A friend of mine is looking to buy a stand alone burner. I don't know a thing about them or what to reccomend. He has recently been exposed to trading and I am sure will be an avid trader one day. But he is primarily interested in transferring old LPs & Reel to Reel Tapes that he cant buy on CD to CDR. If anyone has words of wisdom that I could share with him I would really appreciate it. Other than a burner, his stereo components and the right connections is there anything else he would need? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Please post here, e-mail to jim.steding@att.net or send a PM.

Thanks,

Jimmy

Hey Jimmy -

I have a Marantz Professional CDR631 stand alone burner. It's great. I've had it for several years and I've never had any problems with it at all. It has the capability to record on both audio and data discs. The only draw back to it is that it records in 1X speed which basically means that you have to turn it on and let it run, or god forbid listen to the disc as you are recording it!!! These days I mostly use my PC burner, but the Marantz is still nice to have. Maybe Marantz has a newer model now that records at higher speeds. I don't know. Something to look into. But overall I highly recommend it for consistent quality and accuracy.

Jimmy,

I have a TDK stand-alone burner. The speed can be changed from 1x, 2x, or 4x. I have not had any problems with it. Only drawback I have is the blanks, I use HAVE to be audio blanks or it will read as no disc in the burner. I mostly use Fujifilm and have not had any problems with using them. My burner does have connections in the back if I want to use an outside input such as computer, record player, etc. Good luck with your search and helping out your friend. I'm sure you can find something out there.

My sony stand alone was great until it went down last month. And boy, did it get a workout!

Never had any issues with brand of disc, as long as they were audio.

I'd recommend it in a NY minute.

First post by Merlin says his will take data or audio.

Never heard that before, but what a welcome feature that would be.

Yes, the Marantz professional CDR631 stand alone accepts both data and audio discs. It's great because you don't have to worry about buying audio discs all the time!

I believe Marantz also has a CDR duplicator (a play deck and a record deck) that also accepts both audio and data discs. I think it's the CDR500 or something like that. But I don't have that one, so I can't comment on it's quality.
