Vinyl revival

Well, not exactly, but it may be a way to finally get those LP records transferred to a digital format so you can listen to them in the car, or on a portable music player. In Jaycar's new catalogue, out today, I noticed something called a USB/SD Turntable/Receiver which can record your LPs directly to an SD card or flash memory without a computer or software. Of course, you could use it as a turntable too, but that wouldn't be as convenient to carry around as, say, an MP3 player or iPod Touch. The price is a very reasonable AU$169 - and as well as recording to SD card, it can also do playback from them. Hours of fun - and useful to boot.
