Hi there... Once, long ago when I was still using Microsoft hardware, I purchased and used successfully a little 'box' to digitalise some old LP's. It's called TerraTec phono PreAmp studio USB - Audio Restoration Solution. As far as I can tell it requires a computer running a Microsoft operating system. I used it with an analogue NAD turntable and just plugged in the 'box' to my computer with a USB cable (mostly used with printers - sorry I've forgotten the exact name for the cable) The 'box' was connected to my turntable with RCA cables (in and output) The 'box' doesn't require mains electricity since it gets everything is needs via the USB cable. I remember that I only had to connect the 'box' with my computer which automatically searched for new hardware, installed in and allowed me to run it. I've just read that the PreAmp Studio USB doesn't demand special operating programs in order to function. The usual USB-operating programs are the only requirements. Now my question - can I use my 'box' on my Mac? I have read somewhere on line that Mac users using an analogue record player need a PreAmp something. So I have a PreAmp box but don't know if it will work with a Mac...... knowing my luck probably not!
