Short info

Spin real vinyl and convert to MP3s with the Stanton T.55 Turntable.

Detailed information

Stanton has been making cartridges for turntables for many years, and with the resurgence of turntables and vinyls, it's making new USB Turntables as well.  The T.55 USB is a belt driven turntable (using the Stanton 500.v3 cartridge) with USB and RCA outputs for converting vinyl music into digital form (with the free Audacity software).  For a more expensive direct drive equivalent, there is the T.92 USB.
