Can't see any use for VHS tapes excpet in the case of movies that they changed when they brought them to Blu-Ray ie Star wars special editions vs origionals. From a quality aspect there is no compareison between lossless 24bit audio and crummy VHS tape audio. Same with Cassettes they sound awful. I can see a arguement for vynl records although I'm hard pressed to say they sound any better then uncompressed 24bit 192khz flac files off HD Tracks.

Exactly, and you don't have to deal with surface noise and motor rumble.
