    The spectrum could be forced up to about 3kbit I think. However, the
    spectrum had a 1 bit converter which probably was the limit. It should be
    possible to pack data in much more compact. The spectrum was rather
    sensitive to correct tape speed, a modern computer should be able to
    compensate better in software.
