Right now, I'm converting my entire CD collection to FLAC for archiving. But I also have some records, cassette tapes and (gasp) 8-tracks to "archive" as well.

I'd like some tips on the best hardware to use for the initial analog to digital conversion (presumably to WAV), as well as best practices for noise reduction without compromising the signal. I'd also like to hear thoughts on when/if it's appropriate to upconvert to stereo.
I haven't checked the Wiki for these topics yet, but will soon.

Heh, you're right - this probably is pretty craptastic at $50. (The MSRP is $120, but still...)

Nevertheless I'll give it a try...who knows, it might surprise me. And as I don't have a (working) turntable at the moment, at minimum I'll have a basic record player again.
