I want to get my old 33 1/3 LP vinyl albums back in service and am looking for a good LP turntable. I also want to be able to connect whatever turntable I get to my PC in order to digitize the audio to .MP3 format. The two turntables on Amazon that seem to meet this requirement and get the best reviews are the Audio Technica AT-LP60USB at about $100 and the Audio Technica AT-LP-120-USB at about $250.00.
The LP60USB at $100 doesnâ€™t really suit me because it lacks a number of features which I want, such as a counterbalanced tone arm and anti-skating feature. On the other hand, $250 seems a little steep to get the LP120USB model which does have those features.
Can anyone here recommend a good turntable that would do what I am looking for (preferably including the software to connect it to my PC) for less than $250.00? If I end up having to pay that much, I will do so but I want to make sure that I am not overlooking a good choice at a lower price. Thanks for any feedback.
