Analog Audio-VCR

Filed under: — 2006-03-19 by Richard L. Hess — Last Edit 2006-03-21 by

In the 1980s and 1990s, some people used the Hi-Fi tracks on VHS and BetaMax VCRs to record audio. Playing these on  a well-adjusted VCR will recover the audio.

This was a stopgap measure while affordable digital audio was being developed and sounded far better than audio cassettes recorded on similar-priced machines.

We have both VHS and Beta HiFi machines, as do some of the other restorers listed elsewhere.

To transfer audio+video, please see the video tape section here.
