Re: Requesting advice: Vinyl -> Computer

a turntable needs a special kind of amplification, different than, say, a cassette deck.

so get your best amp, take a line out of the back and get the adapters to input it into the "line in" (NOT MIC IN!!) of your soundcard. You can set input levels using the windows (or creative or whatever) mixer, usually found in the tray.

You want a healthy level, but in the digital world even one red light (clip) is unacceptable. You'll probably have to take a couple passes to find the correct levels for recording.
