Steepletone SMC922 5-in-1 Music System With CD Recording And Remote Control – : More complicated to operate than expected

Not something i would recommend, not easy to record from vinyl to cd. Not something i would recommend, not easy to record from vinyl to cd. One of the cd players is already playing up and the sound is not level on both speakers yet cd11 is fine.

Steepletone smc922 black 5-in1 cd/turntable/cassette/line-in/radio. Arrived the day after ordering,unfortunately when unpacked the lid hinge was broken. A call to the seller brought immediate offer of complete replacement and free collection of the damaged goods. This happened two days later,fantastic service. Have not used all the product facilities yet, but the radio,tape and cassette are very good. Recording seems complicated but i’m sure with experience will become easier.

Standard purchases each person is different, but i want to say is that we must choose their own, i am glad my heart in the amazo. Two thumbs up rare for these items. Works well seriously try it not bad at all good bargain, i will be buying a few more sets. Absolutely love this product.

Sound quality remarkably good. Nice unit, a little let down by the cheap plastic finish,sound quality better than i was expecting, but slightly more complex to record cassettes onto disc than i had hoped.

Playing cds and is quite high pitched which is annoying. Shame really apart from that it does the. Can hear the fan quite loudly when playing cds and is quite high pitched which is annoying. Shame really apart from that it does the job.

Avoids using a computer when copying vinyl to cd. . I’d previously tried using a pc based recording system that had so many options and adjustments that i never managed to get an acceptable sound reproduction. This stand alone unit copies directly from cassette, vinyl even cd to cd (without a pc) at the press of a couple of buttons – however the sequence does need a little practice even though the instruction manual is clear to follow. You need to start the cd recording before you start playing the vinyl so you tend to have a few seconds lead in time on the cd as you can’t accurately co-ordinate the two. The resulting recorded sound is quite good beven though there are no facilities anyway for adjustment. The resultant treble sounds are a little tinny, however for the units simplicity it is quite acceptable. I have so far recorded five albums and they play on other equipment ok so long as you remember to ‘finalise’, this is easy to do as part of the process. I have not yet used it for recording cassette or cd to cd. So for these reasons i’ve given it 4 stars but you can’t really expect fully ‘professional’ results at such a reasonable price – it does what it says it does.

Well i will start with the delivery, excellent told me 5 weeks received it in 3 days. Everything well packed and complete. I am confident at setting up electrical equipment, easy to set up, managed to record from lp to cd, but took a while to work out how to finalize to cd. Also i discovered that you need to press the ts button after each track so that when you play your cd you can pick and choose your tracks, if you dont press ts then you just have to let your cd play through. Managed to record from tape to cd but as at this moment cannot finalize onto cd, dont know what is wrong, will keep trying. Also the side where the tape goes in through a little flimsy letter box has come off, but it is not really necessary. Everything seems to be well made the playback of everything is good tone although the radio tends to fade in and out, but that could be the area where we live. Overall i think it is good value for the money, just the instructions are a little confusing, but can eventually be worked out. It does do what it says, and saves you messing around with the computer and attaching different electrical goods to get the same outcome.

Its a nice machine but one would think the screen would light up when you use the radio.

This product is very easy to use, with excellent recording quality, also good sound quality on radio and tape deck.

More difficult to use than i had assumed. The record player arm has to be precisely moved ,both on and off, without any ”suspension” that we used to have. I was also surprised that having made a disc , complete with track separations, when you copy that you have to put the track separations in again, though i can see that could be needed if you wanted to alter the original arrangement. I would also have liked the display to show what capacity remains as the recording is being made.

    Pretty good and very useful. I ordered this for a friend who doesn’t have a computer or internet access. It was exactly what he wanted to copy cds onto other discs so he can use copied discs in the car rather than the originals. He seemed to think it was pretty good but hasn’t yet explored every facility on it.

      1. Good but needs automatic lowering device. Excellent except it has no automatic lowering device on the record player. I am old and shakey and this makes it very difficult for me to lower the needle onto the record.
