Shipping this to North America (and back) would cost a fortune.
Actually, the project is rather expensive. Figure somewhere between
$1.50 to $2.00 US per running minute...and that means including blank
tape as we generally find it's a good idea to scan the whole reel.
Sometimes things show up where you don't expect them.
The complexity of the metadata collection may affect the price.
It would help in costing this to know how long the tapes are (physical +
speed as well as running time), track configuration, whether Dolby or
dbx was used, what tape types.
The DATs are the most problematic. I suspect I have headlife left on my
six machines to do that heap.

The collection consists of 100 reel-to-reel tapes, 470 compact cassettes and 630 DAT cassettes. Is this a job for someone on the list? Would it be worthwhile to send it to US at all, or should we look for someone in Scandinavia / Europe?

Quality tape transfers -- even from hard-to-play tapes.
