    Don't forget to clean & demagnetize the heads (indeed, the whole tape path) before passing sonic judgment. :)

    Oh Jeez, where did I put that de-magnetizer? 3 or 4 houses ago, dang, gone! What do you recommend kind sir? :smile:

    I long thought tape's were pretty cool and loved making mix tapes (aka play lists for the youngins). However, I'd be surprised if any comeback would last. Unlike vinyl, or CDs, where do you see pre-recorded tapes anymore? It would recording your own from vinyl or CD or streamed music. After the gee-wiz factor is gone, what's the point?

    I still think cassettes are cool though and play them occasionally.

    My wife took my eldest to a Twenty One pilots concert this month. They had all their albums for sale on cassette. It is making a comeback albeit isolated.

    eBAY... although there are new ones still available (at least, last I knew) from, e.g., http://usrecordingmedia.com/

    Actually, the little cassette-shell-shaped electronic demagnetizers work well for the heads, but AFAIK don't do nothin' for the rest of the tape path.

    FWIW, my go-to demagnetizer for nigh-on 40 years has been one of these from good ol' R/S :)

    The Cleaner/Solvent I used to use was R12, which is no longer produced due to EPA regulations. Had to switch to Isopropyl Alcohol. Alcohol dries out the rubber parts though.

    Cloth diapers are still available.
    Nope mom never saved mine. The two I have are 30+ yrs. old. They have only been used for my disc's. Most of the time i used my Disc washer (bought at Musicland remember that?)but once i ran out of circular cleaning pads a fliud I started using the diapers.

    I played some chess games listening to some cassettes about a year ago and enjoyed the crystal clear sound from my player and system.

    Dave, do you have some old cassettes of Billy Idol or Alan Parsons still laying around?
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.
