Hi Randy:

Thanks for the tip. And the info on Norman Corwin.

OTR Cat quality, in my experience, is very low-grade, generally high-loss MP3 or WMA media. I was 
hoping for some better quality, especially if I'm going to pay for it. Does anyone know if OTR Cat 
went back and improved their quality from how it was a few years ago? Sorry, just my pet phobia 
about digi-swishies -- I don't even like them around 70-year-old transcription audio several 
generations removed.
