Capture from vinyl with no pre-amp outputs?

by caster / August 23, 2004 4:31 AM PDT

I own alot of old LPs that I'd like to move to CDs. I've got the software to do it but the only LP player/amp I have is an old and inexpensive one that only has outputs for 8 ohm speakers.

(I know there will be quality issues but I'll accept those as my ears aren't up to hi-fi standards anyway.)

Is there any way to match my player's output to my computer's onboard sound input (VIA AC'97)?

Radio Shack has some audio equipment that you can mix audio, control the amplitudes before you send it to the audio card. Almost world wide now as to stores.

Check the Radio Shack catalog. If memory serves me there is a Phono Pre-amp in the kit section. If I can find it again I will repost.

I had the same prblem but was lucky to purchase a closeout Radio Shack SA-155 $69.00 stereo amplifier with phono input and Line out for $20.00. Also try Ebay and search for the SA-155 Integrated Stereo Amplifier.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
