Absolutely correct.  In the early days of audio cassettes, manufacturers
bragged about 20-20kHz frequency response, but usually "forgot" to mention
the fact that the noise spec (S+N/N) was much much worse.  Eighth inch tape
at 1 7/8 ips just aint gonna sound like quarter inch tape at 3 3/4  or 7
1/2 ips!!!  No way, no how.

Figures don't lie etc.

at an infinite number of road signs
would eventually produce all of Shakespeare's plays
