Ferenc Hutterer asked about re-recording his phonograph collection in digital form

You can digitize your analog music collection in a number of ways, but however you do it, it's a hassle. And it always results in disappointing sound quality.

That's why I prefer to buy the music again in digital form, either as easy-to-rip CDs (a bargain if you can find them used) or as downloads. If you go the download route, I strongly recommend you buy from a site that sells unprotected .mp3s, such as Amazon and Napster. That way, there's never a question about your right to play what you bought.

Retro style, modern features: Vinyl ripping with the Crosley Revolution
By Tim Conneally | Published October 7, 2010, 12:50 PM

When the Walkman portable cassette player revolution had firmly gripped the world in the early 80's, Audio-Technica produced a unique product that capitalized on the portability trends, but applied it to vinyl records. It created tiny, clamshell-style record players that stripped away the big turntable in favor of one with a 3.5" diameter that could still play 12" LPs.

The most notable versions of this turntable were the AT-727 "Sound Burger," and the AT-770 "Mister Disc." And though these devices weren't commercial breakthroughs in their time, they now fetch significant sums on eBay, and have enjoyed a massive resurgence in consumer interest.

The interest has been so great, that two weeks ago, retro consumer electronics company Crosley Radio released a new turntable styled after the Sound Burger named the Revolution that goes a step further than its forerunner by adding modern trimmings like a USB interface and FM transmitter.
