I'm brand new to this site and had posted the same question in the 'Entry Level' section but realized that this section would be more appropriate.
I just bought myself a used starter turntable as well as came upon a very large collection of excellent records.
The only thing I was asked to do as a favour for the record collection was to do create a number of CDs from some of the records and tracks.
Which sound card and software would be appropriate for this type of conversion on the computer? My turntable is Music Hall MMF-5 and I have Mission Cyrus 1 amp (which I still love to this day) so phono jack isn't an issue.
I was recommended to use M-Audio Audiophile 2496? Your thoughts? What about the software?
Currently, I have Creative Sound Blaster Live (basic card) and have Nero and Cakewalk (I'll have to check the version but had it for over 6 years, without ever installing it on the PC) for softwares.
I don't want to spend crazy amount of money to do this but still want high quality results? Yes, I know...you get what you pay for.
Thanks in advance!!!!
