If you’ve got a collection of old vinyl records and analog cassette tapes you want to transfer to CD, consider an all-in-one stereo combo. Not only are they easier on your pocketbook than buying separate components, combo units also save time. No need to deal with a number of patch cords or a confusing computer software program.
These units look cool, too. Most have the look of vintage radios of the 1930s and 1940s, making them an ideal gift for grandparents who might feel a bit intimidated by modern technology. They’ll appreciate the classic design, excellent sound quality, simplicity and ease of use.
