Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

RE: Not Necessarily

Now you've got me totally confused:

"Actually what I compared was that cassette played on my Nakamichi BX-1 and a CD played on a Samsung BlueRay player through my stereo system."

So, where does the iPod fit into the picture? And, what was the source you used to make the cassette recording (vinyl LP, CD, etc.)?

This is part of what I meant when I said there are many variables in the record/playback chain. Even more-so when we re-record different sources and transfer to different devices! It's too easy to make meaningless comparisons and draw unfounded conclusions. It's harder to make useful comparisons and draw valid conclusions.

Apparently, I mistakenly picked up on and assumed you were playing an mp3 as a result of reading Kootenay's post, and thought you had created an mp3 for your iPod from your original CD, and thought you were playing your iPod through your stereo. Shame on me and Kootenay! So, then, I looked up the ".we" file type, and found nothing on neither the Windows nor Apple websites, although, I did find some references on "3rd party" sites which I've never heard of, and which I don't "click on" for safety reasons.

In any case, I'm not being argumentative - you're making an effort to compare. That's good. I'm just trying to help you understand that you have many more variables here than would allow you to draw your conclusion, and the importance of accurately describing the test/comparison conditions and source material.
