Make no mistake, tape is the hippest music medium of all. Monoprice knows this and that’s why the company has deftly moved to make its mark in the burgeoning cassette playback category of audiophile sound. Three new cassette products make up the Cassette Series line: Handheld Tape Player, Smart Tape Player, and Boom Box. Nostalgists take note!

The Monolith Cassette Series Personal Portable Tape Player is priced at $199.99 and offers Dolby A,B,C, S NR, HX Pro, an integrated 24bit/192Khz DAC, Bluetooth with aptX HD, and uses Type I, II, III, IV Tape plus is DCC compatible. It even accepts AA batteries, for convenient on-the-go power.
The Monolith Cassette Series Smart Tape Player knows exactly when to stop and when to rewind. It’ll even fast forward and rewind based on voice commands. It will be upgraded to “artificially intelligent” status with future firmware. This player features a wireless antenna that captures pristine FM and AM signals and is approachably priced at $699.99. Did I mention it has a headphone jack? Imagine that.
