I’d like to test some of the new manufactured tapes that are available today for an article. So I contacted the NAC and asked them if they would agree to send me a pair of tapes to test. And they agreed, and I had to pay just the shipment. So the tapes arrived two weeks […]

I know, I know, cassettes can sound great! But you know, many people out there (and even here) do think that they suck and sound horribly, but cassettes scale very well with your gear. And if you use excellent gear, even a very old tape can sound great. To demonstrate that, I’ve made a video […]

These are the latest cassettes that I’ve added to my collection. Some of them I found in a flea market and the UCX-S was a gift from my friend Mankamaz. I’ve never seen one of this tapes in my country: In fact I wasn’t even aware that they existed. Same for this one: I bet […]

Not long ago I got a copy of Pink Floyd’s dark side moon album, MFSL edition. The sound is fantastic; I’d say better than vinyl. The only problem is that if I try to play it back on the D6C, for example, it doesn’t sound good. Speed goes up and it sounds really weird. This […]

The ’round’ case that was introduced in the late 80s, which measures 12 mm height. The Slim case that was introduced […]

I’ve just  found a nice page that shows a wonderful book made only with music covers from custom made J-cards, mixtapes and CDs. Actually is made here in Catalonia where I live, which made me double happy. I love to watch such tape art, really. I’d spend countless hours looking to every one of these […]

I always was particularly more interested in noise reduction: dolby B, C, S, dbx… it has fascinated me over years. I’m preparing a thorough, in-depth article about it where I’ll explain all details about that. But, in the meantime I just found this nice explanation of Dolby system and I think it’s worth to watch […]

I’ve talked several times (here, here…),  here about National Audio Company, which is a US maker of audio cassettes. They manufacture cassettes for small bands and even big names (like the Guardians of the Galaxy OST) and they sell blank tapes too. Who makes these new cassettes? Interesting question, indeed, because no company that were […]
