Re: EAC question

ok...

EAC isn't real accurate for looking at spectrum analyzers spotting MP3... helpful, but not really good enough. Try Adobe Audtion.

the thin line is like just below 16kHz and generally means someone transferred the tape in the analog domain near a CRT (old computer monitor) that generates that noise - with an unsheilded cable or cheap soundcard. Means there is noise - nothing else.

You can't tell a DAT source from a spectrum analyzer display - unless it's 32kHz DAT - then you can only guess. Do not equate DAT with MP3 - DAT is uncompressed while MP3 uses lossy compression.
