I have a fairly sizeable cassette collection and I'm not gonna kid myself into thinking it's anything but a cheap way of supporting artists and having a collection of items that's easy to store. I buy the cassette, download lossless audio files and then listen to the files. Shipping records all over the world is expensive, shipping a tape not so much.
Totally valid response. I'm not some sort of elitist that thinks the world needs to be purged of cassettes or whatever, but I do roll my eyes when people assume that because they're physical media they're high quality. As with all things, they have their place, it's just that their place is not really in the hi-fi system.

  • Jackeline:
    I always found hilarious how people used to make fun of graphic designers in the past, and nowadays there is a decent demand for our experience and work.
