Adding more fuel to the whisperings that cassette tape is the next old school format to be revived, Recording The Masters, the French tape manufacturer, is just about to launch MYSTIK, which they say is “a modern-day analogue cassette player with a focus on quality audio playback”.

Launching on Kickstarter this week, the brand told us more: “What will make MYSTIK a modern day player is that it will have a rechargeable battery that allows it to take power from the outlet, meaning that one will not have to purchase disposable batteries. MYSTIK will also have an optional Bluetooth feature, meaning that when using the device you will have a switch that allows you to connect to Bluetooth headphones or speakers. It will be utilizing the latest in Bluetooth 5.0 technology. For those who prefer to keep a fully wired connection to maintain a pure analogue signal or simply to use wired headphones, there will also be a standard 3.5mm headphone jack that one can plug in at all time”.

Mixtapes

The MYSTIK portable cassette player will also have the ability to record onto blank cassette tapes, meaning that one can make their own mixtapes (remember them?) if desired. And, of course, Recording The Masters have cassettes back in production too.

If the fundraising is successful, Recording The Masters hope to manufacture and ship the device by September of 2020.
