Because transferring an analog album to a digital file is a one-for-one, real-time process, you'll want to be prepared to have the volume turned up, at least a little, during the transfer process. You need to be able to hear if there's a skip in the record and when each side of the record ends.
There is an unexpected benefit to this: you get to listen to every album that you own, from start to finish. I delighted in re-discovering some wonderful music in my collection that I hadn't listened to in a very long time. (After all, I bought the album in the first place because I like the music a lot to begin with!)
