The Philips DCC machines are Digital versions of Compact Cassette. IE they can record digitally onto a special DCC tape whilst also maintaining backward compatibility with the popular Compact Cassette standard. By this I mean it would play back standard analogue cassettes but would not record onto them.
It was developed by Philips and Matsushita and introduced in late 1992.
It was a competitor to MiniDisc (MD) and Digital Audio Tape (DAT), but never became popular with the general public and therfore was consigned to the tech bin forever more.
We have a Philips DCC170 which is a portable device. The specifications are as follows :
- Studio Recording Quality from digital or analogue sources
