After seeing Techmoan's video on cassette tapes, I have picked up a renewed interest in the format despite its flaws. Ended up getting a Sony TC-WR645S deck with the almighty Dolby S noise reduction on eBay and while it is not a Nakimichi Dragon, it still packs a solid punch. I know tapes are crap compared to vinyl and even CDs, but like a good floppy disk, it just has this interesting feel to it that is hard to describe.
Also not a MAJOR tape collector and never will be, but I listen to a lot of retro/synthwave artists and other assorted electronic ones that have released their music on tapes on Bandcamp, so it is great to have the tech to listen to those with good sound.
