Wondering if you can still buy a cassette player online?

Do you remember back to the Seventies and early Eighties when the must-have gadget for listening to your favourite music gradually starting moving away from LPs to the more portable, lightweight and easy-to-handle cassette tape? In the mid Seventies there was even a brief flirtation with the eight-track cartridge – in retrospect the Betamax of the music cassette world – but it’s popularity was short-lived and soon gave way to the slim cassette tape we are all familiar with. Cassettes reached the height of their popularity with the advent of in-car cassette players and portable players such as the Sony Walkman which meant you could access all of you music on the move. However, technology moves on inexorably and soon cassettes were on the way out, replaced in turn by compact discs.

So where does that leave you if you have lots of cassette tapes of your favourite artists? You can’t play them on your CD player or stream them via the internet. Fortunately, there are still a number of specialist retailers, particularly online, that stock an extensive range of top quality, modern, state-of-the-art audio equipment on which you can play your treasured cassettes, from whom you can buy a cassette player to meet your needs. Some of these may be stand-alone devices by cutting edge manufacturers, but if you are not sure you can justify the expense of buying audio equipment just to play your old cassette collection, why not invest in an audio system on which you can play a variety of different formats, from cassettes to CDs and even MP3s. That way you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
