      Great dual deck

      Was very happy to get this to replace dad's Sony unit that got "fried" with a lightning strike. The first one I got had a motor malfunction but the service center at Pyle was quick and responsive and the awesome folks at Best Buy were quick to replace it with a fully functional unit that enables my mom to listen to dad's old barbershop quartet tapes. Now I need to work on turning them into cd's so we can listen to them in the car.

      Transfers tapes to digital easily

      We’ve got some old tapes that we’d enjoy listening to if available digitally so I purchased this cassette player to to that. It connects easily via a USB cable but has the RCA connectors if you’d like to go “old school”. The power of this player is a free download software called Audacity for recording what’s played on the cassette to the computer. iTunes completes the process to make the tape available as a CD. There are YouTube videos showing how to do this. Happy we got this.

      No Instructions Included to Digitize Music

      The instructions don't include information about transferring music from cassettes to a computer. To learn how, I had to go to the Pyle website and hunt around to learn that certain software must be downloaded, installed, and then navigated. I did all that and got several tapes converted before the A deck failed. Only the B deck functions now. Also, when I emailed Pyle about how to digitize music, they did not call me back. Will return and try another gizmo.

      Keeps you busy changing tapes.

      Nearly impossible to find a cassette deck these days. After my old machine of 30+ years quit working, I found this one. It has good sound, but I am really disappointed in it's performance. It plays one side of the tape and shuts off. My old machine had auto reverse (played both sides) and then continued to play the second tape in the dual side. Don't like having to continually change the tapes.

      Will need speakers and amp!

      Bought this to transfer cassettes to MP3. After I got it I realized I needed speakers and an amp. Best Buy does NOT have speakers compatible to this unit. Contacted Best Buy online and they recommended a set of speakers but after looking closely they would not connect to unit. I took unit back to Best Buy in Gastonia and they gave me the "run-around" because I had the unit more than 14 days. They finally credited my card The unit was worthless to me without speakers which Best Buy does NOT sell.

      This is an inexpensive cassette deck, therefore I knew not to expect great quality. However, I did expect the manual to have instructions on how to record from the deck to a computer. IT DOES NOT!!!!! They don't even have the instructions on the Pyle web-site!!! This is terrible. If I knew this, I would have bought a used deck on Craigslist. Either way, it is one of the only inexpensive decks being sold out there.

      Decent unit

      Works well enough but it feels cheap. The plastic doors for the cassettes feel very flimsy. I wish Best Buy would stock a higher end cassette player for those looking for sound quality. Many independent record labels are releasing new artists on tapes and I would love to listen to them on something higher quality. The Pyle unit is good for what it is intended to do and the price.

      Excellent transfer from cassette tape to digital

      I am using this deck to convert several cassette tapes to digital format for transfer to CDs. The USB output creates .mp3 files which I then convert to CD format with another program. Have achieved excellent results with a minimum of set-up time.
