Anyone ever used the TEAC AD-800 cassette deck + CDR?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We've got a whole lot of aging cassettes that really ought to be ripped to digital, and I no longer have a deck. Has anyone used the TEAC AD-800 product? It's current, from a reputable maker with [at least historical] cred in pro audio, and it would actually solve exactly my problem all on its own: the built in CDR burner makes it a one-stop shop for the ripping process.

It's a little pricey at $200 and up, but it's gotten very hard to find *any* cassette players of any build quality whatsoever.

So... any thoughts from the field?

Guessing you're not still considering this, since it's been quite awhile since your post but thought I'd respond for anyone interested. I recently purchased this unit. It works great for transferring cassettes & vinyl (with line-in) to MP3. The CD player, however, is trouble. It is only a player, it does not record to CD. It will not play any of my CD-Rs (ones I've burned). Store bought CDs play fine but the majority of my CD collection are ones I've burned (on various computers & various brand CDs so it's definitely a problem with this unit). The unit is new, so it's not a problem of a worn laser or anything like that. Still debating about whether I'm going to keep it, only because if I do return it, I've got to fork over shipping for the return.
