Hello,

I'd be interested in a very good stuff to digitalise vynils and tape:
- A good tape deck with a line out
- A good phono preamp.

I saw this product: http://tascam.com/product/cc-222slmkii/
I'm not sure if I would use the CD burner or only line out to computer (with Asus Xonar Essence STX).

Do some people have experience with it ? Any down sides/comparisons to mention ?

Also, I see that several devices of that brand have "MKII" or "MKsomething" in their name. What does it refer to exactly ? I did not get it yet, I though it could be about the phono preamp.


Thank you for your info.

Yes, it's hard to find real info/testings about tape decks, but I heard the Tascam is one of the best brands regarding tape deck. And the choice in tape decks with a good reputation is very limited now.
I know that some people on this board use Tascam phono preamps and I think they have a good reputation too. I'm just that hoping the one they included here is a not a reduced quality device juste because it's embedded (at in turntables).
I'm not sure I'll use the CD Burner but it's still a plus to have it.

It think the price on amazon (before shipping to Belgium) "only" 100~150 $ (I'd say 80~120 €) higher than buying separated quality stuff (but yet it seems that this brand is one of the best), but if it solves the two problems at once and has a high quality level, it may be worth it to me.
