I purchased this unit to convert some very special old cassette tapes to MP3. I had tried 2 other units from other manufacturers - both were very cheaply made and didn't work at all. This one did the job! It is solidly built and very easy to use. Just insert a USB stick, press record and run your cassette. You can also hear what is being recorded as there is a speaker on the side and a headphone jack. I had a small issue with the first unit I purchased and when I contacted Boytone, they were fantastic. There were geographic logistics to work around and they supported me the whole way. Prompt, courteous emails and they resolved the issue to my satisfaction. I'm now back to converting literally 100s of cassettes so that I can enjoy them again.

My first turntable in 30 years. Very nice design and easy to set up. 3 things I did not like...1) the sound (built in speakers) is very limited as to volume, if you want it loud I don't recommend this turntable I would suggest going full component stereo system. 2) I did not like the arm. It does not return at the end of the record. It just stops and sits on the record and you have to lift it and manually swing it over to the cradle. I don't like this, if the player gets bumped and you forgot to lift the arm I see scratches in the album's future. 3) the radio antenna is pretty weak. Overall it looks nice and plays well and the sound is very rich (vinyl sounds so much better than cds and digital media anyway). When this turntable goes

This was purchased as a birthday gift for my boyfriend, to replace a large vintage multi-component set up that was no longer working well. After spending significant time looking at options/price/size/capability this was, in my opinion, the best value. Weu2019ve not been let down! Set up was simple, the sound is great considering itu2019s size, and the additional cassette/remote/other options have been icing on the cake.
This is the perfect option for casual-regular vinyl listeners looking for a space friendly set up without much additional sacrifice!!

Ok I got it. it's small..I thought there was a fast forward or reverse for the Casette in the front but turns out it's only a fast forward button on the side near the cassette entrance.Played some.old albums...it's very cool...lots of scratching probably because they are old albums 1960-70 ish.Need to hook up some nice speakers ..there is no equalizer so you get a very basic sound.

hard to believe but small and powerful gadget. I use like an amplifier to my desktop and connect additional speakers. For this price, turntable, cassette, AM/FM radio and connectivity to support audio computer? Great, thank you

Have only used the cassette recording feature so far to rip old cassettes to MP3. Does one side at a time in a single file. Only ate one tape. Used Audacity and mp3splt to split the recordings into individual song files. Decent quality at 128kbps.

very nice look...the arm did not work properly. It kept pushing back and made the record skip. Returned the item.

Only a good turntable for beginners, or people with no value of vinyl and ripping music to mp3.
There is 0 control over the functions for playing vinyl and the quality of sound, most knobs are just useless in everyday use.
For price, great for your teen.
