Thumbs up Re: Cassette transfer in 24 bit? Is it needed or worth it?

I would say it is definitely worth doing 24 bit, but only if you properly calibrate the tapedeck (azimuth re-alignment to the tape you're playing)...
I've made some tape to tape dubs back 'in the day' that actually turned out as good as the original. Of course I've been re-aligning tape heads for 30 years now. So if they were properly done, 1gens can sound nice and be worthy of higher bitrates / sample rates.
