Testimonials

We average about 400 customers each year, many of these jobs are one off orders but it is also great to have many customers return at later dates to have more audio transfer work done by us and bring new customers by recommendation.

Here are just a few testimonials received from customers who have used our service:

Gary Ankin has taken a very tatty, degraded 1960s audio tape on a reel of mine, and transferred it to a CD which involved much delicate handling such as carefully lubricating the ancient tape as it travelled over the tape heads and rollers to avoid it failing that he has done brilliantly. I cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism in doing this and would undoubtedly ask him to carry out similar work for me. DG

Thank you Gary, for such brilliant service again.The first time I used mkvinyl2cd the cassette tapes of my father playing the guitar were over 50 yrs old, the CD is a perfect copy. I can certainly recommend Gary’s work AMJ

I am delighted with the work Gary has done for me, transferring music from an old 78 to a CD. The record was made over sixty years ago of my college choir and me singing for a BBC programme. Hearing it once more on my laptop is like magic. It has brought back happy memories and I am thrilled to bits! I would recommend Gary to anyone who needs similar to be done. He was kind and helpful throughout, and worked very quickly and efficiently. Thanks Gary! – CM

I collected my package from the Post Office this morning and, same as the first time we did business, (a few years ago)everything is to my absolute satisfaction. I hope that somehow you can use this Absolute Testimonial to your benefit. Thank you for everything and best wishes. PA

Found Gary’s MK VINYL 2 CD on Google and decided to ask him to do what he could to improve the sound on a home made cassette tape of friends made in the mid-seventies. Did not expect too much as the recordings were made in bedrooms and bathrooms over forty years ago on a small Phillips cassette recorder and had become virtually unlistenable due to the tape hiss. However, the end result is absolutely outstanding and I am once again able to listen clearly to old friends trying to be the new Simon & Garfunkel! (It never happened). Gary clearly runs a professional business and kept in touch during the proceedings, keeping me advised and up to date. I have no hesitation in recommending him for any similar work you may be contemplating. His charges are more than fair and you will not be disappointed. Go on, treat yourself! GT

I have used Gary to transfer cassettes to CD’s on more than one occasion and I have been delighted with the results. He is pleasant and polite and is able to do all sorts of adaptions to the audio, I would recommend him to anyone – JJ

I can thoroughly recommend MK Vinyl 2 CD, from beginning to end the service that they offered was brilliant. They provided me with information throughout the process and completed the work including delivery back to me in less than a week. The tape that we had transferred was around 45years old and had spent a lot of its life in a garage so we knew it might not be possible to transfer it successfully but we couldn’t be happier with the results. Many thanks – JH

It is impossible to imagine a better service than that provided to me by MkVinyl2CD. I sent my vinyl disc to Gary on a Monday afternoon and I got it back along with the CD containing the digital version on the Wednesday morning. The quality of the CD version was excellent and the price, including First Class Signed-For postage, represented great value, being less than half the cost charged by a local company I had used before. Gary was helpful throughout and needless to say I will not hesitate to do business again. Highly recommended – CT

Gary’s service is first class. He takes sometimes ropey old vinyl and using his skills in audio restoration manages to produce CDs that sound as if they have just been recorded. I have always found the service to be speedy and first class in every sense. I would wholeheartedly recommend MK Vinyl2CD to anyone who needs a quality transfer of old audio material. – RC

Early 2010 the Family home was being vacated and on a clear out i came across some of my Mum’s old Vinyls which she treasured. These Vinyls were no longer made available and CD of the Album was also deleted. After several attempts i was not happy with sloppy work i was getting back from other companies, i found Gary’s web site before i sent Gary the first album i had a 20 minute conversation and i knew instantly Gary knew what he was doing. I sent my first 2 Vinyls off and they were professionally Transferred to CD. Would highly recommend his services – FM

I appreciated the personal service and the sound quality of my CDs is superb – MS

To all concerned,I recommend this Company to all interested parties.I sent 2 old jazz 7″ EP’s that I’ve owned since 1963.They had not been played since the 1970’s and sat in my loft gathering dust until now.I sent them to Gary for transfer to CD.They were professionally
cleaned and processed,and the resulting CD is astounding especially as the records were the old Mono recordings.A nice friendly Company to deal with,you will not be disappointed – RG

It was probably only a small job by Gary’s standards. Putting a 20 year-old amateur cassette recording of a radio show onto CD, But I could not have received better attention or advice if I was a high-spending, serial customer. The disc exceeded all my expectations. Great service, great result, great value – David H

When Gary moved to Devon I thought all was lost but his service is still only two post boxes away as before – JP

My tape was not broken but would not run properly due to what I now know is ‘sticky shed’ syndrome due to the age of the tape, but Gary baked the tape and carried out a perfect transfer so my children can hear their Grandad for the first time ever from 45 yrs ago, thank you so much – IC

Having found Gary’s website via Google, I was delighted by the prompt and complete reply to my questions, and as I live in Switzerland, especially happy that he could go the “extra mile” regarding postage etc.. Job done quickly, and as always, a timely email to let me know that the goods were in the post back to me – without my even having made the PayPal payment! Wonderful service, and I will spread the word in this part of Europe. Thank you Gary. RD

I have used Gary’s services extensively since 2009, for vinyl records, tapes and 78rpm. I started with small lots, and once Gary had proven himself I spent several hundreds of pounds transferring the most important parts of my collection to digital files. The quality Gary is able to produce with his high-end equipment is exceptional, often matching the results a professional studio would create. However, Gary never adds unwanted effects such as reverberation – what you get is the best possible authentic reproduction of the sound on your analogue media. To top it all off, Gary is a consummate professional, and one of the most honest and dedicated service providers you will ever find. I totally recommend this man and his service to anyone needing high-end digital transfers. I’ll be moving house soon, so I’m not looking to buy in any more material until that is completed. If I do get anything else which needs transferring, you’ll definitely get the job. AW

I decided after many months of deliberation to get my main bulk of precious vinyl transferred onto CD. Gary could not have been more friendly and informative about the whole process. Gary didn’t stop until I was completely satisfied with everything. He’s just done some editing work for me and I enjoyed the same high standard of service as last time; nothing is too much trouble for him. All in all, a very thorough job done at a very reasonable price. I would urge anyone contemplating digitising precious old recordings on whatever format not to delay any longer. You won’t be disappointed with either Gary’s friendly and informative attitude or with the end results. Many Thanks! CC
