You tape the stream from your favourite service, voila, there's your album. And it's guaranteed to sound better than the original stream. :popcorn:

Iíve also not looked into buying prerecorded good source material .. scared of what pricing might be ...
so only using it to record LPís.

But record good sources at 15IPS up and youíll be pleasantly surprised at how good these can get.

Oh then thereís the issue of good quality tape

I love your TASCAM 122/Mk 2.  Beautiful.  My 112 had an excellent service from Hans Lemmerer a couple of years ago.  Not something to let go of, that's for sure.
