    Hey All

    Hello from Northwest Arkansas. I've lurked around a little, but just started an account. You guys have a great forum here.

    I have been into audio since I was young, but only fairly recently got into anything analog. I started out with a flimsy RCA turntable and now have a decent modified Technics SL-1200 I've been using for the last 5 or so years.

    My Dad stopped by and recently gave me the task of transferring over his old cassette tapes to digital. In the process, I got hooked on yet another analog medium.

    I bought a Nakamichi CR4A for myself and have been having fun recording my records over to some nice chrome tape.

    I'm looking forward to learning more here.

    Cody

    Welcome to Phoenix Cody. What hardware are you using for the conversion of the tapes?

    Nothing too fancy except the Nakamichi CR4A cassette deck I bought. From the deck, I'm running an RCA to auxiliary cable into the line in on my Thinkpad E570. I'm using Audacity to capture it all.

    I may have to take a look at a better Analog to Digital converter in the future, but the built-in card is fine for now since I'm just exploring how everything works.

    Welcome aboard, Cody. There is a simple and inexpensive audio interface, which is quite popular, and I use it in my own system. It's a Behringer U-PHONO UFO202. (http://www.music-group.com/Categorie...UFO202/p/P0A12)

    Good choices in cassette deck and turntable for your system.

    Nando.

    Nando.

    Thanks for the suggestion on the Behringer. I'll look into that. It is definitely well priced.
