I am aware that there are turntable kits on the market, many for under $100, that include the software to accomplish the digital conversion process. So why I am going to all of this trouble?
I already own an audiophile grade turntable, so buying another turntable would be redundant. Further, the "kits" are entry-level, utility products. I am interested in capturing the highest possible fidelity from my records and I only want to do this once, so that's why I am not using one of the "kits".
