1970's Japanese 8 Track machines


Recommended Posts

It's the 1970's and 8 Track cartridge systems are all the rage. In the U.S., The Panasonic RQ-830, AKA "TNT" is a hot item among the Tweens/Teens. In Japan, the TNT is sold as the RQ-8. "Techmoan" takes a look at this endless loop cartridge tech and notes that this format led to Karaoke, which is why he could find "new old stock" at Japanese tech auction sites. What else did the UK's tech boffin find out about National's portable 8 track player? Press PLAY to hear a very slow version of Bill Conti's "Rocky" theme...
