Onkyo Launches, uh, Cassette Deck

This site has moved to AVReport.com

Onkyo TA-RW255 Cassette DeckI don't even remember how to spell cassette but Onkyo is launching a double deck and here is their explanation why they are doing it:
While cassette sales are in decline globally, having accounted for 54 per cent of all music sales in the mid-80s the format is still a huge seller in many Asian, East European and Far Eastern markets where over half of all music sales are on cassette. Audio books also remain a huge market
for the cassette so this 40 year old format still has much life in it. All of which explains why the Onkyo has just launched the TA-RW255, a Double Cassette Deck that offers excellent cassette playback and dubbing capabilities in a beautifully-built value for money package.
And obviously Onkyo TA-RW55 has all the bells and whistles such as Dolby B and C Noise Reduction. Yeah, whatever.
