Re: At least vinyl has made a comeback

It's still very easy to get cassette players - I bought a language lab one in full working order for £25 - and the wonderful analog output means you can transfer the tapes to computer if you wish. Then sell the recorder again on eBay.

When I digitised all my slides, I was able to sell the scanner for nearly what I paid for it, saving me hundreds (if not thousands, they were 645 and 6x6) of pounds that a bureau would have charged.
