Anyone making 15 ips 2-track copies of CDs?

Rumour has it that they can benefit from a little ferric oxide ;o)

I have several favourite CDs of music which is unlikely to be re-released on vinyl and there is something soothing about spinning spools.
Maybe they boost alpha waves in the brain....

Hi Brian,
That is the research I am doing now, I want to record some of my CD's to tape. Question is do I use NAB or IEC for 7.5 ips? I say 7.5 because I don't know if there are going to be any advantages at 15 ips being it is coming from a silent background. If there is some reason to use 15 ips someone please tell me what it is???

Actually Jay "15 ips" was a play on that earlier thread regarding recording LPs to tape. In practice I too will be having the transfers done at 7 1/2 since most CDs will nicely fill a single 10 1/2" reel at that speed. These transfers will be using IEC.

Brian,
What is your reason for using IEC over NAB?

I'm in the UK so pretty much all available machines record to the IEC curve.

I make tape copies of 32/352.8kHz digital on a Studer rig since no one can play the digital source files natively.

Sounds pretty damn good to me...
