I have around 1000 LPs in various condition, having been collecting key recordings for 30 years or so. LPs are delicate, bulky, and inconvenient. So what to do?
In this talk I'll describe how I transfer audio from LP onto digital media, fixing the worst problems of the old LP on the way. I'll mention tools such as gramofile, gwc, lame, and cdrecord. I'll also discuss what to look for at the input end --- the turntable, tone arm and preamplifier; and ask for help with sound card technology.
