I imagine this is in-store, so probably no link.

I'm not sure how this is possible as the TT has not been on sale for quite some time therefore it`s a local deal not a national one.

Anyone know if this has built in speakers so can be used stand alone?

Does anyone know is it national?

I think it might have been around £30. The sticker said it was £129.99 which was so ridiculous I didn't mentioned it as most people would comment saying how ridiculous it was.

Possible it is from a previous offer. Was up getting bread and saw them and just picked one up. At £14.99 it would be rude not to buy one!

Wouldn't put a decent or valuable record through this, would damage the record. Save your money and buy a decent record player if you're actually looking into vinyl collecting, this isn't worth it.

I would have thought that this was obviously aimed at people who just have old records and want to convert them.

If you were into collecting vinyl these days the cost of one LP would probably be more than the cost of the turntable so why would you buy this to listen to your music? In fact I would expect to pay more for the stylus than the cost of the turntable!

Turntables costs vary like most things. You can get a Linn Products Majik Lp12 for around £1800.00 or this USB one for £14.99 and there are lots in between.

£14.99 for me. Ask in the store if it has been reduced, sometimes they just have not changed the price.

I got the Lidl one last week for £49.99, but it does have more features than this (SD card, usb playback, strobe speed adjustment), but a usb turntable for £14.99 has to be hot.

Thank you very much. It saved me lots of time because I have miles to Aldi.

No speakers USB,play through computer if it's the same as the last one they stocked.

Technics sl1200 or sl1210 are the best for around £300 a piece and never lose there value.

Merry Christmas.

This will do less damage to your records & it's only £10-00

Seriously buy a better record player & do it right. If you don't need the record player after the conversion just sell it on. The records you use may be old records but some may be what others will pay for.

Nearly bought that but not applied with a power lead. Cold.

Good deal for what it is so voting hot.

But if you're serious about collecting and playing records, it's not worth using something like this to risk damage. For a portable solution try a Crossley. I picked up a Third Man Records Crossley from Ameoba Records in Hollywood when I was over and for a portable with built in speakers, it's amazing. I grabbed a Bose Soundlink Mini to go with it, and it now goes everywhere with me. Albert King on the move has never sounded so good!
For a permanent home solution, I've a Project Debut Mark III which I've had for well over 10 years and it's also incredible. I remember only paying around £160 for it at the time, so they must be cheaper now. Either way, any solution which gets you onto records again, will make you love music again.
Merry Christmas

Or three, have a real system to even hear the tiny benefits of vinyl.

USB turntables are no better than low end MP3's, regardless of how "heavyweight" the vinyl is or good your speakers are(though if you are buying a usb turntable you don't have the speakers anyway), simply supermarkets cashing in on the bandwagon as they should, since most hipsters don't buy vinyl because they are audiophiles, they do it because it's now a trend le sigh. Continue educating me though.

I vouch for Technics. What I use, very very good.

that's what i was thinking... when i was a keen teen i used to spend weeks checking out the virtues of separates and just as much on the needle... how on earth is this going to be good foa the the vinyl collection? more to the point, surely i can i just dig out my old turntable from the attic, crank up the steam power and just buy cables to connect this to an amp? and has anyone here ever connected their pc to an 1970s hifi system?

You would need a pre-amp for the record player & if you have a stereo line input on you computer that will do the job. You could also use the out connection on the Hi Fi to the computer. However many laptops don't have stereo input so a usb converter
This is one example there are a lot more probably much cheaper but most would still need a pre-amp if only the turntable is used.

Bargain, vinyl seems to be making something of a comeback these days too.

Great value

I don't get fit. Why on earth would anyone want theirs in MP3 format. I like my vinlys the way they are and sound.... just keep your turntable

Well at risk of stating the obvious, if she doesn't have an amp and speakers you'll need those too. Or if she has some sort of stereo set up already and it has some sort of audio input socket you will probably still need a phono pre amp (tiny little box, allow 50 quid). Assuming you're looking to buy new I would say go for any of the budget Project record decks. They start at around 150 quid and you won't go far wrong with any of them. If you wanted to spend more there are excellent alternatives but at that price point I would say it's the best option.

Bought a Technics SL1210 mkIII many years ago with the intension of using it to convert my large vinyl collection into lossless audio. Sadly it's been in storage since. What other hardware and software would I need in addition to the turntable and a desktop PC (at present just has sound card built-in to motherboard) in order to get the best quality possible without spending a small fortune?

£15 a decent price if it's for nostalgia purposes, converting your once loved records to digital format.

Otherwise, not a good option if your records are valuable to you or you want to regularly play them through this unit.

If you're serious about your vinyl and want to start buying and building up a collection, go for a half decent amp, speakers and turntable set up. You get what you pay for when it comes to equipment, I personally wouldn't recommend this USB thing if you're precious about your records.
