USB Turntable

In addition to its recent Stripy Speakers, Firebox is also offering a simple turntable intended for converting vinyl records into digital files. Connecting to any MacOS X or Windows system, the USB Turntable can send the music of any 33 or 45 RPM record to an audio capture program such as Audacity (included with the player) or GarageBand. The less-common 78 RPM format can also be recorded by adjusting the playback speed in editing, Firebox says. Anti-skating control prevents the needle from slipping, and the turntable can plug into any minijack input to double as a conventional record player. Firebox is shipping the device for $228, though sales are currently limited to EU buyers.
