I get what ya saying, but I can still live in some variety of desperate hope. I mean a revival doesn't just rely on the quality of the medium, it's the whole image of the thing. Vinyl became so romanticised that there was enough demand to bring it back to an extent. I'd say there is a slim chance that the same could happen for tape.

Buuuuuuut, the another problem may be that cassettes aren't actual that outdated. The newest tape I have is from 2006 and Walkman Cassette players (in there newer iterations) Only stopped being produced 5 years ago.

I dunno I've kind of come to love cassettes for their aesthetic and the sound quality doesn't bother me one bit (honestly once I got into them they weren't half as bad I thought they were going to be).

Hmm ye I heard. Kinda pissed me off when I found about the Guardians thing. I recently got a ton of cassette tapes so I started looking for one. I really hate the slightly newer/ 90s ones with the cheap curved black plastic. Also I hate the fact you can't see the tape inside those ones as well (childish I know). I was really looking, like you said, for the iconic 80s Walkman with the much squarer design. My only hope is that we have a Cassette revival like we did the Vinyl revival and companies do some reproduction pieces.
#56 - Lambda (01/02/2015) [-]
This is the one I really want. The WM10. It's one of the smallest, if not the smallest, ever made. And to make the thing that small was a marvel of engineering, and I'd love to have one just for that reason. Expensive, though, if you can find one at all.
#57 - Lambda (01/02/2015) [-]
oops, the image got fucked up.
User avatar #62 - diablojoe (01/02/2015) [-]
That is one I've had my eye out for.
I also like the TPS L2 (not realising it's apparently the one from Guardians (not seen it))
And well: www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Legendary-Sony-Walkman-TPS-L2-Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-/351269213018
I don't fancy paying upwards of £100 for one to be honest. I couldn't stand the thought of breaking it at that cost
User avatar #64 - Lambda (01/02/2015) [-]
Oh, and that one apparently doesn't work either. And people are still paying that much for it.
User avatar #66 - diablojoe (01/02/2015) [-]
Says fully operational in the description. Although I have seen broken ones go for that much. I am half tempted to find a slightly cheaper, broken one and see of there's a way to restore it, but I'm not exactly and expert when it comes to electronics...
User avatar #68 - Lambda (01/02/2015) [-]
"The drive does not turn with new batteries but the operation red light does come on. I have made no attempt to try open the unit to repair."
it says fully optional, but he sneaked this into the description. It's probably a broken belt. In a unit this small, it's probably some proprietary special belt that's going to be really tough to find a replacement for.
If ever you come across a tape machine that seems functional except nothing spins, it's a safe bet that it's got a bad belt.
User avatar #71 - diablojoe (01/02/2015) [-]
Ohhh I read the default eBay description.
And yeah I've heard that before. Also this: www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sony-Walkman-TPS-L2-Sony-MDR-3L2-Headphones-Case-Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Tape/111562374697

6 days left, already up to that cost. At least it works though.
User avatar #72 - Lambda (01/02/2015) [-]
It blows my mind that people drop so much money on stupid shit like this. Don't get me wrong, I acquire a lot of stupid shit, but I either get it for free or for less than 30 bucks.
User avatar #73 - diablojoe (01/02/2015) [-]
It amazes me that something that is outdated and was on the verges of being considered junk by the majority of people a few years ago now carries such a huge value. My Dad's had his Walkman since 1983 (no idea of the model, not seen it in years) and for the longest time he kept it for the sentimental value assuming it had barely any monetary value.

Also do you know anything about these things? www.amazon.co.uk/Audio-Cassette-Tape-Converter-Player-Black/dp/B009LWF9UE/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1420237124&sr=1-1&keywords=cassette+player

They seem to be the most common newer cassette players, as well as converter. Cheap too. A lot of them have mixed reviews though, which is worrying.
User avatar #75 - Lambda (01/02/2015) [-]
I know nothing about that, no. I'd be wary of it, though. Just looking at the thing, I wouldn't buy it.
If you're looking to convert cassettes to digital, what I'd recommend is to just pirate the album, because you'd certainly get it in better quality. Failing that, the best way would be to use a decent tape deck, not a portable player, and go from the line out into a decent sound card.
The fact that this device is being marketed to people who want to convert cassettes quickly and easily makes me doubt its quality and durability.
User avatar #78 - diablojoe (01/02/2015) [-]
I'm not interested in converting formats to be honest (at this point I have my favourite album in 4 seperate formats), I'm just thinking of a cheap player to tide me over until I can find a better quality one. But thanks anyway.
User avatar #63 - Lambda (01/02/2015) [-]
Yeah, I'm broke, so there's no way I'd drop more than 30 bucks on one. I would love to have the one from the movie, because I really liked the movie, but that's never going to happen.
I'm always trolling ebay/thrift stores/the dump for cool stuff like this, so maybe I'll happen to find one someday.
User avatar #65 - diablojoe (01/02/2015) [-]
That's my plan, cruise a few vintage shops, see if I can find a seller who doesn't know it's worth.
User avatar #54 - Lambda (01/02/2015) [-]
I use cassettes in my car, so I have a ton of them. I find old tapes with dictation or whatever on them, then record them over with whatever albums/mixes I want. My phone (droid 4) has such unbelievably shitty sound quality that it's not worth having music on it. Sounds like listening to music over a phone line.
I have one of those mid-90's walkmans. The sound quality is surprisingly good, but I don't really like it for the exact reasons you mentioned. It's cheap plastic, it feels light like a toy (though it is light to carry around), and you can't see the tape inside the thing.

I really doubt that there's going to be a cassette revival. Maybe for small hipster bands that dig the low-fi thing. The thing is, that cassette tapes really don't have very good sound quality. Vinyl does, so its revival makes sense. But the reason why cassette tapes existed was for portability, and that has now been far superseded by smartphones and other devices. So the only people who have reason to use tapes are those (like me) who get a kick out of physical media.

What I really can't wait for is Source 2. If it's even half as good as the Source engine was when it came it out, will be a-ma-zing. I really hope it's the first engine to tackle real time water physics properly, but that's probably way to much to ask for.

**rollfourexplain used "*roll 1, 0-9999*"**
**rollfourexplain rolls 6,821**

I think it will do water better but I don't expect that.

In related news: DOTA2 confirmed for eventual porting to Source 2. That is the strongest bit of clear confirmation we have that this stuff is finally chugging along. It's good to be patient.

At this rate I'm starting to wonder if Black Mesa www.blackmesasource.com is going to fully release before or after Source 2 comes out. That would be very ironic if it was that late.

That is not good. I´d wager you have to fill up your braking fluid asap. Think about it: If the pedal goes halfway before something happens, about half of it is missing. And with only half the fluid, you can only generate half the braking power in case of emergency. I´m talking 100-0 km/h in 100 m +!
User avatar #67 - Lambda (12/29/2014) [-]
It's normal on my car. The first couple inches of the brake pedal's travel is just to engage the brake light switch. Then the rest of it actually actuates the brakes.
It's got more than enough braking force to lock the wheels.

Yeah, I'm confused by that too. As I understand it, nothing with mass can move at the speed of light because it would take infinite energy regardless of how small the mass is.
