Tape Recording Speed; Quality

    Hi:

    I hope I asking my questions the correct newsgroup.

    Is it true that a cassette recorded at a faster speed will have a
    wider frequency response, richer S/N ratio, and an overall better
    quality than a cassette recorded at a slower speed?


    I would appreciate any assistance.

    Please reply by email.



    Thanks in advance,


    Radium

    Yes.

    Why?
     
  4. The basic answer is YES. But, there are many complex factors
    involved. These deal with the tape characteristics that highly effect
    the design of the equalization, bias current, bias frequency, and many
    other complex factors.

    But, in general, the higher the velocity of the tape speed, the easier
    it is to have a better signal to noise, lower distortion, greater
    stabelization and better frequency response.

    Now with digital recording, things are a bit different, but the speed
    of the tape along with other complex factors, will effect the data
    accuracy.
