This is my first post and I thought I would share my purchase as this, (I think) is a pretty good deal.

This USB turntable allows you to convert your records to mp3's , connect it up to a home sound system or just play through the in built speaker or through headphones if you are feeling anti-social!

I have been searching for one for a while and most basic turntables are around £40. So at half the price, this is a bargain!!

The sound quality is good, it has 3 speed settings and is a nice size so doesn't take up too much room.

Found in Aldi, Hessle , assistant said they had a few more left.

I'll give the average person about 5 hours of waiting for LP's to play at normal speed while they record them, having to split the recording into the separate tracks and apply anti pop/hiss filters that don't work properly before they give up and go with digital downloads. Seems like a good idea on paper but I know 4 people that have them gathering dust.

yeah i'm still waiting for someone to produce a digitiser u attach to an existing turntable
Also see ION Audio, they do similar with good software. At one time they had 2x phono (Red and White RCA) unit to USB converter, again, it takes as long as it takes... set to 45 (for a 33.3333 LP) or 78 (for a 45) and quality will drop...
why this when you can download you x vinyl in better quality for next to nothing??

Mainly if you've got obscure LPs which cannot be found on the download sites.
Like the other poster said , in practice it is an enormous pain in the **** . Secondly if you value your rare vinyl why on earth would you use a £20 Christmas cracker toy instead of a turntable and amp connected to your sound card . But I commend anyone who is getting off the vinyl train. I have had my life is ruined by this stupid music media of all time

Not claiming this is a hot deal or the best around for the price, but they do exist.

How obscure is obscure? There's one band which I ended up buying on cd from Japan that I couldn't get any other way but other than that everything I've wanted has been online
Comments appreciated. However, as a twenty- something adult, who's first experience of buying and listening to music was via a Walkman cassette player, I missed out on the experience of vinyl.
This was not bought to play expensive vinyl, or even to convert the music to MP3 , as I agree, you can download it from the internet far quicker. However, for somebody who just wants to play a few of the records now and then, this is a bargain.

It doesn't claim to be top quality, however, for the price it is more than suitable for someone like me, who just wants to listen to the occasional record.

Today-20Th September. Earlier in the week it was being shouted out that Vinyl LP sales are at their best for 20 years
'The sound quality is good' erm, no. Cold!

Your taking about bands. I've got records that where that only ever had 500 copies made that would be impossible to find

Sorry to disappoint you but it's on its way back and a lot of bands are going back to Vinyl because you get a better sound not like mp3 which is compressed have a look at the links.
But i do agree with you in using an amp and record deck plugged in to your sound card to record to mp3.

I'd use it more for singles b sides that were never available on cd or are not on iTunes etc
Better sound with incredibly expensive hifi equipment maybe but for the average hipster buying vinyls it's not going to be pathway to better sound quality any more than their film cameras are a pathway to better photography of their starbucks purchases.It's just an excuse for being a fashion victim for a lot of people although obviously there are exceptions. There are plenty of kids out there with old 90's Sony midi systems with micky mouse needles bleating on about how vinyl sounds better.

“The two things that really drew me to vinyl were the expense and the inconvenience.”
