Before MP3 there was Cd’s, before that tapes and even earlier still there was vinyl (and somewhere along the way mini-discs came and went).
Though vinyl still seems to be alive (just) it’s not the most portable of formats. This latest gadget the USB Turntable helps you rip your vinyl collection onto your PC so you can carry it around in your pocket rather than a rucksack.
You connect the turntable to your PC, spin your vinyl and capture the music (scratches and all), your old classics can then be saved as MP3s to be played on a more modern medium.
The USB turntable is available from Firebox for 120 pounds.
