The system is finished in black with a handsome woodgrain texture. Level meters and other CD feedback is visible from the system's backlit LCD. Please note that the GF-350 records only with CDs designated as "music" or "digital audio" (also CD-DA); computer-grade data CD-Rs are incompatible.
The GF-350 also offers features like automatic or manual track increment options (with 2 different level thresholds to choose from), manual record-level control, and an auxiliary set of RCA stereo analog audio inputs for recording from external sources like cassette, reel-to-reel tape, or even another CD player or MP3 player. Playback features include shuffle play, repeat play (1/all), and 32-track programming.
Tune in your favorite swing or big-band station on the rotary analog AM/FM tuner. The turntable supports 33-1/3, 45, or 78 rpm records, so you can play your entire collection--it even comes with a handy center-hole adapter for your 7-inch/45 rpm singles. A remote lets you operate everything from the comfort of your easy chair (but remember, you still have to get up to flip the records!).
What's in the Box
GF-350 system, 7-inch record adapter, a remote control, remote batteries, a user's manual, and warranty information.

On the plus side, it's great looking and very easy to use. Put in an Audio CDR or Audio CDRW (it won't take blank computer discs), adjust the recording volume, push a button and voila... you have a CDR of your old favorite record album or cassette. It can automatically insert track breaks as well, but it is probably better to use the manual track break insertion method (as recommended by the instruction manual), as many original musical sources have quiet spots that can "trick" the Teac into adding one where you don't want it.
Now for the negative... as previous reviewers have stated, the playback sound is disappointment, and by this I am referring to what you get when you put your newly created CDR into your stereo system. The bass response is not adequate. This is the result of Teac chosing to use a ceramic cartridge for the tonearm. This otherwise great machine would have been better served with a magnetic cartridge. Yes, it would have cost more, but would have been worth it.
A few lesser negative points include the fact that Teac chose to include an AM/FM radio rather than a cassette player. My guess is most people would buy this machine to transcribe their old collection of LPs and cassettes that have not been received official release in compact disc format. So why the radio instead of a cassette player? You can record cassettes using the input jacks and provided cables, but you also have to "tie" the Teac to your stereo system in order to do so. Also, what's the story with having input jacks, but no output jacks? You have to listen to the records on the okay, but small speakers provided in the unit, but you cannot listen directly through your stereo system.Read more ›
Although it is clearly not up to audiophile standards, the unit functions well enough for my purposes. There are a few things that Teac could have done to make it a better buy. They could have installed output jacks to allow separate speakers to be used. The built-in speakers are too small & don't have the range. They cause the sound to be tinny with not nearly enough bass response. Fortunately this doesn't effect the recorded cd.
The automatic track division function doesn't work on any analog source. So unless you recording cd to cd, don't use it. You will have to monitor the recording and manually select where to put track divisions. No "set it & forget it" here.
The use of a ceramic cartridge turntable does have a major impact on the quality of recordings. Especially on the low end. You will have to make adjustments to the settings of your playback equipment to conpensate. And although the turntable is 3 speed, the needle is not 2 sided with a 78 needle in addition to the regular one. No 78 rpm needle is provided. DO NOT PLAY 78'S WITH A MODERN LP NEEDLE. YOU WILL DESTROY THE RECORD! I think providing a 78 needle for a turntable capable of playing 78's would have been a no-brainer. but then I am an old fart that is not locked into the digital mentality. Hey. I still listen to the radio.Read more ›

Among other negatives, putting in a new needle stylus will not allow the tone arm to settle onto the record to play.Published on May 24, 2014 by airflowcu
