  • It's like vinyl, it's all coming back. Good subject, by the way.:):thumbup:


    For the kiddies now, playing music is just a click off the button. Clinical and boring, but remember how long it took to make that tape of your favourite tracks? I used too love doing that with my mum and didn't find it a hassle at all, quite the opposite. Would I go back to tapes, no way in hell!^^

    I remember the efforts we went to to get a "clean" recording without the DJ idiot blabbing over the start or finish. What we didn't know at the time was that the copyright holders insisted that they did that so we couldn't get a clean recording.:cursing:

  • I don't recall ever having that problem, so I must have been listening to a classier radio station.:P

  • I never had any cassette problems but the secret was keeping the pinch-wheel clean and the heads de-magnetised. I recently refurbished my Akai Hi-Fi cassette deck, posted elsewhere here, this has Dolby so the sound is pretty good. Not as good as my Akai reel-to-reel with Dolby at 7 1/2 inches a second.
