Oh, dear... now you have me thinking... I have that nifty little Symmetricom X72 rubidium oscillator... I have a rather old and frumpy cassette player... I have the technology... I can rebuild it... rubidium locked CD players are just so last year... rubidium locked turn tables are just so last week... I'm gonna be the first kid on the block with a rubidium locked cassette player (patent pending). And remember, rubidium oscillators have that number one audiosnobio requirement of the glowing vacuum tubey thingie. Unfortunately no little window to watch it flicker and glow. But trust me... it's in there.
I am taking initial orders now. Deposit (non-refundable) of $100,000 or one active H-maser. Final price to be determined (if you have to ask, your sorry tin ears can't afford it). For maximum organic audio enjoyment it will require my DCC (double cotton covered) audio patch cables with the 25 karat pure unobtainium-235 RCA plugs. A steal at $50,000 per meter.
