it competed with the sony minidisc and failed due to poor reliability.

(Appears) Yes, I seem to remember something about them. Big things you had to rewind. We used them back in the old days waaaay back when I was a living boy.

I remember! I used to have a VCR when I was younger. I used to watch Tom & Jerry, as well as the first episodes of Scooby Doo on it. Ahhh... Good times...

Panasonic made a professional digital audio tape recorder which used a vhs cassette to record on. I remember I wanted one of those things in the worst way. it eventually was superceded by the sony digital audio tape format which worked like a video recorder but was tiny, matchbox-sized cassettes.

Do you still use turntables, AuntBlabby----known to those of us who lived during pre-VHS-times as "record players?"

I have one set up for 78 rpm records, one for LPs and 45s, and one set up for lumpy records that need a high tracking force and wider stylus for worn grooves, my older brother donated that to me. also have one working cassette deck my sister donated to me, and a heavy bulky old Akai open reel deck for the reel tapes, and a quad 8-track deck that plays both 2 and 4 channel tapes. it needs new belts, though. I have a collection of a few thousand LPs, 45s, and 78 rpm records. they take up a spare bedroom.
do you still have your record player? :dj:

boom boxes are handy if you go places/work outside and want ambient music. I don't play records to listen to them, only to transcribe them onto digital media and/or apply audio restoration to them.

I wish you could build yourself a DeLorean, and have some kid with a down vest stop by your place, on his way to 1955.....

thank you :flower: but i'd rather go forwards in time to "2015" like what was depicted in part II, at least that version of 2015 with the flying cars and holographic billboards and such. what year do you want to go forward to? :bounce:
