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.

No. I can't remember even ever seeing a stereo microcassette, or even a good quality high bias one. I thought all those were used for was dictation and old answering machines using cheap normal bias tape.

How about one of those hand-held digital recorders, instead?

Unless there's some odd reason you want to use something that may be difficult to find tapes for, anyway?

Are we going to be left wondering?

The person that needs this already has a bunch of microcassetts and is digitizing them. Otherwise, a digital hand-held definitely would do the job.

I didn't think anything of the sort is really out there, but thought I'd see if anyone here might know of one.

Thanks for the advice!
