Some 2-track stereo open reel tapes are in demand (speaking of which, would 
anybody be demanding one I just found by Eartha Kitt?).

I have a few thousand DAT tapes and have experienced remarkably little failure. 
3 machines still in working order. 2 good reel to reel machines that can handle 
full, half or quarter track, 3.75 to 15ips..if anything slower ever requires my 
attention, I'll have to see if the old Philips fires up.
