Summary: I bought this piece of junk a year ago. I ended up giving it to a friend,who ended up throwing it in the garbage. 1. The cassette player always played the tape faster than what it should have. Always sounded like I was like I was listening to the chipmunks. 2.
Summary: The first machine that arrived was visibly used and I purchased a new one. The main reason I purchased the machine was to record to CD from my collection of vinyl records. The first attempt to record - it failed! I tried again and the same thing.
Summary: This turntable and most if not all the Crosley's turntables are overpriced for what it gives you. First off, the sound quality is not very good and the tone arm does not have a weight control to prevent the stylus from severely damaging your ablums if accidently kicked or knocked.

Summary: The Crosley Radio CR248 Songwriter CD recorder is great when it works. However, after 2 weeks, I had to return it for repairs. The tape cassette did not work and I couldn't record anything onto the CD. It is now at the shop.
Summary: I bought this item because I have serious amounts of vinyl and old cassettes I wanted to digitize. Sad to say, I started with the cassettes. For that purpose, this device excels. I digitized about 100 old (mostly spoken-word) cassettes.
Summary: I was very disappointed with the whole experience. Firstly, the machine never worked and also the accompanying directions and brochure was most inadequate and very poorly written.Furthermore, it took great effort and persistence to finally return the songwriter for another machine.I hope my next...
