bought one of these a while ago - really badly made and needle hopped all over the shop... ended up returning it and buying a different brand.

Was that all Lp's, as I know some of mine are scratched? How were the recordings? Bearing in mind that I'm not expecting the greatest sound, just reasonable before the Vinyl goes.

Well they've sat there for a few years now (100-150 of them) so if I can get 20 to 30 recordings from them its a plus.

Easily the cheapest that this product has been listed on HotUKDeals and I'm tempted, but not many rave reviews. Previous links:

If you have (or can borrow) a turntable with a phono stage (or an amp with a phone stage) and there is a sound card in your PC you should be able to digitise your records anyway, and it should be much better quality.

polishing **** springs to mind, does the frying bacon come with the converted MP3 and whats the point you can get any album on CD for me this is useless just like the vhs to dvd, its never going to be a quality digital recording.

You can't get everything on CD, the mastering is often different on vinyl (often CD releases are heavily compressed), some people might not want to buy all their records again and don't want to illegally download them. Finally it is perfectly possible to make a very good digital recording of an LP, there are plenty floating about on the internet if you know where to look.

With a good turntable and good equipment you can make excellent vinyl rips at high resolution that sound better than CDs. You can NOT do that with this heap of junk though, awful turntable and any transferred LPs will have no fidelity and lots of pops and crackles.
#11
This will almost certainly cause major damage to your vinyl whilst playing.
#12
yes dont get this is you want to make good mp3 out of your LP`s you will get what you pay for am sorry to say :(

and is it not true that if you convert your lp`s to mp3 then sell the lp`s you mite as well of just " illegally download them" as you will have to get rid of the mp3`s you made now you dont have the lps ?? :(

I used the ION one to convert mine, cant really comment on this kit, Reviews indicate its quite poor though. With the ION theres also a line in so you can jack a walkman into it and convert your tapes as well

1. That's nonsense
and
2. The quality from any recording made on this will be diabolical.

he means compressed as in no dynamics (see loudness war), not compressed like an mp3 file. although i guess it depends what type of music you listen to. classical, post rock and jazz type music is usually fine, but most mainstream releases whether it be metal, rock, pop, hip hop etc. are all compressed and sound like crap, releases from before 1992 were absolutely great though.

vinyl is less affected.

as for your second point absolutely this usb turntable will be a waste of money, just get a needle and rotate it around your vinyls you will get similar results for a fraction of the cost.

Eh? I accept the fact that modern music may be mastered for radio with lower dynamic range, but if something was mastered for vinyl XX years ago and is subsequently re-released on CD it won't be squashed as you are implying.

The post from alasrati suggested that copying vinyl on a piece of junk £17.99 turntable would be somehow better than listening to a CD version of the album. That is rubbish. Absolute rubbish.

When it comes to dynamic range vinyl has always been limited by the practical limits of the cutting process. Add to this the reality of vinyl playback that is a higher noise floor than CD then, regardless of theoretical possibilities, real world commercial vinyl always had a lower dynamic range than CD.

Don't misunderstand me; I like vinyl. A good vinyl pressing played on a high quality turntable can sound fantastic. But you would need to spend upwards of £500 on a turntable/arm/cartridge set up for it to sound nice. Anything played on this Veho VTT-001 usb turntable will be desperately unpleasant to listen to.

That something has been out on vinyl means nothing... you don't use the same master for CD anyway... and CD can be compressed to a point beyond which a needle would stay in the groove if you cut a record with the same source..

I've seen CDs that clip throughout.. zoom out a step or two in DAW you can't see a waveform... just a solid block... L1/2/3 Maximizer abuse..

You can get decent vinyl replay for less. How much is a Pro-ject 2 these days? I bought one for £50 not many moons ago..
