Product Description

From the Manufacturer

These tapes use an ultrafine, Super Avilyn Type II, high-bias cobalt formulation with high-density packing and uniform orientation. They offer exceptionally high resolution, superior dynamic range, and very low noise, which makes them ideal for taping from a wide variety of music sources, including CDs. TDK SA tape employs the advanced AR-RC III mechanism for superior rigidity and reduced modulation noise, and is especially recommended for use in home component systems, high-performance portables, and car stereos. This is a five-pack of SA90 high bias cassettes.

Product Description

Package of 5 Super Avilyn blank audio cassettes for 90 minute record time each

People have been saying for years that tapes would die, but fortunately, they never seem to. I know a number of people who have the car stereo that has BOTH cd and the cassette. For that matter, I am starting to see cassette walkmans again. If you follow my reviews, you know that because of the dangers of cd rot, I prefer to make tapes of my cds and use them when possible. For those of you who don't know about cd rot, it is capable of wiping out a whole collection of cds. What happens is that heat and moisture turn the cd purple and make it unreadable. (In extreme cases, holes in the cd are prevalent.) If your cds are not so over the top, they may actually transfer well onto normal bias cassettes such as Maxell UR or TDK D. A previous reviewer pointed out that if you are making tapes of your cds to use in your car, a lot of times a normal bias cassette will suffice, since most car stereo speakers are not designed for high output. (He called the Maxell UR a perfect workhorse tape.) But moving to the high quality TDK SA tape, these tapes are superb and capable of holding the material even from high intense cds such as "Metallica's" 'Ride the Lightning,' "Megadeth's" 'Rust In Peace,' or "Exodus's" 'Tempo of the Damned.' I'll conclude by saying that TDK SA will not only give you excellent travel friendly copies of your cds, but using them when you travel will keep your cds safe from cd rot.

As an aging music geek - who still finds a use for cassettes - I've found that these TDK cassettes work in my deck when Maxells don't. In the olden days, I preferred Maxells, but the times have changed.

These tapes are the best for reproduction of sounds especially from CD. Sounds just as good.

I love to make tapes of the styles of music that i own. I had stooped for a while since retailer have stopped selling the TDK SA90 tapes. Thanks to Amazon I now can continue with my hobby. The tapes were delivered promtly and are of the high quality that I've always enjoyed.

It's getting hard to find high bias cassette tape but these guys still have some good stuff. I use it to transfer music from vinyl LP format to tape, then capture the analog using my desktop computer sound card and an old Sony Walkman cassette player that still works fine. The freeware Audacity software using the MP3 plugin completes the re-format to digital that I can play on any modern music player, even (gasp) an iPod but I use a Sansa (so much cheaper and I can replace the battery myself). My stereo equipment is all about 25 years old, my turntable and speakers more like 35 years old. They all work fine. My pickup truck is a 1991 model with a cassette deck and no CD adapter; I've probably several hundred factory cassette tapes, far more than CD's. I did give away most of the old LP's, too scratched up to bother with. But I still have some good ones and need to convert them to digital, that is why I still need new blank tape once in a while. I got these tapes from "Recording Store", good price and service, I recommend them. The resulting MP3 files really sound great, I'm very pleased with the quality. Only problem is it take a couple hours to convert an entire LP. But I work cheap.

I've been using TDK SA as well as Maxell IIL cassette tape for recording some of my estimated 3500 LPs and 250 EPs. I have, of course, one of the best cassette recorders on the planet. The two head Nakamichi BX 125 records beautifully. My sourse is a Nottingham Space Deck with Graham 2.2 tonearm and three stereo cartridges and a Mono one as well. I DO NOT record CDs. I'm only interested in keeping things "Analogue". I suppose it would be a wise move to start purchasing these tapes by the hundreds. I can't see them lasting another 10 years!

Jeff Galin of ESLabs keeps the NAK in fine working order. They don't make these anymore....so one has to keep them maintained to last.

Long live Analogue!!!

It's hard to find quality cassette tapes anymore- technology has passed them by. However, I had several old cassettes that needed to be re-recorded before time took them away. The TDK SA90's came yesterday, and I spent the afternoon transfering old recordings on my double cassette deck. The sound quality is excellent, and now I have my old studio demos and live band recordings for another 30yrs. I highly recommend the TDK's. I have both cassette and reel to reel TDK tapes that are over 30 yrs. old and still sound perfect.
