If you're not anxious to buy the soundtrack Stranger Things on cassette, you might not have noticed sales of cassettes rising. In 2016, sales increased by a whopping 74 percent and continued to rise. In 2018, sales increased by a further 23 percent to 219,000 tapes compared to 74,000 in 201
Fortunately, this does not seem to be a long-term problem. NAC should receive at least 11 tons of iron oxide this month and expects more regular deliveries thereafter. However, this insertion reveals a hidden weakness of the cassette: the entire cassette industry seems to rely on a single gamma-iron oxide refinery factory.
Some of the cassette manufacturers I talked to about this did not receive this letter. I think it's probably good for everyone to see.
