    USB record player... that you can record your vinyls to pc

    Hey guys

    My dad loves the idea of one of these, so I want to get him one for his birthday!

    You know, those record players you can plug in to your computer by USB and then record your vinyl records to your PC hard drive?

    Anyone know the best place/price to get one of these from?

    Thanks!

    Blimey, I haven't seen you on here for ages and ages.
    How are you doing?

    I'm not too technical, but you can do this if your Dad has a regular record deck and amplifier and you have a sound card where you can accept input to your pc.
    I don't know enough at the moment to help you fully, but I will be doing something similar once I get settled into this new house.
    Probably 5 years then. :w00t:

    Quite expensive, will he definitely use it?

    Got dad one when they first came out and I think he used it once! Really wanted it, has 1000s of records (actually had a cabinet specially built for them!) and loves computers, but just didnt have the time to transfer it all

    That is the big problem with these.
    As people don't tend to buy vinyl any more ( OK I know some people do ) then once the job is done, these things are redundant.

    I know it takes a lot of time to transfer your records 'cos you can't speed it up. You have to physically play each album and will take about 40 minutes to an hour for each one.
    If you have a half decent collection of say 700 records and did one a day, that will take you two years to complete. :w00t:

    Perhaps Kelly's Dad will sell you his. :thumbsup:

    Lol, he swears he will get around to doing it 'one day....'

    and as for 700 records making a half decent collection, I hate to think what dads couple of thousand records make!
