How could an outdated, inferior audio technology like the cassette possibly make a comeback? Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy helped blast the lowly mix tape back onto the music scene in 2014 when they released the soundtrack on an actual tape. Scott Robenalt, owner of Asylum Records says cassettes were already a hot seller in his store, even before the hit movie. Jared Cotter met up with Scott to find out why this format is so popular again.

1.  Nostalgic, Analog Sound

Most of the time digital compacts the music so much that you're never going to be able to hear the original sound which you get on a tape or a record.

2.  Cassettes & Players Available Everywhere

You can get cassette players on Amazon, ebay, Urban Outfitters and of course at your local record store!

3.  Convert Your Tapes to Digital

The AGPtek tape player easily converts all of those old mix tapes to a smartphone friendly format with free software for both Mac and Windows.
