shouldn't try using it today.
I wouldn't expect much better performance than Dolby Labs got with Dolby C.
Go for if you have the spare cash!
