Please don't tail-gate an old joke that has been inactive for several years*.
The answers are:
I don't believe you have given us sufficient information about the quality of the recording equipment to yet narrow it further.
Also, please post your JCL and messages. Use the code tags, please.
For some background information, google for "The Sound of One Hand Clapping" & "Bart Simpson".
The best way I've found to listen to recorded silence is with the volume way down, or the playback device disconnected from any supply of power. Or on leaving the print room, after an hour, when three 3800s, three 1403s and a couple of little ones are all running full-tilt.

If you watch Godzilla backwards its about a giant lizard who's only passion in life is to rebuild a destroyed city. Content with his work, he then moonwalks into the ocean. The movie ends peacefully with an old guy fishing on a pier.
You must mean the re-make. In the original I believe the film would have ended with an A-Bomb shrinking Godzilla to 1,000,000th of his original size, revealing to a discerning audience the moral that no matter how great are your good deads, someone with an A-Bomb can still really screw you up.
