Ok I am all kinds of jazzed....

got a record player/cd/cassette/radio that records to cds I need to dig out all my records. I had some easy to get but the rest are in a closet that my computer desk is in front of. Those will not be easy to get to. Most of the records are or used to be my parents but I now claim them as mine.

Most are from the 60’s and 70’s. i have the beatles white album, the doors first album. The Easy Rider Soundtrack. Jimi Henrix and Otis Redding from the montery pop festivel. Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. I am listening to my Madonna Like a Virgin album right now. Next will be Thriller since these are mine my mom bought them for me when they had come out.I have to say for me being 8 years old when this madonna album came out I took pretty good care of it. hardly any scratches. This won’t be put on cd since it does have scratches and i have the mp3’s of these songs anyway but I am so excited about this player. I need to find our old christmas albums, Right now I only have Barbra Streisand a christmas album out. I know we have a chipmunks christmas and a few other chipmunks records. I have chipmunk punk from back in the day with the chipmunks singing the knack and the cars and i think blondie songs. At least these albums were in easy reach. I had a record player when i got my first stereo but it broke and haven’t had a record player since. These albums were just put in easy reach unlike the others. I have a load of elvis records that were my grandma’s that I got when she died.

Wow, that thing looks awesome! My husband would love it, where'd you get it from?

we got it from Kohls. I haven't tried the recording aspect of it yet but I plan to do that tomorrow. the record player works great. the only thing about the cassette part i hate is you can only fast forward and not rewind.

I just made my first cassette to cd recording you can do it auto or manual. I wanted to try the auto first. the only problem with the auto is it ended up putting a couple blank tracks (2 seconds worth) when i reinserted the cassette which i could have deleted but whatever lol. I was in the middle of getting dinner started so i said fuck it. I used a CD-rw just in case i needed to delete the cd and start over. I have to say if you follow the instructions on how to record from tape or record this could be pretty awesome.
I wanted to make sure all aspects of this thing works in case it needed to be returned you know. you can adjust the recording volume I had mine set pretty high but the sound isn't distorted on the cd.
I saw this thing on the bed bath and beyond website and amazon has it too. here's the link to amazon

cool cool... thank you! I'm going to look into it, I think he'd really like it. However I am thinking (& JUST thinking... lol) about the ps3.. and if I end up getting him that, that is ALL he's getting lol.

a ps3 s cool. I just wanted to give ya some info about the record player dealie.
Dec. 3rd, 2009 02:12 am (UTC)
Yeah a PS3 is cool, but really expensive lol. So I'm really thinking about this too... at least I have options ;) I appreciate the info!
Dec. 3rd, 2009 02:17 am (UTC)
glad i could help :)

That is awesome! I was just talking with a friend yesterday about the first album I got... Mickey Mouse disco!

woohoo that sounds pretty good too. I love chipmunk punk. I found our chipmunk christmas albums. we have 3. hopefully I can put them on cd if there aren't scratches that are really bad in them I will be copying them onto cd so i can listen to them.

Are you still liking it? I am pretty sure I'm going to get this for him. I'm comparing price from Amazon, BB&B and Kohl's. If BB7B carries it in store I think that's my best bet because of their 20% off coupons. I'm gonna go shopping Saturday.
The PS3 I kind of gave up on for now, cause he mentioned he'd want an HD TV for it also, cause it wouldn't work well with our old TV. I'm not buying both at once, so he pretty much ruined it lol.
Dec. 10th, 2009 03:50 pm (UTC)
Oh, and I don't see it online at Kohl's... send me a link if you do. Did you get it instore at Kohl's? I have a 20% coupon for them too... so I could go to either as long as they have it at mine!
Dec. 10th, 2009 04:05 pm (UTC)
yea we got it in store. we were walking and there it was. I'd call to see if they have it. the brand name is innovative technology and the link for amazon i think has the model number
Dec. 10th, 2009 04:08 pm (UTC)
yea I am still liking it. played our christmas albums lots of times. I haven't recorded anything again yet cus i am looking for albums without scratches which is kinda hard lol unfortunately lots of the albums we have are really old and maybe not the whole album has scratches but one song and I am still a pain in the ass about not recording them just cus of that. I may do the chimpmunks albums just cus it's the chipmunks and they are awesome. but when you do record from record or cassette ya have to follow the directions or it won't turn out right.
Dec. 11th, 2009 07:08 am (UTC)
the good thing about BB&B is that you can combine coupons (at least that's what my aunt says lol i've never shopped there)

I bought it today! Got it at Kohl's, it was the last one, and it had actually been returned but not because anything was wrong with it. So hopefully its ok, I opened it and it doesn't look like they even unpackaged it. And I got a bunch of Kohl's cash from it & everything else I bought there today, so now I can go back and buy my mom a gift since she's the only one I have left. Thanks for all the info! =)

at least with Kohls you can return it if something is wrong though. Gotta love Kohls Cash. My mom just got 30% that starts next week so we are gonna go shopping friday or something she needs stuff for herself.
No problem I hope he likes it :)
