I received as a gift. Would not have purchased it for my self.
Sound
Excellent
Features
Needs to include headphones and a USB port for a flash drive.
Ease of Use
From LP to CD It's fine if you don't want any track names. If you do, you can't get them.
Quality
Don't think you would want to travel with it. Impressive looking. Can not comment on how many LP you will be able to process with it.
Value
Needs to be more flexible for the price.
Manufacturer Support
Company's website leaves much to be desired. The unit creates CD easily, but the only choice with your PC is to save the tracks into the Itunes library, which I do not want to do. I have seen all the ads about the "download of Gracenote's MusicId software, but it was not in the software that I received, and I don't know how to get it. Track naming is very time consuming along with getting cover Art. I would like the product much more if I could store files onto a hard drive with the track data and cover art retrieved automatically.
