Vinyl to Digital
If you're a geezer like myself with a deep, if sordid, audio past, or a closet DJ with a pile of Queen Latifah records, you probably have some vintage vinyl lying in storage somewhere that's just begging to get on your computer. Well it just might be time to consider transferring some of your audio gold from analog to digital. If you don't have a turntable, there are several turntables on the market that can do the job via USB. We like the Ion iTTUSB Turntable with USB Recorder available at Amazon.com for $149.99, it comes with software for Mac or PC. Be prepared for this one to be back-ordered.
If you're more of an audiophile and/or have a good existing turntable, you may want to try another option, the ART USB Phono Plus USB Audio Interface, whereby many types of analog audio sources: cassette, vinyl, etc. can connect to your Mac or PC (comes with software). This device allows you to use your existing analog equipment and high-end turntable to get a better quality sound transfer. $99.95 at Amazon, or Sweetwater
