I'd recommend getting a nice record player with a built in preamp with a stereo output to an audio interface into your DAW. I have done this on many times before and it captures the warmth of vinyl but also ensures the high end is still there. I use an Audio Technica belt driven record player into a Steinberg UR44. I like this set up because it includes the analog sound from the vinyl/preamp but also the crisp high end as the UR44 is 24 bit/192 Hz. These have given me the best results, but there are many ways to record vinyl

Thank you for your reply :)

I already own an audio Interface (focusrite 2i2) so your recomendation is to buy a belt drive turntable...?
