    Thanks for your reply , it is interesting, shows the difference between amateur and pro equipment

    Maybe 10-14dB peaks with professional recording but A77 never had that headroom anyway even using a low 185 nWb/m as 0 db reference level.
    Studers etc maybe able to cope with 10-14 dB peaks above reference level as their electronics are probably built for that. I don't know if the tape could take it as I know nothing about proffesional recording.
