This tape player combined the newest audio format with the spaciest design. Eight-track tape became popular in the mid-1970s; unlike vinyl records, eight-tracks wouldn't skip and could be played in moving cars. This Weltron 2001 eight-track tape player was well-named: its design evokes the 1968 film "2001: A Space Odyssey," and other visions of our future in space.
