Cassettes to CDs

I have a whole bunch of audio cassettes and vinyl records that I rarely listen to because I'm just so used to playing CDs now. So I went looking for a way to digitize my analog audio collection and found this. Now the question is whether it's worth $70 and the time it'll take to digitize them or whether I should just dig out the cassettes when there's something I want to hear.

Just got my new green iPod mini. First loads: Miles Davis, Kind of Blue; Art Tatum Group Masterpieces vol. 3 with Lionel Hampton and Buddy Rich; Steely Dan, Gold; Fugazi, 13 Songs; Prince, The Hits 2; JS Bach, Mass in B Minor. Something for every mood. Shuffling not recommended.
