Play, Listen and Record all your vinyl, CDs, tapes and even AM/FM radio direct to a CD you can play anywhere, plus record any other external music source too - all at a touch of a button and without a computer!
We’ve packed so many features into this one machine: the new ‘CD Wizard’ is Neostar’s first ever 6-in-1 music centre and our simplest to use machine yet!

You can even make your own compilations from different sound sources all onto a single CD, or transfer your recordings to a computer for safe keeping!

FAQ’s: Q Is there a way to decrease the sensitivity of the track division or increment feature so that individual tracks from older vinyl records and tapes can be transferred to CD successfully? A many older recordings feature a certain amount of background noise / hiss and this can affect the ability of the equipment to recognise the beginning and end of individual tracks. This problem can be solved using the MANUAL track increment mode as detailed on page 33 of the operation manual. Alternatively you can divide your recorded tracks by using the Audacity software provided. See page 52 in the user manual for details.
Q Can I add external speakers? A No. The built-in amplifier has a maximum output power of 5W RMS. The internal speakers are already a combined 5W RMS. Also, there is no line out for connecting extra speakers.
Q Using AUX-IN, how can I connect my radio in order to either listen or record to CD? A
