Excerpt: I purchased this mostly to convert home-made cassette tapes, recorded by me at live jam sessions. Pros: it's REALLY easy to use; the machine itself, and the EZ convert software (more user friendly than Audacity). Cons: One tape that I tried to convert appeared to have gotten stretched.
Summary: The software is tricky. I wasted several cds before I got it to work properly. The listing says that it comes with a built-in cd burner. It does not. After discussing this issue with customer service they said to send it back and they would replace it with the proper unit.
Excerpt: Vinyl recording works great. When I tried recording a cassette, it seems that it did not have enough power to run the cassette at full speed. Beginning of the cassette was fine. 15 minutes in, the speed slowed down noticeably.
Excerpt: We needed a tape deck to transfer some audio and found this. It is pretty simple to set up. We use Audacity instead of the software provided. It is light, compact and straight forward. Worth the money.
Excerpt: My 20 yr old daughter has "discovered vinyl". Then, she discovered that I still had a fairly good stack of albums. But, no way to play them. So, for Christmas, I decided to look into a turntable for her. Since I figure this is a "phase she's going through", I didn't want to spend too much money.
Pros: And It Plays Tapes, Very inexpensive, Very portable
Excerpt: I got this for my mother who is more tech savvy than she admits. Nice all in one vinyl/cassette player/audio interface, and inexpensive as well. Sound is clear and detailed so it's digital audio converter doesn't suck, at least.
Summary: This product was misrepresented on the Walmart website and my review of this product reflects what I was expecting, NOT the quality of the product itself. That I cannot judge. It did not contain a built-in CD burner, nor did it play 78 rpm as the Walmart description indicated.
