Hi :) Here's the thread from the last time it was posted (now £4 cheaper) , you may find some info in that thread that will be useful http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/436682/veho-vtt-001-usb-turntable-29-99-4-/

Will this work with OSX?

Personally, I have just boxed one of these back up to go back to the shop. Needles are useless and the swing arm is too light. It would play for about 20 seconds then scratch right across the vinyl.

Changed the needle to the spare they supplies and it was even worse.

Way too light and feels like a toy to be honest.

Gonna get one that is a bit more sturdy if anyone can recommend one.

Apparently the ION ones are ok.


This deal is a real case of 'you get what you pay for'.

Wouldn't bother, voted cold and for that reason.... i'm out ;)


Just a side note, it won't actually convert to MP3 either with the software supplied. You would have to use diff software.
#5
i've never understood this....

whats the problem with playing a record thru your mixer or whatever, then into the line-in on your soundcard and recording and saving it with audacity ( http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ )

is this just for noobs?
#6
I sold my turntables otherwise this would have been the route to try.

Not sure if there is a quality diff in recording. This just makes it a very plug n' play set up.

In my heyday (long, long ago :p ) If the arm was skating across the top of a record, we would stick a coin or couple of coins on top of the head to weigh it down a wee bit, that usually did the trick. Also helped stop records jumping when we were dancing around like loonies. :whistling:

Strangely, there are some people who don't have a turntable, or a mixer, or even a soundcard with a line in!

lol... I actually did that. I used to strap a 2p on to the stylus if I was gonna be scratchin ha ha.

With this one I placed the 2p on the stylus whilst thinking "I know what to do with this problem" but coz the belt drive is **** it just slowed the whole thing down to a stop. I even tried it with a 5p... no luck. Slowed it down, then skated across. But because it was heavier I now have a lovely scratch across my Strings Of Life Rythym is Rythym Original Press.

What is this thing...............Turn.........table....................a table that turns how was this used? was it used to serve food on?.........swing arm is that a cricket term?.......Vinyl.....sorry lost me completely on that one is it like those funny little silver disc's you used to get what were they called... oh yes CD's?
#11
"What is this thing...............Turn.........table............"

lol.
#12
There's no info on bitrate or quality of the MP3 output. My guess is it is quite poor. Would be more interested if it was capable of uncompressed Wav or lossless codecs like Flac, but I guess it is limited by the data bus speed.
#13
It does output to uncompressed WAV and lossless Flac, but not to MP3 (without plugin anyway)

But only if you make it across the whole record without it skating lol.
banned#14
^^^

sounds like too much effort when you consider that the music has probably been re-released on CDs and mp3's but hey i'm not voting either way because i know nothing about this subject
#15
Its really for if you have a load of records that you want to port across to MP3's. Saves paying to get them again.

However, you'll still have trouble doing it on this coz its crap. How its hot god only knows.
#16
Turn table?
Something you do in a dining room?
Vinyl?
Something you put on a kitchen floor?
Stylus?
Something done by a hairdresser?

Old quality turntables cost a lot of money............this cheap one will possibly not do justice to your record collection.

I don't want to open a can of worms but if you have already paid for music in one format then is it ok to download the mp3. Ok I guess it isn't but the net effect is that you would have a similar file to the one created using a USB turntable.

I've got an Ion TTUSB05XL and have found it works really well with Audacity on Kubuntu 8.04 and converting the resultant files to ogg. I do have a proper Pro-ject turntable as part of my hi-fi, but that is downstairs and the computer is upstairs.
#19
If a "friend" has the same LP on CD, are you breaking any laws if you borrow the CD and rip that to mp3 instead? I must admit I have done this and assumed i was okay 'cos I own an original recording of the same piece of music.
#20
Is this the same thing... http://www.guardianoffers.co.uk/mall/productpage.cfm/guardianoffers/_TRUVTT001/-/Veho-VTT-001-Piano-Black-USB-Turntable ...the guardian were offering this product for £12.95!

Also, for those interested, there are some reviews on Amazon : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Veho-VTT-001-Music-Turntable-converter/dp/B001H30RDE
#21
Like the procedure previously mentioned I've always hooked up my turntables to my soundcard via my mixer's phono leads.
I've also used my USB Cassetter player (from ION) and hooked up the turntables through this to my PC.

Incidentally it's probably the slowness of my system but its a pain when scratching and hearing the sound a second later through my pc speakers due to the latency factor.

12.95 is just for a spare stylus.
#23
Voting lukewarm. Lovely price but these are notorious for having an uneven platter which forces the arm to skate across it whenever it is in motion.
#24
Maplin have the USB tape decks but I think they are mono.
#25
Personally, I use a CDR deck (Pionner PDR609) as part of my hi-fi set up to record vinyl onto CD, then rip it to MP3. A bit long winded but easier than connecting my turntable up to my PC.
And as for everything being available on CD or MP3, you'd be surprised how much is not available on these formats, and hey why should I pay for an MP3 of something that i already own.
#26
I just hook up my old Sherwood deck up to my sound card.

Probably needs a bit more user intervention than these kind of things, dividing tracks and so on, but unless my turntable dies on me i don't see the point forking out on one of these. It's a good price, but unless the end result's right it's probably a bit of a false economy.

What I've done in the past is got together with the wife getting the old vinyl out, then taken turns to do a track at a time. Get a bottle of wine on the go and it's a cracking way of whiling away a rainy day.
#27
It looks a bit cheap and nasty. If you want to convert your vinyl to mp3 or to a cd etc i'd recommend spending a little bit more for a better quality turntable. I used a Numark TTUSB to do my collection and the sound quality was superb.

#28
Avoid this, it's appalling. The platter moves up and down by huge amounts, the stylus skips on perfect records and the music reproduduction is appalling.

I returned mine to Scan and got an immediate refund, they didn't dispute anything I said.

I've now got a 2nd hand Ion and it's brilliant. The same records don't jump and the vocals don't sound like a cat with swine flu.
#29
A good deal if you don't mind crap quality and scratching your vinyl. Not voted.

Well, you need to already have a turntable, a 'mixer'(?) and you'd need to have amplification of your phone stage before going into the line in. If you have a redundant record collection in the attic, and this USB thing worked you could make use of it.

Aw poo! I remember actually sitting at the radio in the mid 70s, when the top 40 was on every sunday evening, with a cassette recorder in one hand, holding the wee microphone on the twirly wire, up to the speaker, to record my favourite songs. Everyone in the room had to be silent LOL. Those were the days ;)

ha ha, they were indeed the days. Kids nowdays don't even know they are born lol. We had to use real (and illegal) initiative.
#34
I purchased one of these, on a whim, whilst in HMV. I took it back at the next opportunity having had the same problems as others listed here - the needle just swings across the record making the recordings worthless. I have a new (much better) deck coming soon. Unfortunately, I could not stretch to a usb deck with a direct drive turntable, but the one that I have ordered looks as if it may be okay......
fingers crossed
