I just did a search for cassettes on Amazon.com and got 177,692 results.
I do have a question about cassettes. Many of us still have hundreds of
cassettes. Our sole interest is in listening to the cassettes or
transferring them to CDs or computer files.
I am surprised that no one seems to make good playback equipment which does
not record. Surely there would be a number of advantages to such machines.
Cheap playback machines were often found in the early days of the cassette.
