Summary: I ordered the Crosley Songwriter CD Recorder for my mom for Mother's Day. She has about a million records that we wanted to put on CDs. And I've got to say that over the last week, I've recorded about 25 CDs (and also a few cassette tapes), and absolutely love this unit!
Summary: Does a great job of converting vinyl to CD - the sound reproduction is excellent. The CD created sounds just like the original. The ability to play and convert records of all speeds is wonderful as we have an extensive collection going back to the 40s. Easy to use too.
Summary: We bought this because we wanted to be able to put our old records onto CDs and it does this very well. We were very pleased with the sound from the speakers and have this unit sitting in our living room. We listen to the LPs with our friends all the time.
Summary: I bought this for my husband for Christmas, my husband has a huge record collections, he has been busy recording them to cd. The first one we received had a defect, but when I called the company they were so helpfull, and within two day's we had a new one, they even took care of the shipping charge...
Summary: This is a great product. I do not understand all of the negative reviews being left here. I got this first and foremost because I wanted a record player. I thought the added feature of transferring an occasional record or tape to compact disc was a great extra feature.
Summary: Very nice cabinet, good quality sound from both the unit and the recorded CD. Easy to use and record. One problem with the recorded CD music format is that it is unrecognizable if one wants to make other CD's. It must be converted to say Mp3 or others and requires additional computer software.
Summary: The Crosley CR248 Songwriter CD Recorder is an excellent value. It is very easy to operate and use. I have many old records (78's, 33 1/3's and 45's)and cassette tapes and this machine is exactly what I needed to perserve my collection.
Summary: I was at a loss as to what to do with our extensive record and cassette collections. I knew that I wanted to put everything on CD, but was unsure as to how to do it until I discovered the Crosley Songwriter. The unit is so easy to use and produces a quality CD.
Summary: I purchased one of these mechines for the express reason to re-record LP's and cassettes to CD foremat. I have a large collection and I do not want to lose it. There has been no problem with this mechine. The sound is exactly like the source being recorded.
