Sony takes up where Sharper Image left off: Vinyl to USB turntable


The PS-LX300USB is one of the most exciting new inventions to come down the pike in a long time. See, it’s a record turntable that connects to a computer. Records are disks encoded with music or spoken word and these records spin. A needle touches these disks and transmits the audio electronically to a digital sound thingie that puts it on the USB cable and then into your computer. If you have a lot of vinyl records — and you didn’t transfer all of them to lossless audio 10 years ago — then this is just the thing for you. It will cost $150 and comes with Sound Forge Audio Studio and a big steaming bag of WTF.
