Numark TTi Turntable

The Good The Numark TTi turntable includes an iPod dock and USB output that allows you to record your old records directly to your iPod, Mac, or PC.

The Bad Not all iPods are compatible with the Numark TTi; construction quality is sub-par for the price; and the bundled recording software leaves much to be desired.

The Bottom Line The Numark TTi is an average turntable with a unique iPod recording feature, but it doesn't take the sting out of digitizing your records.

Numark TTi Turntable

Turning vinyl LPs into digital MP3s is an awkward and time-consuming process, no matter how you cut it. If your ultimate goal is to turn the records on your shelf into files on your iPod, the Numark TTi turntable ($449 list, $250 street) offers the shortest distance between the two music mediums. Using the TTi's built-in iPod dock, vinyl recordings are captured directly to your iPod without the hassle of using your computer as a middleman.
