The AIWA portable speakers in action, feeded with my Super-DD9 by Dr Walkman. Yes, through my phone’s built-in mic the quality cannot be fully enjoyed, but I assure you that they sound great. Powerful, clean, full and rich.
I’ve recently found a nice, unknown gem: Ana[dia]log Youtube channel. That’s a channel about dialog of analog music reproduction, which is how the author calls it. It covers many different aspects about analog audio, like vinyl, turntables, cassettes, R2R and even walkmans recently. And that’s exactly the video I wanted to show you: I […]
This saturday I’ve been at Cassette Culture, the very first market for small releases in cassette. See my first post about that. I’ve been CJ’ing for an hour and a half and it was a lot of fun, though it was more like ambient music rather than loud music for dancing. These small labels were selling mostly […]

The former is only releasing them in reel tapes but the latter is doing it with cassettes. And here comes the interesting thing… I’ve seen that they released an album called A PORTRAIT OF […]
I’ve recently found an interesting store at eBay from a chap that has hundreds of -mainly- sealed tapes for sale: dr Bo. I was interested in many of them to complete my collection. Some are pretty rare and difficult to find, so I went and buy some. The prices aren’t cheap, even for less rare tapes […]
On may 22th TASCAM has released the new 202MkVII, a dual deck with simultaneous recording capabilities. If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll remember the TASCAM CD-A580 some time ago… that didn’t impressed me much actually. The new deck is a dual deck, but… who does need it these days?.
