I very much like the HamiltonBuhr Cassette Tape Player/Recorder because it is a sturdy machine that works as well as I hoped. I purchased it to play old cassette tapes and it plays them efficiently and as well as the player I had a long time ago. My only criticism of it is that it does not have a counter, but aside from that, I think this is an excellent machine.

Good for the money

Plenty of features, and a fair price. I would have preferred something similar but more durable as to construction. This might wear out in heavy use, but I needed a unit fast and I got it. B&H delivers.

Solid device - well built - wish power cord could detach

By Kevin

For the money works well. I have about 50 educational audio tapes that I wanted to listen to again and this player does the job. Sound is adequate for my use but don't consider this as a good music player. Your mobile phone likely sounds much better. My only complaint is I wish it came with a detachable power cord as this one is hard-wired .

Better made in the 80's

I ordered 2 units, and BOTH were defective. The first one chewed up & destroyed my only copy of a tape, after playing for 3 minutes. And both units will not record unless you keep your fingers on the record play buttons.

Very nice product

Bought as gift for my 80 year old legally blind Dad. He wanted something simple to operate. He's very happy with this player/recorder and glad someone still makes a product familiar for older folks.

Perfect little cassette player for review of what's on that old cassette. If you like what you hear, plug in a USB storage stick and the unit will digitize the audio for high resolution long term storage or playback on a full stereo system. Large speaker has plenty of volume. Great value for the price.

question

The built-in microphone is very ineffective on my machine. Can I buy a separate microphone for this item? If so, where can I order it?
Asked by: Richard H.
Connect a low-impedance microphone to the Microphone Socket (3.5mm jack). For microphones featuring a remote stop-start switch, connect to the Remote Socket (2.5mm jack).
