      Since we have a number of both CD's and Casette Tapes, my wife and I needed a player that would work for both. This unit was exactly what I was looking for. I love the fact that I can record to a casette tape via the line input or directly to a memory stick via the USB port, then edit what I have recorded and transfer the material to a CD-R or CD-RW. The quality is very exceptable. The 'instructions for use' are ok but could be a little more explicit.

      The first time I buy something online that is relatively expensive I have problems with it. Unbelieveable. Not only do I find cds skipping, if I hit the back button to go back several songs or to the beginning something strange happens. When it starts playing it only goes 4 or 5 seconds then jumps back to the beginning of the song and repeats itself. It continues to do this over and over. If I take that same tape and use a different CD player I have no problems whatsoever with it. If I purchased this product in a local store I would take it back for an exchange or get my money back. With you I would have to put it in a box and pay an arm and a leg to send it back and I don't feel like doing that. I am just beside myself because I can't understand how a brand new product can work so poorly and I don't know what to do about it.

            Can't say anything about the tape recording, because I only use the device for playback, but it sounds great, I love it. It does have too many features for someone who would just use for playback, but since devices like this are fairly limited, I would definitely buy this one for this purpose alone.

                Comments about Teac AD-800 CD Player & Auto Reverse Cassette Deck w/ USB:

                Many features but low audio quality.
                Sound is dull and boring, which defeats the purpose of component audio... On the other hand, it is quite cheap and, if Teac is still what it used to be, should last a long time.
                So, if you use this in a building audio system, like a school or pub, this unit is for you. It packs lots of features in one unit at a very affordable price.
                If you want to build your home hi-fi audio system however, spend a little more and buy separate units with better audio quality.
                Also note that it only accepts FAT32-formatted USB. It cannot read NTFS-formatted sticks. I mean, who uses FAT32 anymore?...

                      I bought this deck and scrounged up a bunch of TDK-SA90 tapes to make cassettes for my newly acquired '04 Saab 9 5. It has a killer Harmon Kardon system in it. The tapes I make with the AD-800 have outstanding sound quality from deepest bass to highest treble. Who says cassettes are obsolete? The only thing lacking is it doesn't stop the tape when recording from a programmed sequence.

                      We had our trusty Teac AD-600 for ten years until one Sunday morning it locked up and wouldn't load CD's. The AD-800 is so much better for our church. With just one CD player we are happy, especially since we can play from the CD, the cassette or the USB thumb drive. Loved the free shipping and handling. Your package arrived in just five days.I'll diffinetly shop B&H again.

                        This product is what I wanted - being able to transfer audio to USB thumbdrive without using a computer to do the job. But it is not able to burn audio to a CD which is available in another model of Teac. A word of warning about this product is that don't try to multi-task with this product otherwise it would spoil. This unit can only single-task.

                            I use the Teac AD-800 to play cassettes recorded from Internet radio stations in Europe. I also make "learn tapes" with my bass guitar recorded on the right channel and album songs on the left channel.

                                I have audiobooks on cassette that I'm transferring to cd. As long as the recording level is set correctly there is virtually no difference in the audio. No fast dubbing so a 90 minute cassette takes 90 min to record would be the only drawback.

                                Good- All the functions that I required are available.

                                For the price, the quality is appropriate but a better built higher quality model should be offered in future.
