Hi!
I would be happy to hear some opinions regarding whether this is lossy or lossless. See attached pics. This is a Black Sabbath show from 1976. It's Pre-FM or SBD, the info file claimed it is sourced from Pre-FM reels > CDR. What do you think? Any opinions are welcome.
Thanks and best,
Linda

Looks lossless to me, 15k freq cut is caused by the analog equipment itself.

Many thanks for your replies! Any more opinions? I'd love to collect at least 3 comments before I change my notes on this recording to 'lossless'. ;-)

:thumbsup. For a 1976 capture this looks the goods.

Thanks! :-) That's really good news, so I can finally mark this 'lossless' without being unsure about it.
