Well, I guess I get to say "never mind".  It appears that the Archive 
2150S I've got actually does read DC600 and DC300 tapes. :)

I'm suprised that this thing has a rubber roller that's still in good 
condition, and that the thing still reads tapes.

Now, I'll see what I can do about making some of these tapes available.
