Re: Transferring LPs
Posted by Paul Serotsky on April 11, 2019, 3:57 am, in reply to "Transferring LPs
Is there any special reason why it HAS to be a "USB turntable"? You can get excellent transfers by feeding the output from ANY old turntable (though of course high-quality is to be preferred), via your amplifier (or a phono pre-amp) into your PC's audio-in socket. You will probably need an RCA to 3mm jack adapter cable (which will cost no more than the price of a pint or two) to make the connection.
I've done a fair number of transfers from my collection of LPs, played on my 50-years-old Goldring Lenco GL75 turntable, and the results, to my admittedly limited hearing, have been indistinguishable from the original LP sound.
I hope this helps.
