If you have one foot in the past (audio cassettes) and one step in the future (MP3 files) then you should consider the Pyle Pro PT-659DU Dual Stereo Cassette Deck w/Tape USB to MP3 Converter right now.

With it not only can you convert your old cassettes to MP3 files, you can also copy from cassette to cassette, if you just love cassettes and don't want to part with them. And you can dub them at normal or high speed. Dynamic noise suppression helps keep tape hiss and other artifacts to a minimum.

You can use conventional metal tapes or for higher quality use chromium dioxide (CrO2) tapes, the formulation that revolutionized cassettes in the 1980s with its higher quality. A handy front-panel selector makes it easy to switch.

When dubbing or simple playback is finished the tape transport shuts down automatically.

You've got RCA line in and line out jacks as alternatives to get music in and out of the device in addition to a USB port to connect to a PC or Macintosh computer. The Pyle Pro PT-659DU Dual Stereo Cassette Deck w/Tape USB to MP3 Converter is the affordable solution to duping cassettes in an age when cassette equipment is becoming increasingly rare.

              Comments about Pyle Pro PT-659DU Dual Stereo Cassette Deck w/Tape USB to MP3 Converter:

              This is a basic unit but for the money I didn't expect any more than that. I just want to play my tapes once to achieve a transfer to digital and, for that, it's perfect. Having said that, one of the bays has an annoying squeak in the playback mechanism and the tape counter on the other bay went kaput after a few days. Neither of these issues are a problem for my purposes but for anyone wanting to just listen to tapes or for more advanced uses, I would suggest getting a better quality unit - probably the Teac W-890R-B (also available via B&H for about $) because, as far as I know, there aren't any other choices out there for home use.

              Unsurpassed quality sound experienced with every cassette tape converted to MP3. My barely used library of motivational tapes can know be stored on a memory card so I can listen to them on an MP3 player while walking and working out.

                    The unit worked for about 45 minutes. The record and play buttons were very hard to push down and after flipping the tape over, neither of them would lock into position. Hopefully, they will replace the unit with one that works properly for a while.

                        Got this for my dad as a gift. He can't let go of cassettes so the minute he open the box he started recording immediately. It still has the same functions as any cassette player in the past. Loving this.

                        Using this product to transfer my audio cassettes to CD's. Nothing fancy. It just does its job. This product is fine for home use, however, I don't believe it could stand up to large volume usage. If that was necessary, you would most certainly buy a higher quality, more expensive unit.

                          Both tape decks function as they should. In regular play mode there isn't any issues and as far as converting taps to mp3 files, this part works just as well.The hundred dollar price tag makes it worth it.
