i used the terrec pre-amp comes with software to clean eveything up. leads to cassette/turntable then plugs into your usb port works a treat.only downside was you have to save everything as wav`s,however when you put the file into Nero to edit it you can save it as a MP3 anyway. As aside i did a 1966 vinyl to cd wedding recording for a friend.

no way are they going to sound anywhere near as good as the vinyl did when new.

Frankly, I have simply replaced the vinyl when reissued on CD, and most of them have. Otherwise, on the few rarities I have gone for one of the specialist firms who remaster with Cedar and convert to CD.

If is is simply size, I think you would be better off copying to mini-disc, especially as mono recordings only take up half the space as stereo.

or google. Good luck. Why CD's & not DVD's? -T

I bought Audio Cleaning Lab software, and a little phono preamp to hook up my turntable to the pc soundcard. I'm now in the process of transferring my mainly 70's vinyl to CD. It's probably not perfect, but I'm no audiophile so I'm happy. Added bonus is that I've bought some printable CD's and can finally make use of the printer's CD printing tray.
All-in each 'new' CD is costing me about 20p, rather than the fiver or tenner I'd have to pay for the pukka article. Happy Yorkshireman!

Incidentally all of the above apply to audio cassette tapes too - from tape to cd. I've done it and it works.
