  • Summary: When I first saw this item I went "Ooooh, that would be cool to be able to listen to my LPs on my iPod." Then it dawned on me. I could listen to my LPs on my turntable!

  • Summary: I have used this device for two or three years now with the Audacity software bundled with it and have been able to transfer out of print, treasured vinyl material to my computer and burned to a cd or on to an IPod. I recommend it very highly.

  • Excerpt: The sound is not as good as just playing the record from a normal record deck.

  • Summary: Installing and using the turntable is very easy, but installing the software for Mac one find out that only the EZ audioconverter can be used in stead of the EZ Vinyl converter. Features for iTunes doesn't work anymore and recording of vinyl will take a long time. I really think the advertisements are too shiney but the software and help/faq is really garbage. It's a pity to experience.

"Waste of money"

By a customer from hotmail.com, zzounds.com
15 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Sound quality from the cartridge is poor, no tracking or skipping adjustments. The tonearm is too light with no counterweight adjustment so it is very prone to skipping and jumping. Waste of a hundred bucks.

"Be prepared for huge headaches and lots of wasted effort."

  • Excerpt: So far I've only heard it through built-in computer speakers, so I'll err on the side of giving it full credit for sound quality.

  • Summary: I am quite happy with this turntable. It is making a simple job out of a stack of vinyl transfers, though it does take some time to clean up the recording. I'm using the Audacity software (which is freeware, btw) that was bundled with it. It's pretty powerful for noise removal and editing, but not as straightforward as one might wish. I had hoped to use the Gracenote software to auto-label the tracks, but you can't have everything.

Gridley, Rate it all!
11 July 2008
  • Summary: When I first received this product, I had several problems for which there was no truth-in-advertising warning. I tried to hook it to my computer with a 12 foot USB cable, so I could keep the turntable linked to my stereo. I was able to obtain a signal, but very faint. The cure here was to set the turntable next to my computer and attach with a much shorter USB cable (which meant I had to move my printer). My next problem was intermittent static.

  • Summary: This is one of the easiest turntables to use. Operation is simple and you can learn quickly what and how to make a recording. The software that came with the turntable, is so easy to master that a child can do it all in a matter of minutes. The few problems that I have had in using the turntable and software were my own mistakes by hitting the wrong button. You do have to pay attention to what you are doing.
