Hi Trelja; when I was a kid (45-50 yrs. ago), my folks had an Edison windup phonograph in the attic, complete with a stack of near 1/4" thick records. We got to play it once in awhile, and all I'll say is that hifi has come a long way since then! As to your thread, in this age of digital, a couple of years ago, I bought a Sony 3 head KA3ES cassette recorder (MSRP $980.) that sounds excellent when good ($3.50-$4.) tapes are used. I use it to make tapes for my truck, and walkman(s). I record my own from CD. The main thing lacking in sound quality are some dynamics; tape hiss is almost non-existent. Very smooth. When other systems are down, I really don't mind listening to tapes made and played on this machine-- it's that good. Cheers. Craig.
