With the recent announcement from Olympus that all Microcassette Tapes have been discontinued it truly means we are coming towards an end of an era, the era of Analogue (tape) recording devices. With the advent of Digital Recording products in the early 1990’s many people believed these analogue machines would have been a thing of the past a long time ago, this is however far from what is the case today. Many small businesses, individuals and even the odd corporate company still have the old tried and tested tape machines performing critical day to day activities within those businesses.
Analogue tape machines or dictaphones as they are commonly known have been around since the early 1940’s (history) , through the years the recordings have been made on Standard Cassettes (in the earlier days) and more recently on either Microcassette or Minicassettes. Olympus discontinued their production of Minicassette tapes a few years ago and we have just received notice that all Microcassette tapes will now also be discontinued. This means that once our current stock consignment of Olympus Microcassette’s runs out there will be many professionals in the South African market that find themselves in a position where they need to upgrade to the new Digital Systems. Although this may well be seen as rather frustrating by some its not necessarily a bad thing, the new digital systems offer far more in the way of functions / features and usability and this can transform into making ones daily work easier and more efficient therefore saving you time and money in the long run.
With the above in mind Olympus Audio S.A have decided we would like to help, we are currently running an R850 special (Special Offer) on the trade-in of old analogue devices for the new Olympus Professional Line system. Please see the link above (special offer) for further details and contact us to take advantage of this fantastic offer.
