Definition

  1. A consumer audio format with magnetic tape held within a plastic carrier.
  2. A small portable machine for both playing back and recording onto compact cassettes.

Similar to the reel–to-reel tape recorder but more compact, cassettes used magnetically coated plastic tape that passed through either a tape head for playback or a magnetic recording head for recording.
