No Joe I do CD's & DVD's now. The old 8tracks were a history nastalic thing. They won't plat anymore anyway. I tried to copy an old 8T to CD & the foam behind the tapes head alinment thing was deterioated soo bad it would not play correctly. they also will break when the channel change foil passes true da head area.

Yeah the reel still works I'll take some stills of it With my LP collection

I have converted all my CDs to MP3s.....now I am looking for a phono analog to digital converter to rip all my old vinyl...and there is tons of it. There is digital processing programs now that can remove almost all of the scratches in the sound as well.

Man the hiss & scratchs were what made LP's so Sexy. It brings a tear to my eye, they hold many fond memories. Just like playin brushes on a old old jazz dance song Does

You must be a young Boy BL

My first new car (69 chevy impala) had an 8 track player and I thought I had reached the top of the mountain.

I remember the guy (kid) at the audio shop convincing me that 8-tracks were better than cassettes because there's more tape width (so they don't cramp the music, I guess) and you don't have to turn them over. Made sense.

It a lie! 8 tracks L & R T1 - T4 on a 1/4inch tape? Hell thats crame packed.
Even on my Sony recorder the specs are 40 to 13,000 hz. That sucks,
a casset with high bias Cro2 tape is 30 to 16,000 hz. I think Metal tape is 20 to 18,000 hz.

The real problem with 8T is wow & futter as the the tape & drive belt in the player gets old.

I think you can still buy blank 8Ts from radio shack. Don't know why one would though

John I have the yes fragial on 8t also
