NEWS: Copy your vinyl to CD with TEAC's LP-R400 turntable CD recorder

Have you got a stash of old vinyl records at home that you don't listen to any more? If so, this handy device from TEAC could be the answer to your prayers.

The TEAC LP-R400 turntable CD recorder and tuner can copy your vinyl direct to CD, keeping your records pristine and enabling you to expand your CD collection.

The device costs £299, and uses blank CD-R and CD-RW discs. It also incorporates an AM/FM tuner with a backlit, digital display and has an auxiliary line input for connecting other devices to record from.

The three-speed turntable runs at 33, 45 and 78 rpm and has an auto-return function when the record stops playing. Power output from the stereo speakers is 2 x 3.5w, and there's a headphone jack if you want to listen in private.

Automatic and manual track increment control is standard, as is a remote control, recording level control and a recording level indicator. The CD player includes program, shuffle and repeat functions.
