Another long shot, I know.... Does anyone else remember the topic on the forum pre data loss on component changes to increase record headroom? I can't remember the forum member or details, but would be interested in revisiting this if someone does.

I recall the discussion, but not the specifics.  There was a lot of "back and forth".

I remember something about it. The person posting stated he was able to get more signal on tape by reducing a series resistor feeding the record head. I do not know what tape he was using, or the reference flux.

As the JH110B/C has good record power to feed hotter +9dB tapes such as Ampex 499, I am not sure this modification is necessary.
