Reading his comments I get the strong feeling he will say whatever gets him the
most money. I've worked with 30ips machines. They are a total nightmare, and
while a wide tape width improves noise, it actually detracts from frequency
response (it would take an entire article to explain why).

People usually use tape these days to add 2nd order harmonic distortion (warmth)
and saturation distortion (compression). If you really want that, both can be
had more reliably by alternative means.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
