Hello,

I would like to hear you suggestions regarding the choice of a turntable.

- Approx. budget 100~225 EUR
- Just to rip some vynils but I want to be sure to have good quality (I like natural sound, so no need for bass improvements or stuff like that).
- I'd like one with a pre-amp/line out (I have an Asus Xonar Essence STX soundcard and I trust line out more than USB, any reason this would be wrong ?)
-- I'd like to rip to .wav, I don't want any system that would force MP3 encoding (but If I can use direct line out instead, then I don't care about this).
- 45 rpm, 33 rpm
- Ideally it should be easily available for order in order.

Some models I have in mind after a quick search : Lenco - L-81 USB, Ion - Proflash, Ion - Profile LP, Pro-Ject - Debut III


Thank you for your help.

For everything you'd ever want to know about USB turntables, seeKnowzy.com

Any alterations to the sound would be done in software after digitizing. If you want to remove clicks & pops, check out this page for software suggestions. (I use Wave Repair ($30 USD). In the manual mode, it only "touches" the audio where you identify a defect, but usually takes me a full-weekend to clean-up a digitized LP... There are more-automated solutions.)

That's up to the software too, and you can almost always use the software of your choice with any hardware of your choice. Most recording software records to uncompressed WAV (or raw PCM), and then there's an option to compress when you save.

Thank you for you reply.
Yes but, I've read that some USB turntable force you to record in MP3 128 kbps for example. What I would have like is to have to model names I should avoid.
Also some model names that will be good, and also excellent in terms of sound quality.


Now, I'm still waiting for suggestions and opinions about the idea the pre-amp turntables.
