Playing music with the turntable is straightforward on a stereo.


Playing via USB on Windows XP requires working with some advanced Windows settings, including a dis/reconnect step that is undocumented. Once you get it set up to play, though, using the horribly-named 'EZ' archiving software is just awful. The tracks do not actually separate automatically (software ver. 2), the Gracenote software does not correctly label tracks. In fact, it incorrectly labels them, then forces you to re-label them manually, about three extra steps per track. No way to shut off and by-pass the Gracenote feature. The software doesn't tell you how many tracks it recorded until you're more than half way through manually relabeling them, and doesn't let you know which track you're labeling, so you have to enter your best guess at track names, then listen to the MP3's, throw out the ones that are partial tracks, re-name the rest, then re-record the missed tracks. The software doesn't let you skip any of these steps and I'm VERY handy with this type of software.

I bought this to archive 44 albums for my parents last Christmas. In all, I've wasted three Saturdays now, just trying to get either of the first two of the albums correctly recorded in MP3. No luck yet. Just a colossal waste of time and money for me.
