But you still left with the intrinsic high-frequency hiss originating from Dolby encoding. The best thing to do is to purchase a used Dolby 361 or 363 noise reduction unit to decode them however, they are not cheap. Or and the cheapest fix is to avoid tapes that were Dolby encoded altogether.

BTW, Revox A77 that you can still buy for a reasonable price does come with a Dolby Noise Reduction. My Revox A77 MK III did come with it.
