I dislike the audio quality of tapes, but I like the way tapes are used.
Since the audio quality isn't that good, the quality of the compositions
is more important. Since copying, forwarding and rewinding is time
consuming, it's another way to record and to listen to a tape, than when
using modern medias.

I still own a demagnetiser and crappy radio-cassette-recorders, but no
high quality cassette recorder, it's a pity, but maintaining the last
good recorders became impossible for me. I guess there is no future for
music tapes. As already mentioned, the German company just copies radio
dramas, no music.

No DRM :).

Less good technology, but much better ethical background.

I would prefer a good (USB) tape recorder over a CD burner :), assumed
anybody would still own a tape recorder to play the tapes ;).
