Hard to read control buttons


It is a great product but the front face design. It is too light and can't easily read the controls and what they do because they blend into the base background. Very frustrating, although its function is what is supposed to be.

Easy To Clean, Easy To Install

Poor Design

Love the Songwriter


I couldn't believe it when my 16 year old son asked for a record player. He recently began collecting records and needed something to play them on. I came across the Songwriter CD Recorder and it seemed like the one to pick. It has many great features!...

Absolutely Awesome


I just recently began collecting records-I've always loved music! I wanted a simple turntable that was good quality and would look nice in my home. This is it! It's funny how much better vinyl sounds as opposed to digital files.

Perfect Gift


I shopped around a lot looking for a turntable that would record albums to CD. I bought this item as a gift for my Dad several months ago and he is still raving about it to this day. I felt compelled to share this with others. I was a little worried...

CD Skip Track ->| (Manual) gone bad


I've had it almost 4 weeks. Today both the skip track buttons on the unit are'nt working when playing CDs. The remote gets it done so i suspect they are just really cheap buttons. There's a lot of noise added when converting tape to CD. It would be...
