Converting Audio Cassettes to CDs
First off I assume you have the manual for you're 5700. if not a PDF copy is here
Assuming you have a standalone tape deck that has phono inputs and outputs connection and recording recording should be easily achieved.
Forget the coaxial unless of course your tape deck has digital outputs.
Assuming it hasn't just connect the two output sockets from the tape dec which may be labelled REC out left and REC out right to the Line in (L) and Line (R) of the CD recorder.
The physical setup is now complete.
The increment level they refer to in the manual offers you a choice of 3 final decibel output levels in other words how loud it will be when it is finally recorded onto the disc.
the last paragraph on page 16 is relevant to the setup described above.
Page 15 of your manual is all you need to achieve tape transfer to CD.
follow the steps below and choose ANALOG the source to be played is your tape deck so once the process has begun press the play button on your tape deck and you should get a decent recording. Leave everything else at their default settings until you get a better understanding of how to tweak your recordings.
Personally I transfer audio tapes directly to my PC and Audio edit them until they are perfect but I've been doing this for years.

How to turn on tdk life on record
Hold down the A33 and AUX button together for 5 seconds. The A33 should flash the volume LEDs and then reset and turn off. Let the speakers remain off for 10 seconds before turning it back on. The unit powers on in the AUX mode and you should be able to press Bluetooth and pair the unit with your device.

My TDK st100 Head phones have no Sound in the left headphone
MMMmm, bummer. The earphone CABLES look rather small and vulnerable?
IF you move the CABLE NEAR the connecter do you hear any sound? How about up at the earphones themselves? If you wiggle the cable are there any sounds?
There HAS to be a 'open circuit' somewhere? Maybe the volume was set too high and the LEFT earphone happened to blow out?
And perhaps it's time to treat yourself to a NEW headset with a MUCH better and substantial connecting cable?
