Hey beat hedz,

maybe there's someone out there with this info for me?

I've got a decent 3 head casette deck to do recordings and I wanted to know at
what decibels should my recordings be played back at for optimum sound/noise
with a type IV tape.

Up until now I've been recording CDs to tape with the peaks around +5 dB and
averaging around +1 to +3dB. Does this make sense or can I go higher or should
I be lower?
