Note: This post involves the subject of copying records to CD. The purpose of this is for making a durable, long-lasting, and most importantly, usable copy of the records, and will only be done for records personally owned, with the CD copies not being sold or distributed. However, if this violates the rules here about copying/pirating/bootlegging/etc...I understand. (Don't agree, but understand. ) OK, now to my actual question. As explained in my note, I want to make copies of records onto CD. The main reason for this is that records just aren't really practical these days; they can only be played in the home. My parents have a large record collection and never listen to them anymore. They do, however, listen to CDs in their cars, and would listen to these record-copy-CDs, too. Now they still have a working turntable. It's an Onkyo (I believe) and I know it's more than 20 years old, but I don't know it's exact age just now. I figure I should be able to make copies of the records by connecting the turntable to the phono input of a receiver, and connecting an output, like the tape-out, of the receiver to the inputs of a sound card in a computer, then use some sound recording program, and possibly some kind of de-hiss or de-pop software, finally burning it to a CD-R. My question is, will this older turntable still be good enough for the task? Would buying a new turntable give me noticably better sound? I wouldn't want to buy anything expensive, as once I'm done making the copies, I wouldn't have any further use for the player. I might be willing to spend up to $200 if it would give truly noticably better results. (And not necessarily for a brand-new unit, either; I'm always willing to buy high-quality, good-condition used equipment to get something better for less).
