Denon DP-200USB Turntable Rips Vinyl To MP3

While many people will tell you that vinyl produces a better sound than a digital audio file, there’s no denying that an MP3 player takes the cake when it comes to portability. So the DP-200USB turntable from Denon allows you to easily convert your old records to MP3 files, before your kids go all DJ Qbert on them. (Though the belt drive motor could hinder their DJ aspirations.)

Recording an album is as easy as inserting a USB flash drive into the front of the player and hitting the start and record buttons. From what I can tell, the DP-200USB creates a large single MP3 file of the entire record, but it comes with Trans Music Manager software which will automatically split the file into individual tracks by detecting the gaps between songs. The Denon DP-200USB is available now for around $300, and comes in your choice of silver or black.

    $300 and their first choice for compression is sound trashing 192 kbps MP3 instead of a loss-less compression like FLAC? Shame on Denon.

    This is unbelievable. Just another representative proof that we are moving into the digital age. What a perfect artefact – a piece of DJ equipment that actually very precisely represents the transition from the old to the new – analogue to digital!
