Denon's DP-200USB: turns vinyl into MP3

The ION-style DP-200USB “fully automatic” turntable’s most appealing feature is that it’ll convert your analogue records into MP3 files and store them directly on a Flash drive.

A USB port on the turntable’s front allows a drive to be slotted in and all that’s then required of you is to press the start and record buttons. Well, you’ll have to put the 7in or 12in, 45 or 33.33rpm record onto the spindle, of course.

The turntable comes with PC-based software that takes the recording off the Flash disc and splits the band into tracks by listening out for the relatively silent spaces between them. So albums with hidden tracks could be slightly annoying.

Denon’s DP-200USB is available now in a silver or black body, priced at £200 ($220/€293). ®
