£200 Denon USB turntable allows direct recording of LPs onto memory sticks at the push of a button

This is the £200 DP-200USB turntable from Denon, which – thanks to a built in phono stage and MP3 encoder – allows you to copy LPs and singles directly to USB memory sticks at the push of a button.

It can also deliver music to computers, portable hard drives or pocket players – in fact any storage device with USB connectivity.

The turntable comes complete with Trans Music Converter software for PCs, which allows editing and, via Audio Waveform Recoginition, Gracenote database lookup for information about the music.

There's Auto Track Divide, which senses the gaps between tracks, and a manual override, while the turntable also has conventional stereo analogue outputs in addition to the USB socket on the front panel.

The DP-200USB is available now, in a choice of black or silver.
