    Here is the new Classical Series Reel. Very nice. The back side has a comment on it also. Just listened to the Debussy Nocturnes tape. Even better sonics than the Brahms - a bit more close up in perspective. The Debussy Nocturnes include the Sirenes third movement, which is often omitted in recordings, since it requires a full female chorus in addition to the orchestra. The tape shows the great dynamic range in the piece, from the quiet first movement to the boisterous second and back to the atmospheric third with its wordless choir. The Czechs did some fine recordings in the '60's. Unfortunately, the Supraphon label often had somewhat noisy vinyl. So these tapes show how good the sound can be. I hope they can find some of Ivan Moravec's recordings - he's one of my favorite pianists. We heard him in the Rudofinum Concert Hall in Prague about 20 years ago.

    Sure Larry, the test tones are at the end of the tape for a rough check ... or even a calibration if you want to setup for our tapes ;-) The 1KHz tone is at +0db and the 10KHz one at +10db as per instruction that come with the tape box.

    The 10KHz is at -10db to not saturate and Leif is right ... the tones are on tail for practical reason and because not all the people like on the tape head before the music ;-)

    Thanks, for some reason I didn't see the calibration test tone information. Glad to know about the -10db difference in the 10KhZ test tone! It is much easier to do the adjustments before rewinding the tape. Larry
