Click Each To See The Top 3 Reasons Not To Go USB
Click To See Reason 1 - Why Not To Buy a USB turntable.
Why Not USB 1? Your PC already has a built in sound card that's likely better than what's in a USB turntable. So, why pay $69 or $99 for a USB turntable that includes a $30 sound card?
How much can be left for the turntable quality? Does it have an aluminum platter or does it only have a plastic platter? Does it have a damped cuing arm, or no cuing arm at all? Does it have anti-skating for center of the groove sound? Does it have a magnetic cartridge with an elliptical diamond stylus? It's all about the sound you want to copy to digital. Only use a magnetic cartridge with an elliptical diamond stylus gives you flawless digital copies. You'll hear the difference big-time. And, does it even have a counterweight for stylus weight setting for stylus and record protection?
Why Not USB 2? Are they kidding or what? Many USB turntables now come with an old-style cheap ceramic cartridge. Wow, I haven't seen ceramic cartridges since the 70s.
Sure they're cheap. But nobody will defend the sound quality of a ceramic cartridge compared to a magnetic cartridge, nobody. And, 100% of your sound quality is determined where the stylus meets the groove. And you're going to hear the difference big-time with an old style cheap ceramic cartridge. Plus, ceramic cartridges have spherical needles, not elliptical diamond styluses that aren't good for your LPs or your sound. You're going to listen to your copies hundreds of times. Don't listen to bad sound. Give them broadcast quality. Digital is great.
