Dear CEC friends:

How do you feel about restoring old, classic reel-to-reel
tape pieces, which were made pre-Dolby or DBX?

That is, should one use digital noise reduction techniques
to mitigate tape hiss, for instance? Or should one leave
such hiss and other tape noise artifacts of the late '40's to
early '60's as part of the idiomatic nature of tape music of
that period.?

Comments? Views?
