Recording Records to CDs

Has anyone used one of those new record player and cassette players that record your old records and tapes onto CDs for the computer? What's the sound quality? Easy to use? Suggestions? Warnings?

I read a review in the newspaper the other day on these things. The bottom line was quality wasn't as good as the item it was taped from. Some brands were a bit better than others. So if you don't mind a little distortion in the music try it out. What you fine is ok, someone else will find it not ok.

You might try downloading Audacity first and use your present system to record to cds. Audacity is free and pretty easy to use. You plug straight from your component system or record player into your computer sound jacks. Audacity will convert the music to mp3 and then you just burn them onto your cd.

My husband has a program called Spin It Again. It does a pretty good job of transferring from old records and cassette tapes to CD. It is simple to use, and he bought an old stereo record player that plays 33 1/3 , 78, and 45 speeds. He just hooks his stereo to the computer, and it converts and burns them to CD's

You can get a free trial before you buy. It filters out the static sounds from the old records pretty well. I don't know what he paid for his program, but the current version is about $35.00 after the free trial. He buys old records at yard sales and thrift shops and puts them on CD's and then sells the records at the flea market.
