Curious question for you gentlmen...

Post by Audiophile_719 » Sat Jan 07, 2012 2:11 pm

Hello fellow audiophiles! Just wondering if I am the only one or not. Who else here still rocks out on Cassette Players, 8 track players, and Reel-to-Reels?

I still have cassettes and my truck has only radio / cassette. I had a reel-to-reel but left it with the ex when I left.

Several folks here have reel-to-reel & cassette machines. Not sure if we have any 8-track listeners.....
