Cassette Transcribers

What are cassette transcribers?

Cassette Transcribers are machines that can record and play audio cassettes. Historically speaking, the most common type of audio cassettes used in cassette transcribers are the ’standard’ audio cassettes, rectangular in shape, they are able to fit neatly in the palm of your hand. In this day and age, they aren’t as popular as they use to be in the eighties and nineties – however many companies still use them for their many useful
transcription purposes. The most common of these purposes are commercial audio recordings. These audio cassettes continue to be sold worldwide, in places such as supermarkets, some corner stores, music stores, and department stores. Although the CD and DVD era have arrived, cassette transcribers are still being used in some hospitals and clinics due to their ease of use.

What are the best Cassette Transcribers on the market?

Although most cassette transcriber models are discontinued, there are still many retailers out there that sell the product. You can purchase a cassette transcriber from 50$ onwards, but the real gems are in the 150-200 dollar category. Personally, my favorite
cassette transcriber is the Panasonic RR-830 model. The RR-830 has long been the market leader of cassette transcribers, and it comes with the following features.

  • Function Play/Record
  • Playback Variable Speed Control
  • Quick Erase
  • Tape Counter
  • Auto Backspacing
  • Tone and Volume Controls
  • Variable Backspacing
  • Foot Control 2-function (not included)
  • Headset
The RR-830 in my opinion is worth every penny, and the above features justify that. Many cassette transcribers don't come with headsets, but the RR-830 comes with its own special headset. If your looking for a standard cassette transcriber folks, then i highly recommend this model. Conclusively, just know that there aren't many of these models in the market anymore - so take a few minutes to browse the internet because there are some sites that sell them. Alternatively, if you're interested in a mini-cassette transcriber - flip over to the next page and have a read of the information that has been prepared for you.
