I wouldn't mind being able to rip some of my vinyl just for the fact that it would be nice to have Mp3's for on-the-go. My turntable has no USB outputs as those things weren't even a dream back in the late 70's. I had an old HP PC that was marketed as a "media center" and I could run a cable across the house, plug it into the sound card (yes, it had one of those) and record with included software. It has long since passed on, replaced by a gaming rig/desk top I built. My current receiver is connected to my network, I can see it it in the device manager, but I don't really know what to do with that.
Is my only choice to invest in another turntable that includes USB outlets?
My other thought is that I have another PC I built myself last year that I have never used. I was thinking that if I could Incorporate it into my media area, there has to be software that would allow my to do this. I believe the PC has more that enough processing power to do this.
What are your thoughts?
