Product Description

TEAC GF-350 turntable/cd recorder system with amplifier

Amazon.com

Finally, there's a way to burn vinyl to CD that doesn't require a computer or an engineering degree. With Teac's GF-350 turntable and CD recorder combo system, you simply load a blank CD-R or CD-RW, put on your LP, press "record," lower the tone arm, and press "play." You can record the entire album or simply pull select favorites from your entire collection to make your own unique compilations. Monitor your recording through the systems amplifier (3.5 watts per channel x 2) and twin 3-inch speakers, or avail yourself of the convenient front-panel .125-inch headphone jack.

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.

Here's a new electronic wonder that could have been truly great, but isn't.

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.

Like most people considering this unit, I have loads of old vinyl LP's I want to record to CD. Prior to buying this unit I bought a Phillips CD recording deck for my stereo that has yet to record a single sound. I should have known - all the reviews on that unit mentioned the first units being returned due to not working - my mistake. This unit is far different in that respect - it arrived late yesterday afternoon vis UPS and I'm using it this morning successfully. As mentioned in other reviews, the sound quality out of the speakers is terrible - thin and tinny, no bass response. I did a lot of online poking around before buying - most info states it uses CD-R's, it doesn't - it requires audio CD-R's, often harder to find and not as cheap as a CD-R for your PC. A valid comment is that it would be better to have a built-in tape player instead of an unneeded radio tuner, but do you really still use your tape deck on your stereo much? I don't, and it's being moved to be connected to this unit permanently via the input jacks. It records to standard audio CD format so if, like me, you want to get MP3's off your records you'll need to rip the CD on your PC. I'd recommend ripping to WAV format so you can use a WAV editing program to clean up the sound a bit and maybe restore a bit of bass (depending on the ability of the WAV editor you use). All told, this is an effective and intuitive all-in-one unit that gets the job done. The CD recorder is a bit slow in reaction times. You can't hit pause betwen tracks on most records to create individual tracks because the pause function is too slow in its reaction time to stop/restart quickly enough to keep up with the LP. Also finalizing isn't terrifically intuitive.Read more ›

I am currently in the process of recording my LP collection, 100's, on to cd's. This little machine really does a good job without all the bells and whistles and needing an engineering degree. I have been able to listen to records that I hadn't heard in 30 years. No, it is not as good a sound as digital, but clearly beats the old cassette recordings. The only improvement I would suggest is the bass tone needs to be upgraded. That little clitch can be overcome by simply turning up the bass on whatever you play it on, car, home stereo, etc.

I purchased this unit with 2 major ideas in mind. 1. I liked the look. 2. Convert all of my LP's and cassettes to CD. I did my homework including reading other reviews here. So there was really only a few surprises. This unit will not record onto computer cd's. It requires special audio grade cd's. These are a bit more difficult to find and I am concerned that with the emphasis on DVD's these days, the recordable audio cd will rapidly go the way of the 8-track.

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.
