Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

Cassette vs. iPod

Last Tuesday I had to tow a small trailer on a 350 mile run. Since my '97 Dodge is one of the old diesels I use noise blocking ear buds and an iPod for a more pleasant ride. This time, however, my old Sony Walkman came out along with cassettes that had been recorded in the 80's and 90's along with some pre-recorded tapes.

Even on the old Walkman and old tapes I was surprised at how good the sound was.

Once home I a/b compared cassette and CD versions of ABBA's SuperTrooper by playing them simultaneously and switching sources back and forth on my receiver. The cassette sounded better all around.

Now it's time to dig through my collection for some classical or baroque and compare that.
