We’ve had 35mm slide to digital, VHS to DVD, and now it’s time for another vinyl to CD converter – yes, we love our analog to digital converters! This is another turntable to CD converter, similar to the ION iProfile turntable we reviewed last year, – the Crosley Radio Memory Master II (product code CR2413A-BK).
This gizmo can convert any vinyl or cassette knocking around your house to CD. Simply pop in your cassette/vinyl and a blank CD in the drive and it will do all the work for you. This eliminates the need for messy wires snaking to your computer. If you do want a digital copy of the files though, a USB hookup is included and you can make use of the included editing software.
Pricing isn’t cheap at $360, compared to the ION iProfile’s $150 tag. For the extra $210 though you’re also getting the ability to digitalize your cassettes, and the added convenience of being a turnkey system without need of a computer. Whether that makes it worth it or not is your call.
