I just posted the article All in one LP to CD recorder for the technically challenged.

I must give
Engadget
the credit for spotting this appliance. For those of us with a box of vinyl
still laying around or better yet, parents that wish they could get all their
favorite…

Daaam! What were you thinking, RIAA. Couldnt have thrown in some drm on LP? :B Seriously, the appliance kicks ass. 'be nice to have a direct drive and mp3 encoder though. Cheers FidelC p.s. “let me just go and find a cash machine”-the big lebowski.

LP to CD, nice idea, but too expensive.

You can get far better with the line-in and a PC, but I guess for (rich) old people who dont own a PC this would be good. Then again, $500 would buy alot of professional, high quality remastered LPs. Ben :slight_smile:

ceramic cartridge? arrgghh! that is precisely why people say $20 cd players sound better than records. a transfer with a high-end magnetic cartridge [pickering, shure, stanton. etc] makes a beautiful wave & mp3 file. Someone throwing out thier records after a transfer from a ceramic cartridge to a cd is a scary thought. http://www.bswusa.com/proditem.asp?item=USBMICROPRE

Funny, that picture looks more like a magnetic cartridge to me (albeit a low end one) I’ll stick with my linear tracking table and SB Live card though. (I really oughta pick up a few spare cartridges and stylii though)
