The Phonobox USB from Pro-ject: Tiny, Sexeh Analog Conversion

The Phonobox USB from Pro-ject (The same company that brought you the Debut 111 we reviewed recently) is an independent solution for those who want to magically convert their analog music (read "records") to digital files ripe for ipod-ification....

While there are a few new USB turntables skulking around the market, they are usually lower than bottom-of-the-line in quality as far as sound reproduction and frankly, you may already have a great table that you don't want to stack another on top of. USB hardware steals a noticeable share of the products' budgets and the quality of sound reproduction tends to get overlooked.

So why not hook your player directly into your computer's microphone jack? You can't unless your player has a built in preamplifier which most don't. What this little munchkin does is act as a go-between for your current player and your computer so you can finally achieve digital Bacharach. Make sure your disks are clean so you can get a good transfer unless you want the extra magic of cracking and popping…get the Phonobox USB from Pro-ject here
