Forgotten Audio Formats: DCC & Elcaset

An affectionate look at two failed, but entertaining cassette formats. Information on the other items featured in this video HERE:

Over the last year or so I’ve been assembling an esoteric HiFi system featuring a mix of both old and new components. The equipment I’ve bought has little to do with convenience, value for money or performance, in fact most of the items have been selected purely for their curiosity value. I’ve enjoyed learning about reel-to-reel tapes, 8-tracks, DCC, and Elcaset. I’ve also invested in a new record player (sorry turntable) and purchased records (sorry vinyl) for the first time since the early 80s.  It’s no co-incidence that I’ve started to enjoy listening to music again too.
