ION Audio Tape Express Converts Cassettes To MP3s

By Andrew Liszewski

If you’ve yet to make the move from analog cassette tapes to digital audio files, the Tape Express from ION Audio will make the transition a bit easier for you. First of all, the device looks like an old-school Walkman, and if you’re still listening to cassettes on a daily basis, there’s a good chance you’re a master of that technology. Converting your tapes to MP3s is as easy as connecting the device to your PC via USB and hitting play. The included EZ Tape Converter software will take care of the rest.

And if you’re having a difficult time transitioning to this futuristic circa-1995 digital MP3 technology, the Tape Express also works like a regular tape player, allowing you to listen to your music the old-fashioned way. IWOOT appears to have it for just over $80, though they’re sold out at the moment.

    I could see that one of these cold be handy if you have a lot of old tapes laying around.

    This is an interesting idea. I'm still waiting for the re-emergence of records, now don't go thinking I'm some old dude with a crazy obsession for the past, I'm 20.. But the depth and warmth of the sound from a vinyl is second to none when pared with an old Tube Amp and set of nice speakers(from any generation).

    I have a bunch of old vinyls from my uncle from the 60's and 70's…I listen to them more than anything at home because nothing else sounds quite as good.
