    Default unclear spots in a video

    Hello,

    Could you please help me to make out what the guy says in these sentences:

    1. We have, for example, cassettes and A-tracks ......., most record stores haven't had for ten years or more.
    2. But mostly it's music. ......... huge part of what we do because we buy collections all over the country and all over the Bay area and California.
    3. But our core customers who care the most about music, ultimately will come in here and get a hard copy 'cause it sounds so much better. ........... of an artist's work.
    4. That's our fourth (I am not sure) store. It is gonna be hopefully the last store (I'm not sure) or online store.

    Here is a link: How One Neighborhood Music Store Plays On | BNET

    Thank you very much indeed for the time and help.

    2. But mostly it's old music. Vintage is a huge part of what we do ...
    3. ... it sounds so much better. ..and it's like a real print (?)......... of an artist's work.
    4. It is gonna be hopefully the our last store ...
    That's the best I can do.

    Hello fivejedjon,

    Thank you a lot. You have made my day. I am about to start a new kind of activities with my students. There is a very interesting site which allows you to upload a video, then transcribe it and, finally, translate it into many languages, in my case it is Russian or Ukrainian. You can watch your subtitles running across the screen simultaneously with English ones. As I am reading translation practice this semester, it might prove useful for both me and my students.

    Best wishes,

    I hear

    cassettes and A-tracks, still, when most record stores haven't had those for ten years or more.
