Excerpt: so my sister go this record player for her birthday from her boyfriend a year or two ago and and let me just say that it skips uncontrollably and you cant even listen to it too loud or else its like a screeching sound. horrible turntable, 10/10 would not recommend
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.
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.
Excerpt: Simplicity is the word. Almost too simple. Smallest turntable in the world. It works well.. works even better considering the price. I was up and running within 10 minutes. Mediocre software and a glitch in the setup or it would be 5 star.
Excerpt: I have some old LP albums I have wanted to upgrade to CD since about 12 years ago. I also have some tapes of interviews with my mom, aunts and uncles who are all deceased now. It's great to have made them digital.
Excerpt: If you are looking for an affordable device to quickly transfer some cassettes and vinyl records to digital format - than this machine works great.
My view is based on only using this machine for less than a month.
