    Califone CAS5272 reviews

    CAS5272 Deluxe Cassette Player & Recorder is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Performance and structure The sound production was good and recording through line in was also good. Recording through external mic. requires a quite room if not because of its sensitive mic and range it captured the background noise around as far as far as 10 feet. The general appearance and finishing was fine. However the pop up feature needs to be improved as it was not efficient. Five times out of ten need to use pin to lift it up manually trough the small hole I front of the tape cover.This malfunction is not acceptable.The mechanic hook/hinge at the right side underneath the tape cover should be redesigned or replaced. I would not recommend this to a friend before the fault has been improved.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Califone CAS5272 Cassette Recorder I purchased this unit on 3/20/2015. This unit displays some problems, though. The cassette door will not close unless you push it all the way to the right (I corrected this with a small washer). The worst complaint I have is the excessive A.C. hum and buzzing that I experience when trying to record from an external audio source when using the supplied A.C. adaptor. There appears to be a design problem with grounding as none of my other recorders have any hum problems. Using the recorder on batteries eliminates the A.C. hum, but I still get some internally generated buzzing which varies as the headphone cord is moved around. For this reason, I give this unit only two stars. I have also found that the internal mic picks up mechanical noise from the machine making it virtually unusable. Playback is acceptable. Note that it is possible that my unit is defective. The bottom line is that this unit could have been better designed in regards to hum pickup.
