Best way to transfer vinyl LPs to Vault music library

    Hi Rand

    Our good friends at NAD Electronics make some fine turntables. You will also need an NAD PP4 phono preamp with a USB port so you can store the digitised files to a Windows PC. The PP4 comes with encoding software.

    I do plan to equip myself with a turntable and preamp. I was thinking more about what comes after that. I run Linux at home, not Windows. The Audacity audio-recording package runs on Linux. I was thinking of using that to digitize the sound. (Is there anything better?) And then do I burn a CD and have the Vault rip it?  I want to do this cut by cut and re-create the album metadata.  Or is there a direct computer-to-Vault-library method that doesn't go through a CD?

    I don't plan to get rid of the LPs, I just want to be able to call at least some of them up from the Vault instead of lowering a needle on them.
