FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Available tape speeds.
      Two tape speeds are available:
      * SP= Standard play
      * LP= Long play (= half of SP speed)
      
      Note: 
      In NTSC, there is no LP, but EP (EP= Extended Play = one third of SP
      speed). Exception: in Paolina sets (VRX6X), NTSC LP is possible.
