Welcome to the Philips DCC (Digital Compact Cassette) Homepage..

So.. what is all this DCC nonsense on this page?? First of all.. it's not nonsense. It's pure hi-tech in the almost finest tones an artist or a musiclover always wanted since the CD (Compact Disc) revolution hitted the road.. in some cases it smashes the DAT (Digital Audio Tape) on the "fingers" but Philips (the inventor of DCC) flopped the marketing of the DCC and so was that story ended. Almost. Just Almost.

In the Netherlands it still lives.. many stores still sells the players as both pre-recorded tapes as blank tapes! But that's not all, folks! I searched the web and thanks to many other DCC-lovers we (as in I ;) have collected information where to get DCC players, blank tapes and pre-recorded tapes. Some can be ordered via Internet (!), some you can only get "on the place". But we covers Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, UK and USA. If you know about a company who has DCC.. don't hesitate to tell us!

Sincerely, Peter Frank
