Cassette deck for PC

The Korean company BTO (Beyond the Ordinary) have created an internal cassette deck player for PC, called Plusdeck. It can be used to play music but, if we're not mistaken also to store (small) files, just like in the old days. Of course, we are wondering if MSX emulators could support this tape deck, in a similar way to the MSX Game Reader, allowing you to use real MSX tapes on PC with emulators.

Alexey Podrezov created a useful project called CasLink, since the project uses the PC soundcard to connect to the cassette deck, and the PlusDeck the same interface, it is not going to be an impossible task. Is it worth spending the amouth of money just to play MSX tapes on your PC though?

The caslink project enables you to send files to your msx using the audiocard on your pc and the cassette port on your msx (pc->msx). I don't really see the connection, since allowing real tapes in emulators you need the other way around (msx->pc). If you would use it for pc->msx you could also buy a real tape recorder, and connect that directly to the msx. Also, the caslink projects seems a bit obsolete to me after the microwaver project, which does more or less the same, but uses compression.
