Damn, that ubiquitous BSR EQ-3000. I've still got one I bought out of one of Drew Kaplan's DAK catalogs.

I heard he got started in business by taking 1" and ½" computer tape and splitting it into ¼" and selling it for audio tape. Could be an urban legend, though.
It should sound like it isn't there!
