This audio cassette to MP3 converter from Hammacher Schlemmer makes converting your old analog tapes to digital files almost as easy as pressing “play”. The Best Audio Cassette to MP3 Converter guides you through the conversion with step-by-step instructions appearing on the screen of a connected PC or Mac running the included software. Users say the Best converter “produced the clearest digital recordings from analog tapes, without the feedback or static that garbled the sound of MP3 files created by lesser devices”.
You can also use the Best as a playback device by connecting it to some speakers or headphones. At only 3.5″ H x 4.5″ W x 1.25″ D, it’s even small enough to use as a portable device. It’s powered by two AA batteries, or you can connect it to a USB power source with the included cable. The Best Audio Cassette to MP3 Converter is $49.95 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
