    Wow...times have sure changed. I remember when buying an audiophile-grade turntable involved knowing issues like cartridge-type/stylus shape/tracking pressure/force, straight/curved tonearms, belt/direct drive. There were some great companies involved (Thorens/Shure/Stanton). No audiophile would ever let one of these $21 units ride on his/her vinyl discs.

    ^ True but that type of buyer would be putting down at least a couple hundred on the turntable, another couple on a preamp, then another hundred plus on a USB ADC unless recording analog input to the PC which isn't too good on most motherboard integrated audio these days... so if not a USB ADC then a HQ sound card too.

    Granted, you could probably achieve a large step up without all that expense by getting a used turntable from a pawn shop that agrees to take it back later and puts that in writing, plugging it into a $3 USB sound card input, ripping the vinyl then taking the turntable back to the pawn shop. It might be a little noisy though unless the turntable has a preamp built in.

    ^ So true. I still have my collection of LP's, but rarely use them due to the inconvenience. I'm as much a techno acorn as anyone, and I have several digital music players, but there really is *something* to the best of the vinyl discs. There just seems to be more "there"...hard to explain, but if I could play an LP with the ease of an iPod, that's all I would listen to.
