I have a large crate of albums I've been thinking of converting. But honestly i've loved CD's since I switched from vinyl. I never liked the hiss & pops and and honestly do not understand the "vinyl resurgence". But I do plan to capitalize on it and sell a few albums I've saved. If you have warped albums I'd plan on buying digital versions as the warps effect the recording speed.
But I also planned to buy something like this...http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/678650-REG/Ion_POWER_PLAY_USB_TURNTABLE_Powerplay_LP_Vinyl_To_MP3_USB.html
or to price shop...http://electronics.pricegrabber.com/turntables/Ion-Powerplay-LP-Vinyl-MP3/m780759895.html/search=usb+turntable/st=product/sv=title
But Pete it looks like your DAK mixer will do the all it needs even removing the hiss, click, pops, and scratches, as well not having to add spces between each song. Pink Floyd albums are great for each song flowing into the other and this DAK mixer will handle that. I say a sweet deal for $69. But, I'd by my own turntable. You've done your homework.
Bruce nice item you posted too. It will allow one to use thier phonograph thay have already.
FWIW I've recently bought DVD copying software, and I can understand your need to chat with others on this. I've converted my CD's to a HDD, as well as my DVD movies.
On a seperate note this item looked interesting if you've got VHS tapes you want to digitize.http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/easy-vhs-to-dvd/standard/overview.html?source=msn
It also will do LP's.
