Both links working for me. Tried to make the Scan link clickable, but can't seem to get that to work in the OP. Here it is again:

The weakness is that it has a ceramic cartridge. OK for transferring old and tinny 45s but likely to disappoint if you want to recapture the great analogue sound in many classical LPs. But then you would have paid more for the cartridge then this whole thing.

Best and cheapest solution is to hook up your old turntable/amp (if you have acces to one) to your PC. Tape output to Line-In may do the trick - though i have found a surprising number of PCs will only do mono. The same great Audacity software is free to download.

Otherwise get a decent quality USB turntable with a moving magnet cartridge (about £80/100), impress your elderly friends/relatives and recoup most of your dosh by selling it on when you have transferred everything (or earn a few bob/get access to great collections by providing a service to them).

Agreed, the preamp with a decent turntable would be my first option for optimum audio fidelity, although a bit over the top if you only have a few discs to convert. However, the selling point with this rig is the ability to handle 78s, which the pricier usb turntables will not. I would have killed for something like this a few years ago while my dad was still alive as he had a small collection of obscure shellac discs which will never see the light of day on vinyl, let alone cd. Back in the day, I stuck a mike in the trumpet of a wind up gramophone and recorded to cassette tape and he seemed pleased enough with that. This would have been so much better.

Agreed - almost perfect for 78s. Unless you can find a USB turntable sporting a thorn stylus. That would sound so much better - or are you one of those aficionados who go for steel ;-)

Great buy for 30 sheets.... These used to be a ton

does it have pitch control?

i wonder when this will happen to current optical media

does this play divx?

Nope. This has a very cheap ceramic cartridges, whereas the £100 ones have much better cartridges. This is cheap, but I voted cold as I really don't think it's good enough.

Look on their ebay shop you can gt a 3 pack of stylus for £5.49 220323418792.

Three or four years ago, when I attempted to convert my vinyl to a digital format, I had one of my turntables running through my mixer into my laptop. I was using Audacity. Gave it up quite quickly though with the mincing around with levels etc for every single record that I wanted to convert.

I would have thought that things have moved on with the software, but be warned, the entire process can be a proper faff, especially if you want to get decent quality conversions. If anyone's got any better solutions, please let me know as I pretty much gave it up as a bad lot. Now the missus is giving me a load of old wotsit about having 'all these records around', I am keen to get them digitised, with as minimal fuss as possible.

I used to do it by connecting my decks to my mixer, and then my mixer to my PC. I then adjusted the levels on my mixer when recording and then adjusted the levels in Cool Edit Pro (Now Adobe Audition) afterwards. It takes a while but what else can you do?

Note that Audacity includes a 'Speed Change' utility - I recorded some 78's at 45rpm on my 'posh' two-speed turntable, then converted them to 78rpm. Then applied the Audacity's 'Noise Reduction' and (after a bit of experimentation with the settings), created some good audio.

I bought the Veho usb hub+fan when it was on special at Scan for £5.

Best £5 I've spent for ages.

Try Creative, I had a program with my old mp3 player and converted all my old singles to disc using my hifi turntable via leads to PC

Is there a CD adaptor with this like you used to get for ex-jukebox singles ?

Good price , but i agree about audacity , i gave up on it myself - to much hastle.there's a couple of easy ways to do it though , A cd recorder , which granted not many people have , or a good alternative is to use a dvd recorder straight to disc . It will just record the audio , so you can then play it back through the tv (with no picture obviously) or
straight into the back of an amp/stereo . I have tried this , it works great .

I have also found Audacity to be very hard work. I suppose that with my Panny HD DVD recorder, I could record onto HD, edit around a bit and then speed copy onto a disk. Had never thought of that

This is a very good price. Last time I wanted one of these it was £110

Yes. Unfortunately whichever method you use it will involve a bit of hard work to get the best out of it. Audacity is very capable but a bit overwhelming for the beginner. There are a few alternatives, but most are not free. Here are a couple of freebies:

a) ] Wavepad. Basic version is free for Mac or Windows

b) ]HarddiskOgg. Basically for ripping CDs but should work with a line in. Windows only.

c) ]Exact Audio Copy. More for editing the WAV files once captured. You can use Windows sound editor to capture if you really do not like Audacity. Windows only.

d) ]Koblo Studio Looks more like a sound editor, but has an import function so might also work. Cleaner interface than Audacity. Manual available ] here. Windows, Mac and source code available.

For those with Macs using Toast, don't forget Spin Doctor and Soundsoap, which you get bundled with the CD burning software. Much easier to use than Audacity.

I also came across this oddity on my travels. ] Tunatic for Mac and Windows will try to identify unknown songs from snippets you upload to its server. Might come in handy if you have an old recording on tape which you have forgotten to label.

Good price but MISCO are terrible when it comes to returns and replacements.

Just got mine yesterday from Scan (free shipping). It's absolutely appalling and is going straight back. The turntable moves up and down dramatically when turning (it is seated correctly), making records skip constantly. When you can get a passage to play it sounds like the vocals are being sung by canaries, vocals warble all over the place.

Avoid this like the plague and get a different model or alternative solution as suggested by others.

I stumbled across this this morning on Scan; was contemplating buying.

Currently using the Bush MTT1 bought from Argos way back when, which I guess is better (not worth the upgrade)?
