Which one, when they divided into tracks like a cassette the outside channel is often shredded because it was too close to the edge of the tape. Then there's VHS Hi-Fi.

There was something about it that just never sounded natural.
Well, the arm's not the greatest, so anything you can do to it helps. There are those that with jump up and down defending the stock arm, but they're quite obviously deaf.

And a good platter mat is also a must. I've got a Herbie's 5mm mat on my M3D.

VHS Hi-fi was not bad at all. Back when I was starting digital recording on U-Matic tape from a Sony PCM rack unit, I did a gig with a guy from Radio France who did his recording onto VHS Hi-Fi. They were very bit as good as mine, if not better.

I started to use VHS-Hi-Fi whenever I could.

It's amazing how few people remember this stuff.

Across the VHS tape on an angle is how I remember it. I remember seeing multitrack recorders using VHS tape. I mainly remember the audio being more than good.
I still have a stereo vcr in the attic in a box.
Just waiting.

Ahh Ok. Thanks. Only Kenwood I have read about is L-07D and one model with unique glass marble plinth. Both nice.

Quite frankly, I preferred the Dual701 to the KD500 with whatever zoomie audio-tweaker tone-arm(s) I played with at the time - the old chasing the brass-ring, latest Absolute Sound, etc recommendations got to be a very costly and dizzying carousel ride.
While I've not played my current vinyl rig (RegaPlanar3/RB200/AudioNote IQ2) at home for more than one side in at least 5yrs, I'd have to say that in terms of ease of set-up, use and performance, the 701 with Decca London Gold was probably my overall favorite - but not so much fun on warped discs.
Did you also own a not-so-cheap Dual idler? A well serviced 1219 or 1229 really is a great player. Even their smaller brothers 1218 and 1228 do sound great if in good condition. A thorough maintenance of a 1219 or 1229 may take quite some hours, though...

A VHS HiFi deck doesn't write the audio linearly to the tape's edges with low speed, but uses AF heads instead that are placed to the same rotating drum as the video heads. This leads to an oblique high-speed writing to the tape with the option of low noise and wide band performance.

Best regards!
