Excerpt: My old cassette deck had ceased to function, so this one just fits the bill. Although I long ago switched most of my listening to CD's and mp3's, I still own many cassettes from the old days, and they sound very good on this machine. The unit was easy to install and is easy to use.
Excerpt: Casual listening transferring tapes to CD on computer. Easy to operate and set up to stereo input/output. The ez converter was easy to load on the computer, paired with iTunes for burning to cd's. Cons: the tape player needs a light so you can see the amount of tape left.
Excerpt: Let's face it. It's not a Nakamuchi. Not even close. The transports are rather flimsy but it does what it's supposed to. The sound Quality is not great but at least the heads are new. With the usb it works well to archive old tapes. Looking for a budget solution. Give it a try.
Excerpt: Bought this to convert a library of cassettes to digital format. Product is ok but you can't expect Nakkamici quality for $90. This is replacing a 32 year old well made Akai deck which I can no longer get parts for and fix.
Excerpt: I have been converting cassettes to MP3's and it has been laborious at best, until I got this ION device. It has made the transition from tape to hard drive smooth. My only wish would be a better software package, but it will do.
Summary: I have had this product for several months now. Works, but has kinks. Not a bad buy. I can covert cassettes to cds, recordings from others devices, and formats to cd as well. Thinking about adding a 20 band equalizer to system to adjust sound. Process may be a little time consuming but fun.
Excerpt: This unit works great. It was easy to set up and use. It has made transferring music from my old cassettes to mp3's on my computer fun. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for something such as this.
