Of all the hundreds of USB gizmos, this is my favorite. A plug and play USB turntable. I know I'm not the only one that has a few 45's and LP's in the back of the closet. I am? Well anyway. This turntable is compatible for Mac or PC. Belt drive with anti-skating! Anti-skating! There is a pre-amp and yes, a needle in a cartridge. I'm starting to wonder if this isn't a magnificent hoax product. It's just too fun. Pop on that obscure 45 and digitize it for your iPod. The sweetest? It's only $150 from Urban Outfitters.
