Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    I have heard and I have read that these "Audio Cassette to MP3 Music Converters" produce a poor quality recording. Anyone out there recommend a specific brand that works well enough for high quality dependable recordings?

    Any good tape deck hooked up to your sound card…

    …and the most important tip is you must select the version of
    Dolby noise reduction used to record that tape; otherwise it
    will sound way too hot or muffled and you'd want to cut or
    boost high frequencies manually by trial and error.

      Ah yes, the old Dolby A/B/C switch. You sound like you must have been one of those home-taping pirates that killed the music industry.

      Like most old-technology electronic platforms, the vast majority of "good tape decks" these days would unfortunately be found buried in landfills.
