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.

Except the fact that it's expensive, I'm rather interested in comments about its quality as "tape deck" and "phono preamp".

And for example, if I had to buy a better/equivalent deck tape and a better/equivalent phono preamp seperatly, which ones would be advised ?

The tape deck doesn't have Dolby-C (or Dolby-S), and appears to have no way of adjusting the azimuth (not even a little hole for a screw driver, never mind a proper control), so in that respect it's not ideal for making one-off transfers.

Cheers,
David.
