Everyone has old tapes. It would be cool to be able to listen to them on the PC. A tape-rom, just like the CD-rom could be made and althought it could be used to easely copy music from the tape to the PC and then to a CD.

Hey, what about a 'touchless' playback deck?

You could keep the tape running taut between the capstans, just a few microns off of the playback head. Adjust the gain a little, and you'd be looking at near digital sound, with zero tape wear and zero buildup on the head.

Any takers?
