Why buy a cassette player?

The special feature of a cassette player is that it can reproduce sound in a completely analogue way, with a number of limitations that have been overcome by the introduction of digital. What has just been said may seem a contradiction, but the imperfections of reproduction typical of magnetic tapes are particularly appreciated by those who consider digital media too aseptic in terms of timbre and sound characteristics, despite their absolute hi-fidelity. Some musicians appreciate analogue sources to the point of creating high-definition digital copies for later inclusion in their musical compositions.

There is another important aspect to consider, namely the physicality of the medium. As with vinyl, cassette tapes have a very special charm, which is in stark contrast to the immateriality of the files contained in digital storage devices. For many music lovers who wink at tradition, this is a central issue, and for music collectors, tapes can have a great emotional value, like vinyl. For this reason, a cassette player is an iconic device, often found in the homes of audiophiles who prefer the warm, 'imperfect' sound of a cassette and a tape player to the 'coolness' of digital media such as CD.
