Excerpt: When I saw this turntable with USB drive recording I went for it. I have a lot of vinyl that I haven't listened to for years. It's a little tricky to know when to start recording but it works really well. Not too happy with the software. I found using Audacity freeware is great for editing. As for iTunes, iTunes doesn't like anything not recorded with iTunes. I am having trouble bringing the music into my iPod.
Summary: The Denon DP-200USB is a fantastic turntable that does what it is supposed to do; convert your vinyl to MP3. The built-in MP3 converter is very convenient and works well. The only concern I have with the turntable (and it is a BIG concern in my opinion) is with the software that comes with the turntable. While the Track Splitter works well, the Track Identifier software only identifies about 1/4 of the songs on an album.
Pros: Converted vinyl has great sound, providing your vinyl is in good condition. Of course if your vinyl is beat up you do hear crackling on your converted MP3.
Cons: Track Labeling software functions poorly at best.
Summary: I am definitely enjoying my Denon DP-200USB turntable. I have quite a collection of 33LPs that I have been wanting to digitize for some time and the DP-200USB is making that pretty efficient. I have converted more than a dozen LPs to CD now and I have the process down fairly well. Operationally, everything is conveniently located on the front of the turntable: the USB port and port on/off switch; the 'record' on/off switch and the automatic turntable start/stop buttons.
Summary: This unit really works & works well. I have at least 75 LPs in great shape that I haven't heard in years. After only one recording to an 8g flash drive, I am sold. The recording is flawless! The set up is easy and a snap to use. It does have a stylus guard but lacks a tone arm clip for security. Other than that I have no reservations and Crutchfield's service is second to none.
Summary: Very easy to use and sound quality was excellent. Transferred file to my iTunes with no problem. I haven't loaded the software and tried splitting the songs yet, but I imagine that will simply be tedious rather than difficult.
Summary: This turntable allows me to record my records directly to a USB memory stick then transfer the recorded song to any computer. There is no need to connect the turntable directly to a computer, which works for us because the room where I play records does not have a computer. There is no cue lever with this turntable so while starting play at the beginning of a side is fully automatic, if you want to start at the third track you must place the needle by hand.
Summary: Sound from my old LP's is very good. I've got it connected to the phono-in on the stereo amp. +'s Easy to use. Software is great. You can split tracks from the USB files and ID them... brings in the artwork too! -'s Does not stop recording automatically when the record is finished, so you have to watch over it. Doesn't have a power on light.
Summary: I purchased this specifically for transferring vinyl recordings to my computer. I initially panicked when the instructions stated compatibility was Windows XP, 2000 or Vista, but I charged ahead and installed it on my Windows 7. It works well, just a little complicated in the transferring of your music, but overall quite satisfied. Suggestion to manufacturer: A good feature would be to have power button illuminated when unit is on!
