Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

RE: Time for a science project

This evening, I installed Monoprice RCA to XLR cables between my tape deck and the equalizer, and between the equalizer and the system front end (Denon) and amplifier (McIntosh 240). For an audition: Barclay Crocker Rachmaninoff. I used the equalizer to adjust high end Dolby B compensation. The equalizer allows for settings of up to 6 or 12 db cut or boost per frequency channel. I like the solid feel foo the XLR cables (though I know this is still unbalanced). As for the sound - enormous soundstage; in fact, even an SACD sounds a bit thin in comparison.
