For Christmas my mom gifted me an Ilp Turntable and I'm kind of in the dark about what to do. The only output I have is my ATH M50's which are always hooked up to my computer.
So I have many questions now:
What else do I need?
Can I just hook a USB cable from the back of the Table to a USB slot in the back of my Computer for playback?
If so, what software do I use for play while the record is playing?

Thanks in advance for any help that is provided laugh.gif

YES! Depending on your computer/operating system, you may have to select the USB device as your sound device or "soundcard". As far as the computer is concerned, the turntable is a soundcard.

(Typically, you can only use one "soundcard" at a time, so you may not be able to play music from your hard drive while the turntable is selected.)

USB is probably easier & better, but you may have another option. If you have a desktop computer, it will have a line-level audio input and with an adapter cable to connect the RCA audio output.

You can also connect the RCA cables to a regular stereo or TV if it has A/V inputs. (Your turntable has a built-in preamp, so you don't need anything additional to connect to a stereo system.) You can even connect directly to yout powered (active) speakers/monitors (bypassing the computer) if you have the correct cables. You cannot connect to "regular" non-powered stereo speakers, but you can connect to regular computer speakers (which have an amplifier built in).

FYI - Your speakers connect to an output. The turntable connects to an input. wink.gif The signal comes out of the turntable's output and into the computer's input.
