That's not ideal however given the quality of the source material I have to admit I consider that a clever work around which will likely be perfectly adequate for this given scenario and most importantly it requires no additional purchases. Bravo for your suggestion. [If the VCR has an "edit mode" or switch it should be engaged also be warned if the tapes have a form of "copy guard" (such as Macrovision) the dubs may have issues such as changes in image brightness.]
In A/V reproduction accuracy, there IS no concept of "accounting for personal taste/preference". As art consumers we don't "pick" the level of bass, nor the tint/brightness of a scene's sky, any more than we pick the ending of a novel or Mona Lisa's type of smile. "High fidelity" means "high truthfulness", faithful to the original artist's intent: an unmodified, neutral, accurate copy of the original master, ideally being exact and with no discernable alterations, aka "transparency".
