Are all new personal stereos doomed?

From Techmoan. I was hoping to have better news – but nope, it is what it is. I have to call it – the likelihood of ever seeing a good new cassette ‘Walkman’ ever again is so close to zero…I’ll just say it’s zero. I have to thank YoungSung Jeon (our man in Korea) for…

The struggle to play Philips’ giant cassette

From Techmoan. I want to show you a type of Philips music cassette you most likely haven’t seen before. I was very fortunate to get one…but it turned out that was the easy part. Getting its 1970s player to work took a lot more effort. 00:00 Backstory 03:14 The player 06:40 Giving it a go…
