Fully automatic turntable with USB port and built-in MP3 encoder!

Now you can easily convert all of your favorite vinyl records to MP3 files with Denon’s DP-200USB fully automatic turntable. Equipped with an internal MP3 encoder, along with a front panel USB port, the DP-200USB lets you play your favorite LPs and create MP3 tracks easily and automatically. The included PC software features Audio Waveform Recognition, which checks the first 15 seconds of each track and searches the extensive Gracenote Internet music tracks database to capture the track’s meta-deta (artist, title, etc.). The software also features Auto Track Divide, which notes silent breaks between tracks and automatically inserts a new track tag for each track (you also have the option of doing this manually). The front panel USB port allows direct connection to a PC, as well as connection to a USB drive or an external hard disk drive. In addition to the USB connection, the DP-200USB features conventional stereo outputs, which can be configured with or without RIAA equalization, for full compatibility with the widest range of audio components.

Denon DP-200USB turntable has its high’s and low’s I did quite a bit searching and waiting to find a decent turntable that I could both connect to my stereo system for LP playing, as well connect to my computer for digitizing of those same LP’s. Having owned and used a traditional Denon turntable for 20yrs, I thought I’d stick with a brand that I knew and could trust. My first impressions of this turnable have been mostly favorable….it works with well/sounds good playing LP’s and the digitizing is quite easy using a UBS drive and the provided software. Once you’ve recorded your music onto the USB drive, the “autosplitter” function breaks up your music into tracks. With a bit of renaming, the end result is good for both listening on an MP3 player or burning an audio CD. Things that are really annoying/dumb: 1)the recording function doesn’t stop when the LP has ended and the turntable has turned itself off..so unless you’re standing by the turntable you end up with a lot of dead air recornded. 2)the turntable belt drive is…

Dead easy to set up and use This is the USB turntable for someone like me, who isn’t interested in researching and sorting sound cards, software and cabling, and who loves music but isn’t a compulsive audiophile.Here’s how it works: unpack and set up the turntable, connect it to a sound system, stick a flash drive in the port, put on a record (LP or 45), push a couple of buttons, and you’re in business. Records in real time, files are stored at a rate of 192kbps. The software for splitting files is easy to work with–however, Mac users need not apply (don’t know if there’s a workaround). “Auto splitter” works okay if the vinyl is pristine; I use “manual splitter” mostly to eliminate the sound of the tone arm drop at the beginning of each side. As another reviewer has noted, the Gracenotes option for naming tracks isn’t much use, as that database largely covers only CD era releases. I rename files after importing them into iTunes.So yes, labor is involved: You have to hang around…

Better options available I purchased the Denon DP-200USB to transfer vinyl LP’s to CD. It was to replace a TEAC P-A688 amplified turntable that I have had for some time and is due a needle replacement. I considered the Denon amplified turntable to be an upgrade. This did not work out as well as I had hoped. The method of transfer is through the line-in of my Creative Audigy sound card. I have used both Nero Wave Editor 2 and Audacity software. Upon connecting the Denon, I noticed a reduced signal based on what I had expected based on the TEAC. I connected both the Denon and TEAC to the aux input of my Bose Wave radio and confirmed that the TEAC had slightly more volume than the Denon. I had verified the Denon On/Off equalizer switch was in the correct (default) position. This in itself was not a showstopper. The major drawback to the Denon is the lack of a damped tone arm system for lowering the tone arm anywhere but at the beginning of the LP. I do not feel comfortable trying to pick up the tone…
