Your feature on the mag coating truck (wouldn't fit in my parking place) caused me to remember a small item of trivia that you may already know:
Some years ago I was part of a professional sound evening at Technicolor near Heathrow.
Amongst the very many fascinating things we were shown I was intrigued to learn that the 70mm 6 track print recorder couldn't achieve a flat transfer because of the very small width of the stripes so third octave graphic equalisers were used to manipulate the feed signal in an attempt to produce a matching recording.
We can therefore be certain that when new prints are provided with a DTS sync Rom the results are closer to the original than was ever possible with the original mag stripe prints.
