|Digital Compact Cassettes||£30 / DCC tape|
To ensure the best accuracy of sound from your DCC recordings, an all-digital signal path is employed. If your recordings were made at 48kHz and you wish to retain this higher sampling rate, just let us know, and we will return your transfer as a higher resolution data file on DVD, memory stick or file upload.
The Digital Compact Cassette (DCC) format was introduced in 1992 jointly by Philips and Matsushita and was marketed as the potential successor to the well-established analogue Compact Cassette.
Like its analogue predecessor, DCC is based on the principle of recording sound onto magnetic tape using a stationary record / playback head rather than a rotary head (helical scan system) as found in video and DAT recorders. Like Sony’s MiniDisc and the DAT format, DCC failed to achieve its full potential – even though DCC players were designed with backward compatibility, such that they could play both analogue cassettes as well as the new digital type.
DCC to CD transfer is performed using a Philips DCC 730 18 bit recorder, before commencement of track separation, digital restoration (if required) and transfer to CD.
