I got the feeling they meant they THEY didn't stock such a device but low and behold they DID stock tape to Mp3 devices....Hmm! 

Hah! No comment lol.  Hopefully Rob's suggestion will work for you.  Now that I understand what you're wanting to do, I would have pointed you towards something like the Alesis USB Phono Preamp:

...or this similar device from Behringer:

Alesis and Behringer are respected names in the semi-pro audio field and some of their electronics tend to be (a lot) cheaper than equivalent products made by HiFi manufacturers, but do the same job.

RE: Tape to Mp3 Mac?

Assuming that the questions about digitising to MP3 were asked when the turntabale was purchased I'm amazed as to why the dealer didn't offer the option of the Pro-ject Carbon USB, which comes with an in-built usb output as well as the phonos.

Oh and for a good quality reasonably priced cable, a 3.5mm to phono cable from ThatCable would be fine and is £3.99 for a 1 metre length (incl P&P)

The_Lhc I believe used to have the Pro-ject Phono Box which is now £130, as is the NAD PP3i, the Rega Fono Mini £85 and the Behringer UFO202 £29 - all those prices are from amazon.

RE: Tape to Mp3 Mac?

Many of Pro-Ject's prices have rocketed, not sure if it's tax, exchange-rates, higher costs at their end, or all of the above. You only have to look at the Debut, which was their budget turntable costing about £130, then when its price started to creep-up towards £200 they introduced the Genie which occupied the Debut's old price-point, and even that's passed £200 now.
