These are pretty good, I converted a few records and was happy with the outcome. They also do a VHS and Cassette version with the relevant software included etc..

I've just done two albums and the quality seems OK. Not as good as CD, but then again the source wasn't CD so can't expect miracles.

Also, you don't need to use it once. It has some audio cables so you can connect it to a modern hi-fi - I'm going to throw away my old hifi with turntable that I was keeping just for records.

Use any old walkman, 3.5mm headphone cable at both ends in to your computer (http://****.co.uk/1-2M-3-5mm-3-5mm-Jack-Audio-IPOD-AUX-MP3-Gold-Cable-/270667941502?pt=UK_CE_MP3Access_RL&hash=item3f0511067e), open-source Audacity software to record.

I just plug my vinyl player into my integrated amp with its phono plug then from the record out of the amp to my laptop and use audacity.

Why you'd want to use a cheap, poor quality turn table instead of one you've already got i have no idea.

I think it's made for people who don't know how do that. Heat added, good price!

no the source was better than cd ... vinyl is way better than cd .. and to have the cheap piece of plastic make a mockery of your music is an injustice imo :(

not having a go at you .. just how i see it :)

haha yeah. 1 lead to your amp from your existing record player and 1 lead to your laptop. But products like this has a market because people aren't educated.

I think it's meant for the older generation who are just not as up to date with technology, and some people may not have an amp? Doesn't mean they aren't educated.

Good price - cheapest I could find this a month ago was £29.99 online @ Maplin. Decent results - although unless your vinyl is in A1 condition it does pick up every snap, crackle & pop. Had to locate some software online to remove unwanted crackles.

If you have a vinyl collection, you'll have a vinyl player. You need to connect it to something to listen to said vinyls such as an integrated amplifier. Most integrated amplifiers have a record out.

The older generation would know this.

My old hi-fi system and turntable are boxed away and even if they weren't, they'd not be in the same room as my desktop. Its a simple matter of convenience for me.

Just out of interest, I have a VHS player - without buying the above version

Can anyone confirm what I need to do to transfer all my vhs to the pc?

Just need the leads info and what free software that will do the transfer

any help accepted with thanks

cheers G

Well I'm 43 and brought up with HiFi because of my two elder brother's influence, however when I divorced a few years ago my wife took the turntable leaving me with... no turntable. This would be ideal for the vinyls I've got that I can't get on CD. The stylus is probably pants, but it's better than having them stuck in the loft not getting some air play time, so yes it's cheap and cheerful but it still does a job at a convenient price if you haven't got the tools and don't want to buy a high quality turntable that you'll probably never use again.

At £40-£50 they're overpriced but this is about right in my opinion.
