I just got the Crosley CR249 for my birthday...Is there anyway to attach this set to a stereo system to make it sound better?

I posted samples from a CR249 in another thread. Have a listen and I think you'll find it sounds very similar.I'll give you the same advice I gave someone else on my site: Return it now before it's too late to get a refund!There are other USB turntables in that price range with a better moving magnet cartridge. Brands include Audio-Technica, Sony (both use aluminum platters- not plastic) and Ion Audio (don't get the portable- more ceramic).The next jump in sound quality is around $300 where you'll find better analog turntables and DJ USB turntables.
