I’d love to visit that company. Really. In the meantime I’ll simply watch this nice video.
This video has been online for more than a year, but I think it’s worth to add it here. I love this video, and I thank these guys to be still there because of their ‘stubborness’. I hope you guys keep alive for much more years!
This is one of those machines that load the prerecorded magnetic tape onto an empty cassette. It does it so fast that it’s almost impossible to watch how it actually cuts the tape and sticks it to the reel, but it indeed does…
Today I wake up with a notification about a great new video from Techmoan. This time is more an educational video, and it talks about how prerecorded cassettes were made in the 90s using new digital duplication bins. In those years majority of people gradually lost interest on cassettes, in favour of the new CDs, so […]
Double decks have been the king of the hill for the late 80s and almost the entire 90s. Everyone had one of these at home or in the boombox. But there were a few decks that could carry with up to 5 and even 6 cassettes inside. These decks could do a 10-hour playing session without […]
I bought my dbx 224X unit some years ago, to record my own dbx cassettes. A few years later I added my first dbx-equipped deck: the Technics RS-B965. Thanks to John Lydle, the most passionated walkman collector I’ve ever known I knew about the dbx vinyl discs. I was very curious about them and bought my first […]
If you thought auto-reverse decks and walkmas were always using 4-tracks heads or rotating heads, then you should see this beautiful video by Matt, aka Techmoan. Beautiful. My Nakamichi RX-505 works with the same principle of this AKAI, but in a much more clever way.
In this video my friend Mat, aka Techmoan, shows many things about cassettes. I absolutely love this video, and I think it’s one of the best out there. Not only it explains many things very cleverly, it is also a pleasure to watch to. It’s probably my favorite one of his videos. Remember that if […]
“Many of us like to listen to music on our smartphones these days, but some of us can still fondly remember the slighty hissy sound from cassette tapes – just before they got tangled up. Well, it appears they’re making a comeback, with sales surging in the US, UK and the home of the Sony […]
I have been doing my own J-cards for some years. I started drawing a template in Macromedia Freehand (which although outdated it’s one of the best design software out there). I have done lots of different J-cards for my kids to help them identify their own cassettes, so they can listen to whatever one when […]
