Hello everyone, im in the process of trying to decide what kind of vinyl turntable to buy, not wanting anything really expensive, so im pulled towards the cheaper end of the market and was hoping for some advice.
Im just looking for a turntable that takes mainly 33 and 45,s, converts vinyl and/or cd to usb or mp3, has built in speakers and a headphone socket but with a loud enough sound system.
Was wondering if anyone has bought something similar from amazon or the like and what would they recommend. Ive seen many on amazon but just cant make my mind up, is it better doing the cheaper end of the market or do i really need to splash out to get decent quality and what should i avoid.
hoping to restart my stones vinyl collection and dig out old vinyl.
cheers in advance for any info given.
got a technics from early 80;s, just perfect
no need for usb and things, play the records )
Related, but a different tack: I have an old BSR turntable and a JVC turntable. Both were jacked into either a Marantz stereo receiver or Hitachi receiver (both of which I still have) with the connections for RCA plugs (1/4 inch) in the back of the receivers. The question: How can I use these turntables to load analog (vinyl) onto a computer? Do I need to jack the receivers to the computer in some way? Is there a convertor apparatus?
I was given an ION USB connection turntable a few years ago, but I put it away after a few tries at recording vinyl to the computer. Is it worth trying to hook it up again and record vinyl albums to the computer's hard drive? A daunting task for sure, since I have close to 2000 vinyl albums and they would need to be played and loaded into the computer at the normal playing time for the albums. It's why I currently play vinyl albums on an old Magnavox console hi-fi I have.
All help, suggestions, etc., appreciated.
