Digitize Your Music
To transfer vinyl to your PC You will need to install a digital audio editor. Such software is widely available as a free download (such as Audacity) from the internet. This is a simple interface which allows monitoring of volume and balance whilst transferring your audio to your PC hard drive.
Audio editing software includes a level meter which indicates the output level achieved when playing a piece of vinyl. You should adjust the output as necessary via the ‘Level’ control located on the front panel. Always take special note of record levels to ensure optimum recording quality.
Why do I need a preamp?
A phono pre-amplifier is designed to boost the signal from a turntable or record player before the signal is passed to your Hi-Fi amplifier or receiver. Typically the signal output from a turntable or record player is quite weak, and it's required to be boosted before it hits the main amplifier of your stereo or hi-fi unit.
On the Flip-Side...
Some hi-fi amplifiers or receivers have a dedicated "phono" input and some modern turntables have a "line" level output - this simply means they have a phono preamp built in and an external one is not necessary. However if your system or player doesn't have this feature built in, or if you want to use a high-end one, you'll need a separate preamp - like the Rega Fono Mini.
