    I had another stereo like this one that I had used to transfer tapes and albums to CD, but it stopped working (disk drawer stuck). I needed a replacement to continue these projects and this was the selection I finally settled on. The record player works just fine. The speakers may not be quite as nice as my previous model, but they are acceptable. The difference is how you transfer the tapes/albums. I'm not sure if the description was completely clear or not (I had looked at SEVERAL choices before deciding), but I thought that this model also recorded directly to a CD like my old model. It does not. You have to run a cable (included) to your computer and record a file to it. The software is included. It's a little trickier than I would prefer, but usable. It is also time consuming to split the record side A or B files into individual tracks, but I hope to figure out the best way to do it soon. Overall, this is a decent piece of equipment. It was priced well which is why I went with it in the first place. I just wish my older, simpler model was still functioning.

    I bought this item for the purpose of downloading my vinyl records to my computer and then to my MP3 player. It will do this but the instructions are for older operating systems and it is not clear as to how to proceed. I have Microsoft 10. It included a cd that is supposed to allow this process but it acted like it was blank. One has to go to the website of Audacity to get the screen that allows one to perform this task. It would be nice if someone would show me how to do it but one needs to be a recording engineer to understand the names of the buttons and procedures. I had to call to find out what to ask for when I went on line and the person gave me a link to go right to it. I did manage to transfer one side of an LP to my computer but had a lot of trouble with the other side and finally gave up. Someday I may try again. The tape player seems slightly larger than the cassette and is difficult to load. Do not force it! Other than that, it is an impressive player. The sound is good, better than I expected! I use it mostly as a dock to play my MP3 player.

    Beautiful Turntable

    Absolutely love this unit! I could do without the cassette player, but so far everything on it works great! Drawbacks though is the radio, it's a bit more touchy than my older unit so getting my local stations is proving difficult. A wise decision on the manufacturer's part by making this an all in one unit. The radio, cd player, cassette for those who still have some, and the aux port make it useful to vinyl lovers. My housemates have used this often, even though I'm the only one with records. The old style theme is wonderful as well - I would have liked to have one with an old phonograph horn but this is a nice compromise between the modern and the antique. Overall this player is a delightful addition to our "culture corner", along side the piano, the bookshelf and the hotel chair.

    We purchased the "Grace Digital - Victoria Tunewriter III USB Recordable Turntable" in Oak after a long search. It was a Christmas present for my mother-in-law who loves her CDs and LP's. Unfortunately the darn thing stopped playing CDs after about 3 weeks. So we called Best Buy and they said, sorry, you've only got 15 days to make a return. So we called the 800-number and got the same story. We requested to talk to a manager and that call was never returned. Bottom line, don't buy this unit and make sure you understand the return policy before you make your purchase .... anywhere. Completely unsatisfied!

    I purchased this system for our son as a present. I had read the reviews from other purchasers before buying. I have to agree with all of the positive comments. Sound quality is wonderful using headphones or the speakers with the system. He is thrilled. A friend of his came over for the evening and was also impressed; he may be getting this system as well. NOW, having said that-- we have just used the basic parts so far. I am anxious to see how old records are downloaded on to our computer; I have some 78s from my parents from the 50s that I would love to preserve and am hoping this system will do it. Fingers crossed!

    I have two complaints; it was advertised as being "brown"; the picture on the website showed it to be a light, reddish-brown, but it still would fit in with my other furniture. However, when I opened the box, the unit was a strong, red brick color, and doesn't really go with my furniture. I've made an adjustment to offset the color difference, mainly because I didn't want to return it. It's what I've been looking for. I believe that the picture on the internet should represent all aspects of the unit, including the color. It was also advertised as having an automatic return arm--it doesn't. You have to lift a small lever on the side of the arm to change the record. Again, not advertised well. I don't think I will purchase online from Best Buy again.

    Piece of Junk

    Albums play so so. 45's sound wavy like. CD's slide off the tray. I bought a brand new CD and it got stuck inside when it slide off the tray. I had to push the button 3 times to open/close in order to get the CD out and it came out all scratched. It is very poorly constructed and it doesn't work very well. It is basically a piece of junk. I returned it to BestBuy and bought a different brand unit for almost 1/2 the price and it works so much better. The CD's don't slide around on the tray and all the records play good.
