Hi, I'm both new to the forum and vinyl, and I'm looking to get my first turntable system. I'm trying to stay under $300-400, and I realize that it won't buy me the nicest system, but I just want something small for personal use in my dorm room. I'm really interested in these USB turntables (I have a number of LPs I would like to turn digital), but my concern is none of them have headphone jacks listed under features. Is it safe to assume they have one? Here are the models I'm looking at:
Numark TTUSB- http://www.amazon.com/Numark-TTUSB-Turnt...8662&sr=1-1
Ion ITTUSB- http://www.amazon.com/Ion-iTTUSB-Turntab...8662&sr=1-2
Gem Sound GT USB- http://www.amazon.com/Gem-Sound-GT-USB-B...8770&sr=1-6
Now, since these all have integrated pre-amps, would any pair of powered monitors work with it? I'm very tight on space in a dorm room, so I'm trying to have as few components as possible. These are the speakers I was looking at:

I don't really know much about this stuff, so I'm open to any suggestions as long as they fall in my budget, not too big, and I can easily convert LPs to mp3s. Thanks for your help.
