Thread Name: Death of PR Cassette
Subject: RE: Death of PR Cassette
Ian started this thread with a comment asking if this the music industry dictating to us again.    Quite the opposite, we are dictating what we want to the industry. The same thing led to the demise of vinyl.   Once people heard the sound quality and realized the convenience, the vinyl album became a dinosaur. Same thing with cassettes. They sound miserable. Always have, always will. CD's became portable and recordable and there was less need for cassettes. I also think MiniDiscs are incredible, but here in the U.S. they are being marketed without any apparent strategy. People here just don't know about them.

I will be glad to be rid of cassettes. May they rest in peace alongside eight tracks.
