  1. All of those formats still sound very good. It’s likely the fault of the tape deck not being set up if tapes are getting mangled. A properly set up deck with stable speed and azimuth calibrated (not hard to do, usually there’s a screw to turn, check for best high frequency extension while listening in mono) will extract a ton of information off those cassettes, depending on the original recording quality of course. I still listen to my Walk-person (black WM-EX9) and think it sounds as good or better than an iPhone 6s Plus, which itself is a very good audio player.

  2. Certainly will, however a lot of the tapes I’ve worked with are fine, mostly from the late 80s, early 90s, although they probably haven’t been played that much since then.
