Digitize your LP collection
Don't know what a vinyl record looks like? Then you can skip this post completely.
For those of you who have an LP collection (2,000) collecting dust in the attic, this Plug 'n' Play USB turntable can digitize those vinyl LP's so you can listen to them on your computer. The turntable includes software to edit and cleanup your digitized audio files, though a audiofile will ususually tell you that vinyl has more character, warmth and emotion than digital.We're not going to start up that debate here.
If you want to use it as a standard tunrtable it can be connected to your stereo system.
For $139 you get a felt slipmat, 45-rpm adapter, line level RCA cables, USB cable and recording software on CD-ROM. Requires Windows 98SE/Me/2000/XP or Mac OS 9+.
MP3 recording requires third-party encoder, not included.
