This kit gives great results using your existing stereo ( regular headphone socket required ).

Just check our eBay Feedback below.


Our kit connects the headphone socket on your Walkman, HiFi system,
Portable music centre, or Minidisc player. Alternatively, you can connect the phono outputs direct from a turntable and post-process the recording using Audacity on the Mac - our video guide shows you how.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Does the USB adapter work with all versions of Mac OSX?
A. Yes. We've personally tested it with 10.6.8 through to El Capitan OSX 10.11.5 (tested 21/05/2016 )

Q. Don't I need a pre-amp for my turntable?
A. No. You can connect our kit to the headphone output on the amp, or direct to turntable's phono outputs. If you record direct from phono outputs on a turntable, then some simple post-processing is required in Audacity - our video guide shows you how.
