    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...?

    Yes. If you already have an interface you'll just need a good belt driven vinyl with a preamp. If you're looking for something pretty cheap I'd recommend this one: Audio Technica AT-LP60BK Fully Automatic Belt-Drive Stereo Turntable, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008872SIO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_El6fxbEJB5NGH
