This only records media to tape.4/1/2008
I was looking for a boom box of the old fashioned kind so I could make a quick recording of some songs for a contest. Tape recorder? Unfortunately I made an assumption I would be able to record my voice, and it will only record from the MP3/CD or radio. Looks nice, tho. Bummer.
Great Product - Definite buy.9/23/2007
First bought one of these a couple of years ago to play my mp3 disks and save wear on the computer. It handled the disks so well, I bought another for a relative who hates technology. She loves the old radio shows, and I knew this would be just the thing for her. Now I can just make an mp3 disk with them, and she can play it just like a CD. Will play mp3’s as low as 16kbps, and doesn’t mind if you mix different bit rates. If you have someone that doesn’t like technology that you want to share mp3’s with, this is the player for you.
