I asked for an 8 track player for christmas......... I love them!!!!!
I prefer ANALOG on my analogue media and between cassettes and 8 tracks,8 TRACKS ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE THE ORIGINAL ANALOG SOURCE!!!!
The who - Whos next for example..... That cassette was made in the late 80s -- PROBABLY DIGITALLY SOURCED .. The 8 track was released in 1971 (Original decca release (6-9182) and will sound MUCH BETTER!! (Provided the 8 track has been taken care of))
I had a cassette of WHOS NEXT and it sounded thin,etc........ I got rid of it..... (I DO NOT LIKE DIGITAL CRAP)
