This is the turntable with a pair of integrated speakers that converts a classic vinyl record's songs into MP3s. The turntable plugs into a computer using the included USB cable, and its included software works on Windows 8, 7, XP, Vista, or a Mac, automatically separating 33 1/3-, 45-, and 78-rpm record tracks into individual MP3s. At any time during recording you can pause to select only certain songs, turn the album over, and change albums to make compilation recordings. The turntable’s platter uses a proprietary suspension system to eliminate feedback while listening to records through the two built-in 1-watt full-range speakers. Enabling MP3 conversion from a variety of external media types, its 1/8" auxiliary input can connect to a cassette player or even a classic 8-track player. Its RCA outputs can connect to a home stereo system and its headphones output enables private listening during conversions. Its faux wood construction has a natural finish; includes a transparent dust cover and felt slip mat. Needle plays LPs for at least 100 hours before requiring replacement. Plugs into AC. 4 1/2" H x 16 1/2" W x 14 1/2" D. (10 1/4 lbs.)
