Sound quality from vinyl is far better so as much as a liked cassettes back in the day they won’t come back in the same way.

My fave old school format always will be minidisc

    Great album, though not sure this would be much use to anyone but a collector?

    Are cassettes (tapes) now returning? Retro. I have a big box of them and almost took them to the tip yesterday. I say almost, my mum of all people, said no, I've heard been people are buying them again.

    Crazy. Only seems like yesterday I put a CD player in my car after years of playing tapes. (2001). Even though I switched to CDs in 1990 at home. Always made recordings to play in the car.


    Then again my mum's car from 2007 only has a tape deck.

    I think they are returning on a small scale but nothing compared to the recent vinyl trend. The issue with cassettes is that they deteriorate over time. I think I read before they only last 30 years or so, so most of them from the 90s don't really have long left. You can get cassette to digital converters nowadays for any that you may not want to keep physically. I'm guessing certain pieces of audio are unique to cassettes so it may be a great way to preserve it.

    Thumbs up this guy, vinyl is great and really fun when collecting, but minidisk is my fav format overall. There was something satisfying about just putting the disk into the player let alone the 24bit sound quality. My brother has even bough a hifi minidisk unit and it does sound amazing. The problem however is each minidisk costs a fortune, they were rare when released (and expensive) and they are even more rare (and expensive) now. However, if you record your vinyl onto minidisk, it keeps most of the quality and is easier to play (i.e. skip songs) than vinyl. Once I get my new room and deck setup, I think I'll be going back to minidisk!

    The main advantage of cassettes & MDs is portability - not for comparison with vinyl.

    And cassettes do deteriorate over time if you drop them in your coffee, leave them to bake on the front seat of the car, give them to the dog to play with, etc.

    We are going backwards, the Digital v Analogue argument belongs in the 1980's, even back then CD sounded better than vinyl. I was working in a HiFi store at the time and a few of the old guys would bang on about the warmth of vinyl . As for analogue cassettes, what is that about?

    Thanks. Those I really want I already bought on CD. So they are museum pieces. Kept them for sentimental reasons but I need the space. If you're right about 30 years or so, they won't be much cop anyway. Not sure a charity shop will take them. None are stand out limited editions or anything like that. Might keep my Icicle Works. Never had them on vinyl but came to them late.

    Fun fact: this album was consciously titled ‘Debut’ in an effort to distance the artist from her actual debut album released in 1977, some 16 years prior.

    Totally agree, still have my Minidisc separate and used my portable one with cassette attachment for years in my old cars before I got one with a CD player. Never been a huge vinyl fan but can appreciate the love it gets but the hassle of skipping tracks, storage room and changing sides outweighs any perceived audio improvement, which if your over 40 like me doesn't matter as your hearing gets worse with age anyway!

    And heat from me op as I love Bjork (except strangely 'Venus as a boy' which is in my top 3 worst songs ever LOL)

    My mum's Skoda from 2007 will play it to you on the tape deck.

    Still going strong. Only 80k on the the clock.

    And we use to take the mick out of them back in the day.

    Volkswagen took them over, am I right?

    Anyway, saw the Skoda Works in Pilzen back in the 1990's while backpacking.

    I got tapes from the 80s still working fine, they dont get a lot of use, but still work fine. techmoan on youtube has some really good audio reviews & curiosities.
    I always prefered tape to vinyl (sounded tinny to me and took a lot of messing with the equaliser but did like the larger covers if the art was good, but everyone has their preferences).
    CD & DVD tends to deteriorate too (ive had more DVD problems than cd though over time).

    Techmoan viewer here too. The greater problem now for cassettes is practically no manufacturers making good quality decks anymore. My last one, probably around 30 years old, is sadly in need of repair; perhaps just needs replacement belts but I haven't opened it up to investigate.

    MD was a nice recording format because of the size, durability, titling, random access. ATRAC compression was lousy though!

    Vinyl is not great for recording to.

    Cassettes will deteriorate no matter how well you keep them, they age. Hence a lot of original master tapes needing 'baking' to be recovered (doesn't always succeed) - on big reels the tape bonds to itself and turns to gunk.
