Thats how NAD describe the product, im sure the digital circuit only relates to the USB output tho. Otherwise its a normal phono stage.

NAD is very good. .hot deal.

This kind of pre-amp will boost the signal coming from a record player, so that it plays correctly on a device that doesnt have a phono input, like powered speakers or an AV receiver.

Thanks for your explanation. Does all pre amp comes only with phono input?

No this one in particular also has a line in input to plug in other devices, phones, cd player or computers etc.

If you don't need moving coil I'd go for the Rega for £10 less, also available on Amazon:

perfect timing op, much appreciated! heat!

Not sure about this as I can't find any information about what AD converter or bitrate/frequency the device supports on the USB side.
Normally you get a load of tech specs like at the bottom of the webpage for this preamp for example.

Just needed for cassettes really, a good idea?

I'm deliberating about this. I have a large vinyl collection I've been meaning to convert to digital for a while now.
Thought this included a full conversion software, but seeing kester76's post above it's just a lite version - need to spend another £29 for the ability to create MP3 or ACC.

Are there other cheaper (or better) software options for a Mac?

Or do I need this amp? Already have a full hifi setup, but my amp (Marantz PM6004) doesn't have USB out. Are there other ways to hook up to my Mac?

Looking for convenience really, but don't want to go down the cheap ION USB turntable route.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
