RE: Small amount of hiss doesn't bother me

[[ taking the signals off the tape heads]]

Interesting idea, especially if the deck's preamps start to give me trouble (pioneer tape deck preamps have a common problem with corroded transistors).

I have good soldering skills. Would not be difficult I think to tap into the direct head output but noise could be a problem routing to external tape head amp.

My playback system is already all tube - Transcendent Sound Grounded Grid preamp and Transcendent T8-LN OTL amp.

. I judge any sound system by how tiring it is to listen to.
