RE: How often do you see someone admit to that in an audiphile forum?

They may have added PCM very late in the game. Maybe in the vertical interval? I have a vague recollection of something along those lines. I think it would have been low bit depth logarithmic, limited to 15 kHz, that sort of thing, there's a serious bandwidth limit there and I'm guessing they didn't yet have economical DCT/Huffman encoding (as in MP-3).

You've jogged my memory, I had the same problem with VHS hi fi. Back in the day, I was thinking "Wow, I can record six hours of high quality audio for the cost of one VHS tape!" And then it turned out to be such a pain to get to anything that I abandoned the idea. Besides, I could use audio cassettes in my Walkman (not that I made many -- mostly tapes to travel with, or copies of stuff I only had on open reel, since at that point I no longer had open reel at home).
