Audio-Technica turntable system enables digital transfer of vinyl

Audio-Technica has introduced the AT-LP2D-USB LP-to-digital recording system, a complete USB turntable and software package for transferring vinyl records to digital media files and CDs. The AT-LP2D-USB includes a turntable with phono cartridge, PC- and Mac-compatible software, a USB cable that connects the turntable directly to a computer and other accessories.

The turntable features fully automatic operation and a 33-1/3 and 45 rpm speed selector. It's designed to deliver high-quality sound, with a balanced aluminum platter, precision dual magnet stereo cartridge with replaceable stylus and a pickup arm with soft damping control. The turntable's supplied USB cable enables plug-and-play connection to a desktop or laptop computer, and its built-in switchable phono preamp, RCA output cables and adapter cables allow connection to any typical home entertainment systems as well as to A/V receivers that do not include a dedicated phono input.

Cakewalk PYRO (for PC) and Audacity (for Mac or PC) software is included to convert the audio on a record to MP3, WAV or Windows Media audio files. The PYRO software also features DeClicker and DeNoiser utilities that automatically remove pops, clicks, noise and hiss from LP recordings as well as design software for creating personalized CD jewel case artwork and CD labels.

The Audio-Technica AT-LP2D-USB LP-to-digital recording system is available now.
