        Thing was... the party tape, the compilation for your girl-/boy-friend... very social things, cassettes!

        And then the early days of really portable audio.

        They definitely have a place in history.

        The ease of copying is what I remember most. The tangled rats nest ranks a close 2nd.

        I used to do the same - taping LPs for the car and for portability, and compilations. Yes, they have a place in history - where they should stay. Having said that, I'm going to play an old compilation now...

      The Blitzwolf IEM case is big enough to also hold a DragonFly and an Android OTG cable. Convenient!

        Anything that stops me losing my shit (in all senses) on aeroplanes is a worthwhile innovation.

      New bearing/sub-platter unit made the Rega more speed-stable; trouble is, it also made it (even) faster >:-(
