Turntable for converting LPs to digital
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I am looking for a setup to convert my classical LP collection to CD. I've seen a whole lot of really cheap USB turntables on Amazon and elsewhere, but suspect the sound quality would be terrible and I'm also worried that the louder sections of music would get clipped, as there tends to be a lot more dynamic variation in classical music. At the same time, I don't have sufficient budget to go for the top of the range. None of the turntables with good reviews by What Hifi seem to have USB connections. A few of years ago I bought a setup including a Project debut and some kind of preamp, but it was faulty and I had a lot of trouble with the supplier so I ended up sending it back for a refund. The whole thing cost about £250 and I don't want to go much above that now, in fact would prefer to pay less if possible.
I was wondering about one of the cheaper Pro-ject turntables - Essential or Genie 2/3, but how could I connect this to a PC? Or is there a USB turntable that anyone could recommend?
Alternatively, I have an ancient Dual 505-2 turntable which has been gathering dust for years as it doesn't work (it's just dead - nothing happens if I plug it in and I fear an electrical fault). I don't know if there is any possibility of getting that fixed.
I'd very much appreciate some advice. Thanks.
