Cassettes to CD Service
Ah yes, the 80s. When the hair was big and the gas mileage was small. Every cassette came with a free denim jacket and a nice set of shoulder pads. Those were heady times.
Unfortunately, as awesome as cassettes were, they weren’t exactly built to last. Kind of like Billy Joel’s marriages. Not only are they unstable and prone to breakage, unless you’ve been asleep for the last 30 years you might have noticed it’s getting harder and harder to find a device that will actually play them for you. Cars are rarely equipped with cassette players anymore, and you’ll have a hard time finding an appropriate device at your local electronics store. What we’re saying is, it might be time for you to move on.
Thumb drive, digital delivery through Southtree Cloud™ and CDs are an amazing technological advance. They last for a very long time, and storing them is easy.
CDs are also still one of the prevailing methods of listening to music today – the odds are great that you’ve got some in your home right now (and they’re definitely on the shelf of your local electronics store) and the odds are pretty low that you’ve still got the kind of cassette player you’ll need to listen to your tapes (and that’s something you won’t find at the electronics super store). If you’ve got old tapes that you can’t access, it’s time to make the cassette to Digital switch with Southtree. Get back together with your memories.Order Now
