Re: Bias is a recording issue..not a playback issue....

For cassette tapes, if the recordings are based on 70uS equalization you should set the equalization on your deck to 70uS instead of 120uS during playback. This has been clearly indicated on the J-inserts that come with the cassette tapes that are recorded using 70uS.

For example, in a PRO-ARTE pre-recorded cassette tape, on the J-Insert it states:

" Duplicated on Chromium Dioxide Tape, Requires 70uS Eq. "


For Reel to Reel I do not know though.
