    I'm old enough to remember those and the machines that used them.

    and here's the device: http://cgi.ebay.com/RCA-Reel-to-reel...768944QQihZ011, the seller is wondering about "special reels" , which are not included
    Here's link to some good photos of the machine: http://www.proradioantic.ro/?x=item&id_p=3409

    WWWOOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!

    Thanks Zee!!

    How COOL!

    So that is obviously all pre-Philips Compact Cassette? Is this RCA thingy the reason they called it "Compact"? And did the RCA thingy sort of drive the development of the Philips design?

    How cools is that?!?!?

    don't know details of "the history" of the development, but I'd say that the idea, that the distance between the centers of the reels does not have to be no less than the diameter of the reels is (was) pretty cool

    how many minutes of tape would it hold, what reel size would that cassette be equivalent too, and sought of looks like a audio cartridge for radio adds or something?
