    What is your budget? Which Macbook dor you own? Does it have a FireWire interface?

    If your Macbook does not have FireWire, there are lots and lots of USB phono interfaces around. I've not been particularly impressed by any that I have heard, but the TerraTec iVinyl and the ART USB Phono Plus are a little better than the worst.

    I have a MBP Laptop, OS X 10.5.8, 2.4GHZ, Intel Core 2 Duo, Memory 2GB 667 MHZ DDR2 SDRAM, which has firewire.

    Most of the stuff on the market is geared towards the use of instruments and MICs etc so I am paying for stuff which is not relevant for purpose. I am never going to use its a MIC or plug in a guitar & stuff like that, its not going to happen! Budget wise I was looking up to £100 in the secondhand market.

    I was looking at the ART USB Phono plus & the Terra Tec iVinyl funny enough! they look like are concentrating on the purpose I am using it for, the later records up to 96khz.
