Take a USB cassette deck down memory lane

Another box converts tapes to digital.


First, there was the USB turntable. Now the ubiquitous USB format is going down memory lane to fast-forward ye old cassette deck into the digital future.

If you still actually own a box of moldy cassette tapes somewhere in the home and have warm fuzzy memories of care-free youth spent listening to hissy romance mixes, this gadget from Firebox oughta make it easy to reminisce. It converts those compilations into a digital format that's easier to archive. For the full retro effect, the gear even looks like the original 1980s deal, complete with tape counter and metal/CrO2 tape selector.
