Maxwell,

Look for silent cassettes instead. Super-8 Kodachrome 40 film, with or without sound, is 'done' as of December of 2010, there being no more processing from Dwayne's in Kansas, the last lab in the world to handle them.

Unless you want a last run for the memories and you decide to get some K40 sound cassettes on EBay (with all that that implies) I'd say just get some nice newer stock and run silent. It's the best we can do now.
It's not a matter of top-end sound, just the sad fact that this fine little format no longer can offer the nice, compact in-cassette sync-sound anymore.
