    And hey Cassette can still sound really very good in its own right
    I only have 2 decks now but my Tascam 122 mk2 sounds excellent

    What's the attraction?

    I got rid of my last Compact Audio Cassette deck about thirty years ago and would not want another. My (now old) MiniDisc deck turns in a far better sound. Not that I ever seem to record anything these days.

    Geoff , I think cassettes are going down the retro / cool route for consumers, Also small bands can have small production runs of say 100 units made at and afordable price unlike LP production , Just my opinion

    I only owned 1 mini disc player a sony model but I never liked the sound quality it just sounded bland to me, it was meant to replace my cassette deck, a Nad at the time but I quickly realised that it was actually inferior to a well recorded tape
