Interesting. 

I bought a Schiit Modi multibit DAC that is delayed a bit due to component shortages, that I can use to better connect a Mac to my stereo system via USB 3. I’ve also acquired a couple of mid 90’s Sony Dolby S cassette decks off eBay, so that I can record off of Apple Music to create my own mix tapes, because I like the nostalgia of that.

Soon, there should be production of Type II cassettes in the U.S. using a new Cobalt formulation (that too has been delayed).

We are excited to bring this new tape to you. It is tangible proof of our commitment to the cassette industry. Watch for our new C756™ Cobalt Type II tape coming in January, 2021.” Now their stating May. 

I doubt that these are as high a quality as Maxell, et al, Type II cassettes from the 90’s, but that’s the best you will likely see of new production.
