Question Does anybody still play music cassettes?

I was just wondering, since I own quite a few Nakamichi cassette decks. One of them has Gold on the front! Anybody guess what model? Sam

Smile Cassettes Do you like them?

Does any one still like Cassettes?
I have a 3 head JVC cassette deck from 1983 and it sounds amazing when type 2 tapes are used.
It's a shame that most people don't like them

I have a musician's sense of pitch and I have always hated cassettes. Wow and flutter is quite audible, IMHO. I've never owned a high end cassette deck but my $60 1985 RCA CD player always performed quite well to my ear: and it still does. My mother's $140 Panasonic cassette player never even came close on pitch stability. I inherited her cassette player and cassette collection, but never play anything but the FM radio function.

The reason probably - you have not heard Nak Dragon or ZX 9 in good condition-
People pay $$$$ for a good serviced Nak
I own 1000ZXL limited +1000ZXL + Dragon+ CR 7A and few other Naks

wow only $60 for a CD player in 1985. I didn't know CD players were around then.
I guess Cassette players are only really good if they are very high end....

would any one like to here a song from my cassette deck to see if it really is good???

You can send that to me and I will environmentally dispose of it free of charge

Might as well send rest as well and as one off I will extend the free charge to the lot

Yes absolutley. Especialy when one has loads of tapes taken at the desk direct from live concert and before dinamics have been compresed over and over again to make CD.

No need to pay $$$$ I do disposal for free Just send it to me
