    Pro microcassette player?

    Not sure if this is under the Pro Audio Gear thread, so please feel free to move if necessary. Does anyone know if there is a 'pro' microcassette player out there? Maybe not pro, but I'm wondering if there is one that has a better output than a 2.5mm. Thanks :)

    Old audio cassette

    Hey there, I know it's not technically a pro audio thing but my area is mainly making as much noise as possible and I haven't had that much exp mastering. Basically, my mate just brought round a very hectic rave tape. It's awesome, the only problem is that it's possibly a 5th or maybe 4th...
