Well, those are ******** opinions. You can't bake those tapes. All of the plastic will warp and or melt at 130 to 140 degrees. Ever leave one in the car by accident? You bake that thin, flimsy stuff and you are throwing it away for sure.

ADAT uses S-HVS tape and transports. The problems you have with those tapes playing now are no different than the problems we had when all of that crap was new. It was never meant for high-duty cycle use and the heads rubbed the thinner, less robust tapes raw. That was the downside to the format.
