Yo! Santa brought me for X-mas and it rocks. It makes the whole vinyl digitizing process so easy. I love it!

By the way, do you of anyone who has upgraded the cartridge? I was contemplating doing that but I wasn't sure if it would work.

so, when you are ripping it, it goes directly to a format you choose? not wave first?
does it record faster than real time?

how is that different from those simple free prgorams nowadays that records audio from almost any source?

i remember many years ago-- maybe mid-late 90s-- i hooked up my cassette player to the back of the drive and recorded a del maxi single or something. it was so easy, but it was in wave format.
now they got like dbpoweramps or some other shits like that to record directly into mp3/wmv etc.

It's actually a lot different than those recording programs that are out.
For one, the USB-out from the turntable has a pre-amp in it, so you can go directly into your computer's sound card without having to use a mixer of any sort.

This makes getting good levels easier.

When you record vinyl, it outputs the recording in WAV format which I like the best.

And yes, it has a double speed function, where it will record the vinyl at double speed. This is a good time saver.

I used to record my vinyl the old fashioned way, but this is much simpler, direct, and faster.
