    I find that hiss is usually so low in volume that it's unobtrusive. That little bed of his tells me that the music is on tape, or that there are loud digital components in the recording chain.

    If it does have hiss it's because it is from a ?th generation transfer but the original was not from tape.

    Look at the size of the telephone in the first one. I found 1/2 of an early computer, the name escapes me but real common, that I couldn't pick up alone. It was only about 2 to 3 feet square.

    That could be, yes. Like a tape dub of a Benny Goodman record.
