I would consider a Pro-Ject Debut III Phono. The turntable is available with built-in phono preamp, so can attach it directly to the line in of you soundcard.
Hello, I'm new to the forums.A few weeks ago I decided to rip most of my vinyl collection to my computer, however it was only last night after comparing some of my recordings to CD versions of the same album that I realized my turntable was playing slightly fast. I really know nothing about turntables or trying to repair them, but suffice it to say after my clumsy attempt I'd rather just opt for something not quite as cheap. I've become somewhat of an audiophile going through all of this, and as I said I'm pretty new to this. Should I be looking for belt driven or direct drive? A USB turntable? Could anyone recommend anything?Thanks!
