    Is it possible to use this turntable with my computer to save LPs to RealPlayer, for example, and then burn CDs? I do not use an MP3 player.

      Answer

      Yes. You connect the USB cable, included, from the back of the turntable to your computer and install the Sony Sound Forge Studio software. The program has a wizard that walks you through recording LPs. Basically you open the wizard and it waits for you to click the "record" button on the screen. You start playing your album and after the needle drops click record. You can see it creating the wav file. When your song or LP is done playing you click "stop". The wizard will then ask you to enter the Artist name, Album Title, and Song Title(s). If you did record one whole side it will recognize the separate tracks and create separate wav files for each track. After the process completes you can use the wav files or click File, Save As and change the format to whatever else format you want (there are many options). You can burn it to a CD or listen using RealPlayer or MediaPlayer. It is very easy! I love it!

        Answer

        It has one cable with standard RCA Red/White jacks which you can connect to your receiver or stereo. If your stereo doesn't accept the Red/White jacks but has an AUX port (auxiliary) you can buy a short adapter cable that converts the two jack ends Red/White to one and then plug that into the AUX port.

          Absolutely. The Sony PS-LX300USB turntable operating instructions indicate on page 8 that, “When playback is finished, the tone arm returns to the arm stand automatically, then the platter stops rotating.” Good Luck.

        Amplifier   (3 Answers)

        When reading the specs on this turntable it said: Built In Phono Preamp. I hope this means that it has an internal amp in it. In order for my new reciever to use this turntable it must have it's own amp. Am I right in assuming that (Built In Phono Preamp) means that this turntable has it's own amp? Thanks, Judy

          Answer

          Hello Judy. Welcome to the Best Buy community. Thank you for your question. Absolutely. You are correct that the Sony PS-LX300USB turntable does feature a built-in phono preamp and user adjustable equalizer switch that enables this unit to be compatible with any amplifier that does not feature a dedicated phono input. Rest assured, that you can connect the Sony turntable to your new receiver that is without a phono input. The built-in phono preamp brings the audio output of the turntable up to that of an ordinary line level input device such as a CD player, or cassette deck, etc. However, the operating instructions indicate on page 16 that the sound may become low or distorted if the turntable is not connected to an amplifier’s phono input. It is my opinion, that for best audio performance of the Sony turntable, this unit should be connected to an amplifier that features a dedicated phono input. Good Luck.

            No. You can’t connect the Sony PS-LX300USB turntable to your TV. Please note, that the Sony turntable’s operating instructions indicate on page 7 that this unit’s RCA output jack must be connected to an RCA input of “your stereo system amplifier.” Good Luck.

          does it take the static noise out of lp   (3 Answers)

            It does a beautiful job playing LP's but if your album has scratches and smudges you will hear it. It really helps if you clean your LP's with an electronic alcohol wipe, just once at least, to remove dust, hairs and smudges. You can use the Sony Sound Forge Studio software to remove the noise. It has editing and effects tools just for that purpose, as well as other things such as reverb, etc.
