Sorry, can’t help it. We pine for the yesteryears when men were men and recording devices came with boxes of spooled delight tangled around your feet. Yes we’re wearing rosy glasses, but c’mon, do the modern digital equivalents have anywhere near the romance of a gently whooshing tape reel?
Well they’re gone and all but forgotten, but we’ve still got this Retro Tape Deck Calculator to keep us company in our old age. It may not be able to play back those old Hendrix classics, but it does feature solar charging and a fancy ‘digitul’ display. Whatever that is. Sigh. Yours for £8.49, which is a LOT less than our old Akai 4000 deck used to be.
