By the way...the RCA Victor Tape Cartridge was pretty much the same thing as the Elcaset but introduced in 1950, 26 years before the Elcaset.

I listened to some YT videos of the RCA Victor...thought it sounded really good.

Like you said..a 7 1/2 ips chrome cassette recorder would be nice too
The AKAI 1212s did something similar. Not much of a market for them, however.
