In my never ending search for the perfect headphone, I bought a 2nd-hand ultra high-end Sennheiser HD800, their flagship model. It’s not only gorgeous to watch but also sounds incredibly well. This headphone represents the top-of-the-top in the circumaural (I mean: full size headphone) category. When I first heard this headphone I noticed how detailed and open it sound […]
Last year my good friend Lorenzo, aka ‘TJ Autoreverse’ ran what was probably the very first cassette party in our country, and maybe the world’s first party driven with… walkmans! If you wasn’t aware of that, you may read my post about it. Now we are in 2017 and we’re preparing a new one, this […]
No, it’s not a super-ultra-high-end player as you may be thinking, it’s the absolute opposite: the very first and most basic player ever. The Saehan Mpman was indeed the very first MP3 player in the history and had very basic features: just play, stop, next and previous song. And a mere 32MB capacity. Yes, you read […]
I’m not sure what Philips wants to do with this but anyway it’s a nice video about cassettes. There you can see some stories: transgressive records and Kissability records (who are releasing new music in cassettes), Awesome tapes from africa and other interesting stories…
I’ve just found a nice video about cassettes. It explains what most of us who’s been usigng cassetets for years already know, but it’s cool to watch to. The lighting is definitely something to improve. If the author improves that, his videos will be much better though… Anyway I liked it.
I recently discovered by luck searching in Google that there exist a Cassette bar in Barcelona (!) I was so happy to see that such thing exists, and it was very near me. (see map) I went on friday night to eat and drink something and here’s my experience. The bar it self is beside the […]
I love to do recordings, and I always do them in one of my decks (see my collection in this video). Using a good deck and proper guidelines (as explained in my guide to make good recordings) does end up in a very good quality. Much more than many people think a cassette can hold. […]
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…
