I purchased the Crosley LP-to-CD from Brookstone and after I got it home I was astonished to discover how cheap a product costing several hundred dollars could be. The turntable is awful. If you bought a turntable for $25 you would expect it to be better than this. The tone arm is not properly balanced and worst of all the speed is not consistent and is not adjustbale. This product is virtually worthless for converting LP's to CD's if you have any senstivity to sound quality. Stay away from this!

I just received this item yesterday, and already found it does not work. The sound is poor, and when I tried to record a cd from a vinyl album, I found it did not work AT ALL! It records the first few seconds of the song, then skips all over the place. Very expensive piece of junk which will cost you an arm and a leg to return to whomever you buy it from!!!!!!!! (If they even take it back)

I bought it because I have a lot of vinyl that I want to put onto cd and into iTunes, but it's worthless for that. A BIG WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!!!!!!

Does not even deserve one star.

We bought this because we wanted to be able to put our old records onto discs. It does this very well. It also will put cassettes onto discs, but we haven't tried that yet. It plays records, cassettes, discs, and radio also. It's a good machine with one exception: the sound quality of its speakers is quite poor. However, by turning off its sound and routing it through our own speakers, it sounds fine. Only other quibble is that the remote isn't so easy or intuitive to use, takes some learning to figure out. Overall, we are really glad we bought this item and it is doing just what we needed.

It played okay. Definitely not going to stand up to the new stereo systems. The recording part of it didn't work at all. We are sending it back. A big disappointment

We bought the Crosley Songwriter in October of last year at Linens 'n Things.The remote didn't work, but Customer Service at Crosley sent a new one, which worked fine.

As a fourth-grade teacher, I have many cassettes that I want to record onto CDs (stories from the reading series, old books-on-tape), so I used it to copy these over. All seven of the CDs I made worked wonderfully. Transferring albums was equally easy, although I only did one. In both cases, the most difficult part was being present to press the button that manually splits tracks.

After a month of use, however, the CD player would only play part of a CD--three songs--and then it would quit, locking up the unit. Powering off and back on freed up the unit, but didn't solve the problem. We have since returned the Songwriter to Linens 'n Things for a full refund. This is a great idea in an attractive package that just doesn't work.

Sounds great when you listen to the radio, cassette, or CD player, but sounds AWFUL when you play a vinyl record. For a product that is marketed as a great way to transfer all of your old LP's to CD, we were very disappointed in the inferior quality of the turntable. Recording was easy, perfect for someone not computer-savvy like my husband. Turned out to be a BIG disappointment on Christmas morning. Especially for $400! A kid's toy sounds better. We had to send it back.

The first item I received was defective and I was unable to use it. I returned it to the manufacturer at my expense plus a $19.95 return charge and they sent me a new one. I tried to record from 33-1/3rd records to a CD. The sound quality semed distorted as if the music was being played

slightly slower than it should be. I contacted the mfg. again and they paid the freight to return the second item to their factory. I asked to receive a credit for the purchase amount--they refused because they want to send me another unit I don't want. I have contacted Montana Consumer Affairs in the meantime. Also, Focus Camera, that shipped the original item refused to credit me as well.

It worked great at first, then the turntable started playing slow. Same thing for the cassette player. It worked great the first time. Now it is all muffled, if it plays at all. Sometimes when you try to record the machine shuts off. I whole heartedly do NOT recommend this item.
