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.

I think you may have a hard time finding anyone here who has firsthand experience with this product. That said, I looked at it and now I'm sort of interested in it.

I partially agree with hlloyge about the price. I would also add that if you found all of its features useful it could well be worth it. The price on Amazon (US) seems a little high. (Unfortunately I could not find one on Amazon.de, which would ship to you for free.) Four people have reviewed it there FWIW. If I had the extra money burning a hole in my pocket, I'd be willing to gamble on it. It sure looks like a decent product.

Sorry I can not be more helpful to you, but I would also be interested it others could provide further insight.
