Scope the signal and verify it's a click,or just the signal disappearing momentarily and reappearing.I went round and round with a Tascam MS-16 until I found out that it was there no matter what-especially if you recorded a 30-40HZ signal.

Generally,tape machines setup for 456,recording using 499/GP9/996 will sound like the high end is exaggerated due to the machine being under biased for the tape.Running 456 on a machine biased for 499/996/GP9 will tend to sound muffled due to the tape being overbiased.
