It is a soundcard and turntable pre-amp; it comes with good software; and it makes brilliant recordings of my own worn records. They even sound like CDs. The ION uRecord ION uRecord USB Soundcard & Turntable Pre-Amp
is also easy to use.
But I first wanted a pre-amp, to go between my turntable and my hifi amplifier, and I assumed that came as read. However, I'd missed the fact that the only output is via a USB cable. Nevermind, I now have the pre-amp on order at only £12 and I'm building a great CD collection of my old vinyl records.
