If not, then that maybe the problem.
I am in the process of learning how to convert my vinyl records to cd and am running into a problem with static distortion, that generates everytime I turn the turntable on. It gets picked up with the rest of the music and I have not been able to filter it completely. The turntable is a Vestax Handy Trax and it is plugged directly to my computer (Intel Celeron 2.53GHz / Windows XP) less than two feet away. There is no ground wire on the turntable. What do I need to do or obtain, to get rid of the static?
