Philips CD One - 1997 - EU

Whilst many brands went the OEM route towards the end, especially using SKC and Saehan, Philips didn't. These could be some of the last European tapes ever made and looking at the hubs I'd hazard Philips-DuPont Media was still making them

These do need NR, and negative bias, but if you just want a cassette to use with gay abandon, in your walkmans, in your car, then there's no real need to spend more...unless you want to.

About Philips:

Koninklijke Philips N.V. (Philips, stylized as PHILIPS) is a Dutch multinational technology company headquartered in Amsterdam currently focused in the area of healthcare. It was founded in Eindhoven in 1891, by Gerard Philips and his father Frederik. It was once one of the largest electronic conglomerates in the world and currently employs around 105,000 people across 60 countries.[1]

Philips is organized into three main divisions: Philips Consumer Lifestyle (formerly Philips Consumer Electronics and Philips Domestic Appliances and Personal Care), Philips Healthcare (formerly Philips Medical Systems) and Signify N.V. (known as Philips Lighting prior to 2018).[2] As of 2012, Philips was the largest manufacturer of lighting in the world measured by applicable revenues.[3] In 2013, the company announced the sale of the bulk of its remaining consumer electronics to Japan's Funai Electric Co,[4] but in October 2013, the deal to Funai Electric Co was broken off and the consumer electronics operations remain under Philips. Philips said it would seek damages for breach of contract in the US$200-million sale.[5] In April 2016, the International Court of Arbitration ruled in favour of Philips, awarding compensation of 135 million in the process.[6]

Philips has a primary listing on the Euronext Amsterdam stock exchange and is a component of the Euro Stoxx 50 stock market index.[7] It has a secondary listing on the New York Stock Exchange.

The Compact Audio Cassette (CAC) or Musicassette (MC), also commonly called the cassette tape or simply tape or cassette, is an analog magnetic tape recording format for audio recording and playback. Released by Philips in 1962,[2] it has been developed in HasseltBelgium. Compact cassettes come in two forms, either already containing content as a prerecorded cassette, or as a fully recordable "blank" cassette. Both forms are reversible by the user.[3]
