Goldstar HR - 1986 - US
Mimicking the contemporary TDK AD, these US only Type I are a really good cassette.
These are Goldstar's best Type I tape. Super-Ferric type I tape.
Note: Only 5 left, 2 available now. Super-Ferric performance for so little... Too rare in the North American market. Got 9 of these once (October 2021, Thanks Mike! Toronto), never seen them before and don't think I'll come across these ever again.
GoldStar was a South Korean electronics company established in 1958. The corporate name was changed to LG Electronics and LG Cable on February 28, 1995, after merging with Lucky Chemical. LG Cable was spun off from LG Electronics and changed its name to LS Cable in 2005.
GoldStar manufactured a wide variety of products, including radios, televisions, air conditioners, MSX home computers, videocassette recorders, video and audio cassette tapes, microwave ovens, electronic typewriters, integrated circuits, escalators, elevators, dehumidifiers, and tractors. GoldStar televisions became a commonly sold brand of consumer television sets in the United States in the 1980s.
GoldStar Precision was a division manufacturing electronic test equipment such as multi-meters and oscilloscopes and industrial electronics. The name was changed to LG Precision with the merger with many of the same products and model numbers being produced but with new branding. The measuring device division was acquired by EZ Digital in 1999, again with identical or similar model numbers. The industrial products continue under the company name LIG Nex1.
