I'm looking at some music systems to convert my old lps to cd. I am hearing impaired and need a loud output. If anyone can advise me, I would appreciate the help.

I'm looking at these...

Hi all! So, yes, I'm bumping this old thread back to the top, but I had a thought about upgrading my turntable, which is many years old. Does anyone audiophile here have recommendations for current, quality record player that isn't going to break the bank?

Are you trying to do what the thread suggests? When I was copying LPs, I got a decent old TT, bought a new needle, and a digitizer box to hook up to a computer. You'll need to digitally clean up whatever you copy, rather than somehow convert an LP directly to a cdr. If you only need to digitize a few LPs, might be cheaper to send them to someone who's already got a setup for it.

Not necessarily, although it seems like a cool bonus feature to have this option built into the turntable!

I can't advise you on good TT. I researched some dedicated turntable messageboards, and got an idea of what to look for in the local used market (craigslist). Then I bought a new needle, and a used Behringer U-Phono 202 on ebay. There are other digitizer brands but this got the best reviews then, in 2012. I prefer separate units for separate functions, rather than combo units. If something breaks, you don't have to throw out the entire thing. Also, the Behringer can be hooked up to other equipment like a cassette player, so you can digitize tapes.

Just googling, I can see some brand name companies that make combo units like Audio-Technica ($250), but it's less expensive to buy their plain TT ($100) and separate digitizer box.
