I have copied Steve Ramm's attachment below.
I would comment on this post and others in the thread that a suitable player
for transfers needs noise reduction and probably simple adjustment for
azimuth error and other factors.

Subject: Fwd: [ARSCLIST] The end of the cassette ? ? ? I'm converting mine
For some reason The ARSCList software deleted my account! I can't post but I
can received List mail. I have NO idea why. I emailed Bryan Cornell.
Anyway, I wanted to post this reply - and of course - it bounced. Can you
please forward this to the ARSCList under your account?

I do have a question about cassettes. Many of us still have hundreds of
cassettes. Our sole interest is in listening to the cassettes or
transferring them to CDs or computer files.
I started transferring my old cassettes (NPR broadcasts etc) in the last
month using the DAK Converter System. So far it's working pretty good. I use
a plain walkman and their unit. I haven't spent time editing tracks yet but
seems pretty simple. And their on line tutorial is for dummies like me.
You can get on 30 day trial. I decided to keep mine. This may not help an
archive but seems to work for me. (I did something similar with my 1000 35
mm slides a few months ago).
Anyway, for the curios, here is the link to watch the demo. (Works with LPs
too but I'm just doing cassettes now). Oh yeah, this is same DAK who made
cheap blank cassettes in the 70s.
Cassettes To CD, Cassettes to MP3s and LPs To CD Perfection
ONE problem I found on this project. I'd fill up lots of 90 minute
cassettes and CDs will only hold up to 80 minutes as a WAV file that I can
play in a CD player. ;-(
