It was one of the funnier commercials in my (much) younger days.

 

And I adore mrs Fitzgerald's music....

 

Never bought the tapes though, never owned a proper cassette-deck (I wanted a Nak,  but by the time I could afford one, the days of the cassette-deck were over).

 

Thanks for sharing, brings back memories of a bygone age, the golden era of hifi..

I do not want my Nakamichi cassette deck mixed in with 8-track.  That would denigrate my SQ, and the memory and legacy of Dr. Nakamichi.

 

We should have two separate sub-forums: one for cassette and one for 8-track.

 

(or sub-fora, for the persnickety)


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

I actually bought this for my sister:

A dashboard alone.? I bet she'd prefer a whole Mustang (even without an audio system) 9_9

 


The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.
