Digital Compact Cassette is Philips' backwards compatible digital cassette format. In addition to playing and recording Digital Compact Cassettes, DCC recorders also play standard analogue cassettes. Hence the term backwards compatible. DCC tapes work to 16-bit 44.1kHz sampling. It also features Philips' PASC data reduction system. PASC selectively discards signals thought to be below the threshold of audibility. Soft signals audible in isolation may be masked by louder signals. In such circumstances PASC eliminates the masked signals.
