Loosing bits shoulld not render a problem. The original audio recorders
were pretty low fidelity so loosing a few waveform buts are trivial.
Keeping mind that cassette port data is binary bits represented as audio
tones. That data had to withstand all the assaults a casette and the
associated 20-50 dollar lo-fi recorder and player delivered.
Lossy MP3 is very hi-fi compared to that.
