Anyone else here enjoying a VHS or Betamax VCR? I bought mine recently and started a tape collection and am enjoying it VERY much. I use a Faroudja DVP-5000 to upscale to 1080p and the result has a very special quality.
Hard to describe.

For me video tape has an analog quality (even through the Faroudja and plasma TV) that's so refreshing. Hard to describe.

Yes, playing some VHS the other day, usually music videos, factory made.
Amazing audio quality anyway.
