How to Tell[edit]

  • Tapes from this duplicator had a print date (usually in dark red ink), with the printings being formatted like this for example:

79500 BENSUSSEN EP 13 MIN. MAGHSD 14:19

HE'S COMING/DONKEY KONG 09/21/94

  • Some tapes had the printings etched into the tape, like this for example:

702288 JAMBOREE EP-208 DCT 22:27

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD 2-2 07/10/97

  • As demonstrated with the above examples, Magnetech-era tapes used MAGHSD to indicate the duplicator, while tapes duplicated after the name change used DCT instead.
  • A few copies of A Magical Tour of Yoshi's Island and The Invasion of Nintendo from this company have been known to have the record tab intact.
  • Tapes by this duplicator do not have anything in the vertical blanking interval.
  • Some Madacy Music Group tapes duplicated here had the static roll of death at the end.
