You can't get good s/n at that track width -- without the hideous compromise of noise reduction. Plus, your high and low end will undoubtedly be severely compromised by a number of factors, as well.

While all of that is absolutely true, none of it stopped me from making a lot of great sounding Cd's some of which where quite successful (and with the worse DBX no less).

Years later and I now have a 2" 24track with A and SR if I want it. I still listen back to the stuff I made on the original MSR24 and It still sounds great.

I would say if you already own it, use it till it dies or tape does.
