Default How do I confirm the playback eq on the tapedeck (reel) meets the standard ?

Here's chart showing the 'measured' playback eq for three speeds on a reel to reel recorder (a sony tc-560). While they 'look' ok, how do I make sure the eq does not need tweaking. Is there a reference (nab ? riaa ?) that I could compare with ? Where can I get it ?

er..please excuse the 60hz spike. my not-so-scientific-laboratory-grade test setup/cables were picking up hum.

Default playback eq on the tapedeck

The only proper way is to use a calibrated reference test tape (Bezugsband), but these are difficult to obtain and expensive ($105), unless you could borrow one.
