Summary: This item was purchased as a gift for a friend / co-worker who was retiring. Had a lot of old, one-of-a-kind albums, and we thought this would be the perfect gift for him. I was concerned because of poor reviews, but found out that the ones manufactured now (since April 2007) are considered 'second...
Summary: This item works well right out of the box. I bought it to move my album & cassette collections to cd. Very easy to use. The one problem is that if you want each song to be a seperate track, you have to sit and manually close each track. It is very time consuming!
Summary: Some of the other reviewers of this product were less than happy with the quality of the product, or the sound of phonograph records or other media formats. Well, yeah, it doesn't sound all that great compared with other systems...but the buyer should already have something better for listening.
Summary: This product does a great job of converting records and cassette tapes to cds. Since i am not an audiophile, I don't mind the pops and so forth that show up in th cd. after all, isn't that how albums used to sound?! The touch of a few buttons and you have a cd. I love it!
Summary: We bought this because we wanted to be able to put our old records onto discs. It does this very well. It also will put cassettes onto discs, but we haven't tried that yet. It plays records, cassettes, discs, and radio also.
