I use it to preserve tape audio and clean it up so as to make CD back-ups.

It's great, because it is the only one I've found that actually works as promised.

If you push the stop button after recording a track, you will record an artifact click, but if you click "NEXT" on the software window to end the recording of a track, there will be no artifact click sound. Then you can push the device stop button.

It would be nice if you would make a cassette tape device such as this one, but that would be fit in a front panel slot on the computer and interface with an internal USB port.

IT WORKS, MP3s are good enough quality for player while you're running or other exercise.
It's a slow process, not hard at all, but SLOW.
Need much spare time if you have many tapes.

    You should susbend the follow up on products during the Christmas season. My wife bought me this as a gift and I was asked to review it before Christams ruining the surprise elenent of the gift. I would suggest anything purchased after Nov. 1st should not be reviewed until January.

        The unit made a noise when running the cassette. The noise was more pronounced when the unit was stood up. This noise was transferred to the MP3 file. I returned the unit.

        Comments about Ion Audio, LLC. Ion Audio TAPE EXPRESS PLUS- USB Portable Cassette Tape to MP3 Conversion Player:

        Wanted to capture self-made cassette tapes from 30+ years ago onto digital formats for preservation. Played these tapes okay; the age of the tapes made for some variations in pitch during playback but for the most part the capture worked as expected. Am not an iTunes fan, but was able to deal with it. The auto-track recognition was pretty good and only the very noisy transitions seemed to fake it out. A cost effective way to convert tapes to digital format.
