Reference 15-ips Tape List
« on: June 16, 2016, 02:56:21 pm »
Thought everyone would enjoy checking out the reference tape list that I've put together on my bulletin board www.audionirvana.com [nofollow]. I've also assembled a list of all the companies now releasing legitimate tapes in the world--with two more including one big name --to come before the end of the year!

Best of the Best: see post #12 for latest update!

Myles, great list.  I would add a few of Ed Pong's tapes also. (Ultraanaloguerecordings.com).  Just ordered the latest (Set 5) group of tapes from Bob Attiyeh (yarlungrecords.com) which includes his first grand orchestral recording - Gerard Schwarz conducting Mahler's 5th Symphony.

Top tape list revision. A few new tapes added to the list and some new additions to the Bakers Dozen.
