    Companies that will do recording for you ...


    My parents have a ____load of LPs that I'd like to put on CD for them but the process is a pain in the neck.

    I used to live in a city, and was on good terms with a record store owner, who had a contact who would transfer tapes onto cd.

    Perhaps you can find a local individual who can do that type of thing for a fee?

    The price was stiff ($25 for a 45 minute cd, made from one side of a 90 minute tape) and some disks had errors on a few tracks, but as you say, the job of digitizing old music and making "tracks" is a pain in the neck, if not actually beyond the capabilities of many people.

    why not just keep the vinyl? I have recently (about 18 months ago) bought a new turntable (rather than replace all my vinyl with CD) for my system and it sounds superb. OK you get some crackling (very little on records I have owned from new). Apart from that which is minor the sound quality is superb, obviously it isn't as convenient as a cd, you have to turn records over, but I wouldn't swap my records for CD's even if it was free.

    If it helps any: I have read several posts on Audioreview where people transferred vinyl to CD-R and 2 posters said they couldn't hear any difference between the CD-R and the original vinyl; the other two said the difference was audible but just so.

    John Watson:
    That is a stiff price -- and I'd expect them to put all they could on the disc, not just one side.

    Dave Stark:
    The vinyl WILL be kept, just stored away as it is now.

    Christ Reynolds:
    I've done the LD replacement thing, of course I only had 20 movies, the only unreplaced ones are either not available on DVD (Star Wars trilogy) or I just haven't bought/found it yet (I think Phenomenon and Who Framed Rogger Rabbit are the only 2 I don't have yet)

    Oooops ... :b

    Justin Lane:
    I've got a crazy setup on my stereo, it's just the work involved (# of LPs) that is the problem

    LanceJ:
    I've done transfers and don't notice anything



    BTW, Justin, my setup is like this:

    Source >RCA> Receiver >RCA> MD >Optical> CD-R >RCA> Receiver

    Source = you name it
    CD-R & MD = looped on Tape 2 in/outputs

    the only way to play MD is through the CD-R and the only way to record to CD-R is through the MD (or digi-link from CD)




    Yes, I have the equipment/know-how --- I just don't have the desire to sit there as long as would be needed

    Paul E V, can't you sell all the vinyl to a second hand store, that's my best source for buying records.
