If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Chad Kassem has given you the highest compliment. At the RMAF show panel (where Romo participated and got a big hand of applause for the TP), Chad said that he basically copied the TP when he was setting up his new Ultra Tape Series. Having received his first two tape releases, I can say that the packaging, the two reel albums, much of the copying chain using the Ampex ATR-100 series machines, and even the pricing follows the lead of the TP. I can only see Chad's entry providing a major new source of tapes, and a larger base of tape owners who then will be potential new customers for TP. I know over the past two weeks, I sold both my BH modified Technics and my Otari MX5050BIII-2 to two audiophiles who have been thinking about getting into tapes. So there are two potential new customers(a dentist and a retired surgeon) for the TP. Don't worry - I now own two ATR-102's and my wife said for every new one, an old one had to go!
