Hope this is the right topic for this question...
I’ve got some records that I’d like to convert to MP3. I’ve done some research on the internet and found two different pieces of hardware that I might be interested in. The Magix music cleaning Lab XXL and the Terratec Phono PreAmp Studio USB. http://site.magix.net/index.php?id=20800&no_cache=1

Link to Terratec
Both of them have a built-in preamp and connect to a turntable directly without the need of stereo-equipment.
The Magix hardware connects to the soundcard, the Terratec uses an USB connection.
Both of them come with software to record LP’s, the price difference is not an issue.
Added feature to the Terratec is the ability to record tape as well…
Added feature to the Magix is a wide range of software…
Does anyone use one of these gadgets? How do they compare?
Is the software any good, or should I use another program?
How much more black can it be? The answer is none... none more black.
