I have over 1500 tapes that I want to convert to digital MP3 sound. What is the best conversion equipment for a iMac?

Specifically:
Tape deck
Storage
Software to clean up and clear up sound quality
Speed
Efficiency

Thanks!!!!!

    Cheap solution - Audacity software. run a line from a headphone jack to your line-in and use the software to to changes channels, set levels etc.

    Anything you do will have to be real time. then export as .wav so you don't get too much loss in any future conversions.

    This is the only method I have tried and is good enough for me. The wav files produced are large but easily converted to something more manageable but I keep mine on a external HDD as a reference file.
