There were not many manufacturers who made portable 8 track players, but still a few did. And they are quite popular under collectors these days. They're cool looking, don't take up much space, and hey, you can show your friends your fantastic retro audio gear while you meet in the park.

Eight track home players were introduced in 1966 that allowed consumers to share tapes between their homes and portable systems, and the so called "Boombox" type portable 8 track players like the Panasonic Rs-836A were also popular.

Here are a few brands that made portable players for 8 track cassettes:

  • Sears
  • General Electric
  • Panasonic (Dynamite 8, RQ-830S, RS-833S, etc.)
  • Ross
  • Lloyds
  • Juliette
  • RCA
  • Sano
