Definition Edit

The compact cassette (often referred to as audio cassette, cassette tape, cassette, or simply tape) is a magnetic tape sound recording format.

Overview Edit

Although originally designed for dictation, improvements in fidelity led the compact cassette to supplant reel-to-reel tape recording in most non-professional applications. Its uses ranged from portable audio to home recording to data storage for early microcomputers. Between the early 1970s and late 1990s, the cassette was one of the two most common formats for prerecorded music, first alongside the LP and later the compact disc.
