    With todays technology and for the last Decade or so with high Rez files and now how good streaming services have got, why bother to Spin a Record?

    If you have to ask? You don't know.

    When you don't know that you don't know, well then you don't know (yet). When you know you know, you really do know. The difference can be discombobulating if you are in between but when you know, you know. Those that don't know, don't know and those that do know could really care less about those who don't know, you know?

    When you know, you know? If anyone hasn't gotten there yet? Well then they do not know what they don't know. That's all I have to say about that.

    You know?

    And now that you know that I know you know, you can never say you don’t know again, you know?

    But it's great when you know what you know, when others don't know what they don't know. At that point, just listen and enjoy the music knowing what it is you do know. No worries about those who don't know what they don't know.

    Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tends to be the difficult ones.

    I have a buddy that does not own a TT but has a substantial collection of sealed albums. Over the years he has gifted me some of those albums which also remain sealed and I don't own a TT

    Lot a fellas like you and your friend out there. Some folks are into collecting sealed cassettes. I like to spin my records, but admit that I have a few that I've kept sealed. Not for any reason. I've just never got around to playing them yet.

    I still like to play around with cassettes and got a nice stash of sealed, blank tapes just waiting to be recorded on. I like to use this stuff, but I understand why some just like to collect. Prices on records haven't been immune to inflation and sealed cassette tapes have become a commodity lately. Have y'all seen the prices on some of these NOS cassettes? Metal and Type II especially. YIKES!!! :#

    Njoy bro! B)

    yeah, I watching some of those old NOS TDK and Maxell metal cassettes on Ebay for a while. Occasionally some "decent" deals, relatively speaking, but yeah, mostly pretty crazy.

    It was a fun trip down memory lane, though, seeing all the old tape types. There's a website out there that talks about the different types, what they were good for, and another site that sells some old stock?
    This was interesting for me, because there was no internet back in those days, and I had no idea what I was blowing my measly pay on, or why. The expensive ones must have been better, right? I think I remember them having less hiss or something.

    Still have most of my old mix tapes from the 80s and 90s. One of these days I'm gonna setup one of the decks just to mess with.

    My old 87 Toyota 4wd still has a Kenwood tape deck with ye ole RCA inputs with a 3.5mm jack for when I used to run a portable Magnavox CD/MP3 player. Talk about fancy - that was the deal, having 140 tracks on one disc. I was driving an old truck with the windows down almost all of the time - not like I could tell any difference with the 128K quality. And Napster and a 768K DSL connection?... man, what a time it was... catching up on stuff I never had the money for when I was a kid, and exposure to new stuff. Funny how long it took for streaming services to catch on, and how much resistance there was.
