Audio Magnetics XHE 90 - Type I - 1978

A series released for the Canadian market (maybe US as well?).

XHE released type I, II and IV tapes and were accepted as good quality cassette tapes. They also had a fairly unique packaging appeal, making them a favorite for nostalgic and collectible reasons. This tape is rarely offered.

XHE stands for Extra High Energy suggesting a better than typical type I tape by Audio Magnetics. They high-lite their exclusive "Magnalinc TM" oxide results in extremely flat response and exceptional "headroom" characteristics critical for live recording applications. The tape also features a "jam-proof" mechanism that employs unique "Paraflo TM" guides for faultless transport.

Note: One available! The one you see in the pictures is the last one being offered. Opened up to take pictures. Never used and original wrapper is still in place (opened only at one end). LAST ONE!

Notice the label shows very well how old this tape is! The glue has lost some of its integrity although it still binds perfectly. The imperfection is on the look of the label itself, giving it this "granite-like" finish appearance. The shell is actually of excellent quality.

Made in... ??? Switzerland? It's a Swiss company!
