good deal for the item but all you need is a RCA lead from your record player audio out to the PC audio in

Most record players need a pre-amplifier and won't connect directly to a PC sound card, you will need a record player and amplifier with 'phono' input to connect to your PC

Does anyone know if it's any good?

Correct, thats why these usb turntable's do the job.

On the website it says that the connection is USB. What is the RCA/jack lead for?
#7
If it's a ceramic stylus setup and will probably sound quite poor, but the lack of spec and absence of the brand from anywhere except that page doesn't help.

Have previously convinced people to return their Prolectrix models and replace with Ion versions and they have all really noticed the difference.

Probably so you can use it a standalone turntable without computer on... RCA to amp.

Quite agree, and of course a copy of the free opensource Audacity software:thumbsup:

I use a Bush MTT1 mini turntable, this has a built in pre-amp, and outputs a nice clean sound, so is ideal for this use.I was lucky to get mine from a guy at boot sale that sells Argos pallet items for £5 new and sealed in a box, however if you don't have a suitable turntable available, then this is a fantastic deal at the price.

Heat added:thumbsup:

agreed re: sound quality, guess you cant expect much for £26....20 years ago paid approx £200 for just the stylus (as was a good make) and about £400 for the technics turntable...this was the time that elextronics were mega expensive......in alot of cases the price of mid range stuff today is the SAME as mid range 20 years ago...people these days are lucky....only the fairly wealthy could afford the lastest new products like games consoles such as the neo geo (was £150+ a game - rough guess thats near £560+ a game now!)
#12
and about £400 for the technics turntable..


Technics are still a bit pricey nowadays but their worth the money. The one thing I would say about these usb turntables is watch out for the ram on your laptop/pc recording in real time can sometimes causes bytes to dropout. You'll find out if this has happened to you once you playback the track.

What is it with you kids today: Are you all completely deaf???

Listening to overcompressed MP3s and music played through mobile phone speakers has entirely screwed a whole generation's concept of what good sound is.

With the majority of radio playlists a whole generation has no concept of what good sound is anyway, even their musical education consists of listening to artists doing covers of bad MOR songs i.e Glee, McEldery et all.

Actually, the Bush MTT1 is surprisingly good for the price - great if you've only got a few records to listen to/convert to digital format. I'll buy good (and relatively expensive) speakers and electronics for listening to music on, but I'm not going to spend much on a record player when I've got very few records which I seldom listen to.

What is it with the older generation - has listening to poor-quality formats like vinyl (technically inferior to CD) screwed their whole concept of what good sound is ;)

So, why would people keep the turntable and NOT keep the amplifier to connect it to?
Why on earth would anyone do that?

Technically inferior maybe, as for sound quality, nope. I was a relatively early adopter of the CD format and wished I would have waited, so many artists I bought on CD have had their CDs remastered because they originally sounded flat and lifeless.

Regardless of this, there is still a warmth about vinyl that is hard replicated on CD Players, especially budget ones. At least with your Bush turntable it was well received for sounding good for a budget turntable, how many CD players can you say that about.

Whilst my Vinyl collection has been rejected to the attic, I am at least glad I got a decent NAD CD Player which at least adds some warmth to the usually harsh and clinical sound that CD gives.

A lot of people are buying AV Receivers instead of Amps, recent AV Receivers do not have Phono inputs, therefore requiring a turntable to have a preamplifier if you wish to connect it.

With so much space taken up, unless you are a Vinyl connosieur with enough space in your house to accomodate a music rig as well as a home cinema rig, I can understand why people want to go this route, buying a Turntable with a preamp built in and transferring their vinyl digitally.

I am with you on that, but for a different reason, and some younger have already damaged their hearing too, so they are not such great judges as they think they are either!
I have had conversations with many people who THINK they know what they are listening to, but in reality they are kidding themselves :-(

At 51, I speak for most over 50s who if not already there, are well on the way to not being able to tell the difference between an wax cylinder and a 10,000 quid HiFi system... plain and simply because their hearing is missing so many of the frequencies they could hear when young.

As a musician, who has suffered loud volumes a-plenty, it has meant I have lost a lot more hearing than some, but I am from the first generation that has always had very loud amplified music available all the time, and it is paying it's dividends in hearing loss now.

Interesting article on hearing loss due to noisy pubs & clubs on Midlands Regional BBC just yesterday!

As a member of the old fogeys vinyl should never die group, I prefer viny most of the time...but some of the vinyl I have is not available on cd or even the major download providers,and I boy do I long to listen to the old skool in my camper van (only joking!)

Good price but go for a better spec if you want a better recording imho:

Unfortunately a lot of these 'remasters' sound like they've been 'engineered' to sound good on a 50 quid car stereo, over compressed and frequency response all over the place, I prefer the flat and lifeless originals generally!

Reviews say its crap sadly.

If you've already got a turntable & amp then a £1 lead from Poundland will do just as well - if you haven't then it's a good buy

Ehhh, I think you will find most AV receivers certainly do have phono inputs, got 10 on my Onkyo, as they have component inputs which necessitates composite inputs.

It's not just about buying one lead - its about everything else that goes with setting up your turntable and amp if it is packed away like mine - to pull it all out and hook it up to my laptop would be a right pain and to have it hanging around so I could transfer all my vinyl would also be a pain. This is a single usb device that looks like a convenient way to pull out and plug in when you have a moment to transfer some of your old classics.
Hot from me.

I did state RECENT AV receivers, take a look at the award winning Denon AVR-1910, no Phono Input on that, neither does the Onkyo TX-SR607, Yamaha RX-V565. The trend is to drop them on budget to mid range AV Receivers, along with S-Video Inputs.

They certainly have Phono Plugs (RCA) for 2 channel sound inputs, but certainly not a dedicated RCA PHONO input as I state, which is different as it has a ground wire connector, as well as being specifically pre-amped, so as I said they necessitate a turntable with a pre-amp to facilitate if no (dedicated) phono input.

If utilising a standard RCA input, the sound would be extremely faint, therefore a Pre-Amp is needed if your AV Receiver doesn't have a dedicated RCA Phono Input, like the receivers mentioned above.

Denon AVR-1910 No RCA Phono Input.

But what about those of use with no turntable and some old vinyl to convert.......

Would be interested if this item is any good though.

just presumed if you have vinyl you'd have something to play it on :whistling:

this lead is only good if you have a turntable and amp
