Thing is, if you are anything like me, you might well have a pile of cassettes still sat around the house, some containing material not available on CD format. So the Plus Deck isn’t as daft as it first sounds. Just slip in a cassette to convert, edit and play your old sounds on your PC. And once they’re in MP3 format, you can bin that big pile of plastic and reclaim a corner of your room.
The deck is easily installed in any spare 5.25-inch bay of your computer and comes with software to make conversion easy. No Mac version (for obvious reasons), though you can convert cassettes on a Mac with something like TerraTec iVinyl.
The Plus Deck retails for £99.95.
