Can't speak for the cassette deck, BUT for preservation purposes the USB ION turntable... well... I'll stick to my SP-15, if ya know what I mean. Do it right or stay home :-)
That's not saying it's okay for fun or amature stuff, but we are professionals are we not?

Anybody have any real hands-on reviews of the ION/Alesis USB Tape2PC Cassette
I'm looking for serious-user feedback about these. Can they be recommended
for playback/digitization for preservation transfers?
No, I won't trade a Dragon for two of them <smile>.
